Chairman's Blog

Hi everybody,

Welcome to my blog. Another great night in the company of John Walters, he never disappoints and the last meeting was no exception. I find his easy style of both presentation and photography so refreshing today, when many of us seem to be more concerned about equipment and technique, with the subject relegated to second place.

His knowledge of natural history shines through, along with an enthusiasm for his subjects that would not look out of place on a 9 year old boy discovering his first creepy crawly. His photography along with his painted sketches just add another layer to his talks and the man himself.

So thank you John for a very informative and entertaining evening and I hope to see you at our club again. I pretty much think you can take it as a given that we will be asking you to come and give us another talk.

Talking of creepy crawlies, our next competition is themed as 'Insects', and this is to include any type of creepy crawly, from sawflys to slugs and caterpillars to chafer bugs, butterflies to bumblebees. So its time to get down on your knees and find the little critters. Good luck.

Our next meeting is a talk given by our very own Phil Markey, who will be covering subjects diverse in both content and locations, such as wolves in Slovakia, Snow Leopards on Kyrgyzstan and tropical plants in Taiwan. So make a date in your diaries for that one on the 14th.

Saturday 17th November sees the Kingswood Salver inter club Print panel competition being held at the Bovey Tracey Golf course. This year I feel we have a strong entry and could be in with a chance of winning. A big thank you goes to those who submitted pictures for consideration in that panel and thanks also to the selection Panel for doing such a lot of hard work to sift through those pics and making the panel a good one.

Finally, another reminder that the Altered Images group will be meeting at Peter’s place on the 15th and if you are interested in taking your images to another level, some might say another place, I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms.

PS. The Primary Colours themed PDI competition on the 13th Feb next year has raised a query or three, so to put every ones mind at rest, for this competition it has been decided that the three primary colours are to be RED, YELLOW and BLUE.

That’s me done for now, I can’t be at the next meeting, so Tom has kindly volunteered to stand in for me, I will see you all on the 28th.

Garry Wingrove, Chairman.

 

PS - Members, we are starting to consider images for external competitions that are coming up in January so we would like you to email any images you'd like considered to photos@tavistockcameraclub.org.uk - don't be shy, we want as many images as possible from as many members as possible and as soon as possible to have a look at for selection.

If you have a free Flickr account then it's worth looking at this change in the accounts limitations that may apply to you.
