For many years Syd Cumbus has provided a brief review of the week’s meeting to the Lancaster Guardian for their Social Scene column. We’re now very happy to be able to also present these round ups on the website.
The Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union (L&CPU) portfolio of documentary and nature prints was presented to members by Vic Crumley and Christian Cable.
The L.&CPU represents all photographic societies within the two counties. Wigan 10 , Warrington, Chorley, Poulton-le-Fylde, Southport and Bolton provided some of the more spectacular images.
Part one consisted of 30 prints in both colour and monochrome with images of sport, portraiture, architectural interiors and cityscapes. Part two was mostly colour and offered superb images of natural history including – an eagle in flight, a kestrel in flight, fish, butterflies, insects, otters and turtles.
Each print was discussed by members and the general opinion was that the nature section had superior photographs.
