One of the trials of Christmas lies in the terrible jokes in the crackers. Some horrors which appeared this year were:
What do you get when you cross a bullet and a sycamore in winter? A cartridge in a bare tree!
What is small, red and whispers? A hoarse radish!
What is blue and square? An orange in disguise!
But enough of this nonsense, Fordingbridge Camera Club remains the same happy, jolly environment and welcomes new members and visitors. We meet at Avonway Community Centre at 7.30pm most Wednesdays. Our website, www.fordingbridgecameraclub.org.uk contains our programme for the year, 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.
A recent session by Gary Evans ASIS FRPS was a talk, 'A Chemical Adventure in High Speed Photography'. This was a mixture of high speed photography, loud noises, big bangs and dangerous fun!. Not the usual club talk. 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. If you decide to join after 1st February our subscriptions for this club year are halved.
I have just reviewed my Christmas presents – on the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree. I got her socks!
A final thought - I have put on a lot of weight. I used to be 7lb 4ozs.
We wish you all a Happy New Year and can only hope the New Year brings us some better jokes.
