On the face of it the theme for June - Waterways - is pretty straightforward: canals, rivers, streams. But we're expecting our members to be a bit more imaginative and won't be surprised if they reverse it - ways with water, perhaps: water droplets, hosepipes? It's quite a fluid subject.
The date of the meeting is 18th June and once again we'll be holding it via Zoom. An email with a link to the meeting will be sent to all members just prior to the meeting. Just click on the link to open the Zoom session via a browser, click on the buttons to start your audio and video and you should be good to go.
Please submit your Waterways and Image of the Month photos by noon on 18th June.
This month we made our theme The Long View, anticipating a wide-ranging exploration of its meaning. Suitably challenged, our members didn't disappoint and submitted images that imaginatively covered the three main interpretations of this theme: time, distance and length.
Plants and animals featured widely in the Image of the Month photos, but it was David Kallmeier's Dandelion Ballerina (right), a delicate and meticulously constructed macro photograph of a dandelion seed, that was the runaway favourite.
All the photos submitted this month can be seen on the gallery page.
VE Day Celebrations Photo Challenge - Results
West Haddon Photo Club challenged members of the West Haddon Live (WHL) Facebook group to submit pictures of the VE Day Celebrations. These were uploaded to WHL and voted on by the members who liked their favourite.
The picture with the most likes was posted by Kimberley Jane Swain and the runner up was Michelle Elizabeth - congratulations to them.
To see Kimberley's and Michelle's pictures and all the other entries have a look at the slideshow and gallery on the Photo Challenges page.
That cursed coronavirus continues to curtail our camerawork, so apart from a couple of recent images, most photos came from members' back catalogues.
Happily this meant we were treated to Tony Teague's dreamy picture of Tuscan countryside in the members' favourite image: Dawn, Val D’Orcia (left).
Next Photo Challenge - Insects
Take a photo of an insect (but you can include spiders, earwigs or any bug or creepy-crawly) - and post it to the West Haddon Live! Facebook group. Your photo must be taken and posted to WHL between 16th and 24th May. Don't forget to take a look at photos taken by others and like your favourite to vote for it.
The photographer whose photo receives the most likes will be announced here and all photos submitted will be uploaded to the Photo Challenges page after the closing date.
