Alnwick and District Camera Club

Alnwick and District Camera Club’s first members night of the season featured What I did this Summer, in which everyone was invited to bring along pictures that they had taken over the summer months and to talk about them.

The event proved so popular, with more than 20 members contributing pictures, that a few had to be held over for another evening.

The range and quality was exceptionally high. There was good coverage of the Golden Jubilee and the Olympic Games as well as local highlights such as the Festival of Alnwick, Alnwick Music Festival and Glendale Show.

Most people seem to have spent their summer holidays in the British Isles, although there were some fine pictures with interesting stories from Bavaria and Nova Scotia.

The evening was completed by a fine print gallery from Geoffrey Bradford and Micheal Mundy.

Geoffrey’s unusual and involving exhibit featured photographs of items associated with his late father, taken as part of a degree course social documentary assignment. Micheal’s superb quality monochrome prints of people pictures and miscellaneous items from Chillingham Castle also captured some memorable images.
