It has been a glorious day in Bangor, but that’s all set to end for a while. Promise of rain and wind till at least the weekend. Surprising, the number that turned up tonight.
William and Michael have really entered the spirit of the project Old Bangor/New Bangor arranged by Gerry Coe. They presented some physical prints showing the old vs the new. I think we all agreed that modern day developments have created real problems in trying to match the precise viewpoints. The chief offenders are huge Car parking signs and trees. As usual we had a supply of memory sticks to work through and this took us until nearly 10.25pm to complete.
William and Michael’s Bangor photos raised quite a bit of discussion and debate. In both cases the results were very commendable.
Other submissions treated us to photos of odd shaped mushrooms together with sprightly comments from the back. Not Shirley this time as she was beside me at the front!
Angus had spent some time with Nigel on an outing and his submissions of bird photos was amazing. Well worth keeping for future competition work.
Kevin’s evening shots around Bangor featured a couple of ghosts. Nice novelty. Darren presented a memory stick with great photos of horsemanship. We discussed the merits of what makes a good presentation of a horse whilst striding over the jumps.
Last night there was a spectacular sunset across the lough and we were hoping for a repeat tonight but alas low cloud began rolling in. Some of the group disappeared after the tea break (thanks for tea Julie) to take some shots with Mark.
Sorry that it was a bit of a rush at the end when we finished up with Shirley’s shots of Linda, Helen’s daughter.
I’m sure everyone would want us to pass on our best regards to Deborah’s husband, Nigel after his recent health episode.
See you all on Friday again.
