If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted and musicians denoted? How about deranged cowboys, debarked tree surgeons, and depressed dry cleaners? One of life's mysteries is how a two pound box of chocolates can make a person gain five pounds. Yes, obviously the Fordingbridge Camera Club is on its summer break and you find that your mind wanders a little.
If you are in need of mental stimulation why not come and see our stand at some of the summer’s country shows. We will be at many of them: Fordingbridge Festival Saturday 18th July, Ellingham Show Saturday 8th August and Frogham Fair Saturday 29th August. You can talk about photography, pick the brains of some of our experienced members and take a close look at our work. We are a friendly, go-ahead club meeting at Avonway Community Centre at 7.30pm on alternate Wednesdays. Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk will have our programme for the new season a little later. It is a mixture of talks by visiting top photographers, coupled with opportunities to show your work on top quality equipment and have it commented on by experienced photographic judges. Visitors are always welcome for a small fee. In addition to our regular meetings we are devoting many evenings for those who want, as a group, to set themselves new challenges and then to review the results collectively. These additional sessions have proven to be very popular but are only open to club members.
If mental stimulation is still needed whilst we are holidaying why not write clerihews (humorous verse about someone who is named) “Cecil B DeMille - much against his will- was persuaded to keep Moses - out of the War of the Roses.” (historian Nicholas Bentley)
