Update from our meeting on Tuesday 11th December 2018

Good evening all,

Well, it’s now just over a week until the Big Man comes to all of us who have been good. I hope you’ve all been good, and that your weekend has been a good one too. On Friday, my family and I went to see Bohemian Rhapsody, the Freddie Mercury biopic. If you haven’t seen it, I can’t recommend it highly enough to you – a fabulous story and amazing musical performances too. Now of course I’m listening to old Queen albums to relive that part of my youth. Happy times.

But enough about my youth a movie-going habits, it’s time to talk about cameras.

Last Week’s Meeting – The Annual Print and Digital Competition
On Tuesday our guest judge Jane Lines joined us to take a look at some of our best images of 2018. Jane gave some excellent feedback and in the final analysis, these photographs came out on top:
3rd She’s the Boss
2nd Dubious Characters
1st Wet Day at Tod Show, by Paul Marshall
3rd Teenage Despair, Laos
2nd Bearded Dragon With Lunch
1st It’s My Book, by Lorraine Hinks
Congratulations to the winners Paul and Lorraine, and everyone who entered. It was great to see so many strong photos on the night.

Our Next Meeting, Tuesday 18th December – CHRISTMAS PARTY
On Tuesday it’s our Christmas Party, so don’t forget your Christmas Jumpers! There will be food, so don’t forget not to eat your tea! There will be a RAFFLE, so don’t forget some extra change and to BRING A RAFFLE PRIZE if you can. There will be a quiz, so don’t forget your pen! This should be a very enjoyable evening and a great way to call our Club year to a close as thoughts turn to Yuletide.

With that exciting news I’ll leave you to your busy day and bid you a good one. I’m looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, bedecked in festive attire and tinsel I hope. 🙂

Until then, my very best wishes as always,

Phill Connell, Secretary, Rochdale & District Camera Club
