September -– almost the end of summer and most of us have now, sadly, returned from summer holidays.
My wife has always wanted to see the world so I am thinking of buying her an atlas. What really worries me however is that if flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal? Even If you have only been on a motoring trip you will still have had to drive carefully - it isn’t only cars that can be recalled by their maker. But I can stop worrying now, the new season of the Fordingbridge Camera Club starts again on 9th September.
Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk contains our new programme. 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. Our speakers in the coming season include Sheila Haycox, (well known for landscape photography) and Paul Keene, a highly regarded wildlife photographer. Visitors are always welcome for a small fee. In addition to our regular meetings, we devote many evenings to 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.
In the meanwhile, why not come and see our stand at the summer country show at Frogham Fair on Saturday 29th August.
Before travelling, and worrying, I always check my passport; if I looked as bad as my photograph I would know I was certainly not well enough to travel.
And on a final note, did you hear about the man who drowned in a vat of varnish? A terrible end, but a lovely finish.
