August Meeting

Well another month has flown by. Garry and Tom were both back at club meeting last night and both had some wonderful photos taken on their holidays to share with us all. Garry's were of some glorious scenery in NZ and Tom's were photos of two fantastic gardens in Ireland. Both Garry and Tom told us of the different problems they had in the other countries taking photos as opposed to taking shots here. Problems they both obviously overcome as their photos were lovely.

Then Glen showed us some photos of places he has visited while holidaying overseas. He told us of the many problems that he came up against. Talk about a good laugh. He was amazing and I for one thoroughly enjoyed his talk. The tourist pitfalls of photography would sum up his talk in a nutshell. I especially loved the story of him and his wife on the cruise ship and then how he tried to leave her in the Sahara Desert...... I know he failed because I have seen her since the photo was taken. LOL

I have the results of last months competition. Gerard Saide from Toowoomba was our judge.

First place was Kevin....

We also had two Highly Commendable and both went to Mick.....

Our competition for August is Food..... It was one that made us think.... Here are the entries that we have received.














Welcome to the new members who came along last night. I hope you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to seeing you again next month.

Until next time.......... happy snapping......
