The Group met at 10:15 on 8th August with the theme ‘Eye-catching Photographs’. Of the five portfolios submitted, John Hawke’s close up photograph of a Puffin was voted Best Picture. The Best Folio candidates all received one vote – John Hawke’s suggestion to add all individual best photographs from the other four folios to tha Group’s web site was unanimously agreed upon. Members talked about why they had chosen their photographs and it became clear that all photos evoked memories of past holidays and special events – there was certainly a very wide range of subjects.

Subsequent discussion centred on ways of storing photographs ranging from CDs to the Cloud. Also the current changes from camera producers in the near future with the disappearance of some SLRs in preference to mirror-less cameras as well as some manufacturers (Panasonic and Canon) abandoning the pocket camera in the wake of increased sales of Smart Phones with improved camera capabilities.

It was suggested that another field trip be organised in September – the consensus being a trip to Winchester – date to be confirmed.

Pam and Mike Liberson were ‘volunteered’ to give a short presentation at the next indoor meeting of their (2) holidays in Egypt
