Last Week’s Meeting
Our Press Officer, Syd Cumbus writes a regular piece for the Lancaster Guardian’s social scene column and we’re pleased to be able to offer these recaps on the website too.
Sally Anderson, President of the Society presented the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union Monochrome Portfolio which had been selected from the higher scoring images in the annual exhibition of 2012 and from images which represented the L&C P U in the 2011 PAGB federation print competition. Clubs taking part include all affiliated societies within Lancashire, Cheshire and the Isle of Man. Adjudicators for the 2012 Annual Competition were:-
- Malcolm Kus ARPS
- Tony Wharton FRPS
- Peter McCloskey FRPS
For the first part of the evening 39 prints were shown and members allowed to comment on the presented images. For the second part of the evening groups of three members judged the remaining prints in the manner of the official judges, having just 15 seconds to view each photograph and marking it out of 5. The members results agreed mostly with the official deliberations.
An interesting evening where members could learn from viewing exhibition photographs. The next meeting on October 31st will be the first competition of the winter season.
As October draws to a close and the days become dark and cold we’ve started to think about Christmas. This year the Christmas meal will be held at The Mill at Conder Green on Wednesday 19th December. If you are interested in attending then Sally will be collecting deposits of £5 per head in the meeting. Members are free to bring their partners. To whet your appetite you can view their Christmas Menu.

The Dukes has organised an illuminated walk along Lancaster Canal on the evenings of Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th of October.
These walks feature a series of beautiful audio and visual displays and are sure to be of photographic interest. The route is the stretch of canal between Moor Lane and the Water Witch. More information about the walks can be found at the Dukes website.
