I hope you’ve all had a great week and a wonderful weekend. It’s been another busy one in at Connell Towers, with another vehicle falling apart on Sunday. No sooner had we got Mrs C’s car back on the road than our beloved campervan Hetty decided to shed her exhaust. Some string and then some welding may have to do the trick until a brand new one gets fitted!
If you haven’t done so already, please note that we have some excellent Club meetings booked and our Syllabus pages have recently been updated, so please do take a look on the right hand side of the main Club website. – http://www.rochdalecameraclub.org.uk/
Tonight’s Meeting – Aviation Photography
Paul O’Hare has lined up a guest speaker tonight, so our grateful thanks are due. Joe will talk to us about aviation photography and show us some of the amazing photos he’s taken around the world. I’ve seen a few sneak previews and he’s had some fantastic access privileges which have enabled him to use his skills to produce stunning photographs. Tonight should be a real treat.
