We were pleased to welcome two new joiners in June which brings the membership up to 40.
Our first meeting in June was a fun evening when members used glow wands to create abstract patterns. Thanks go to Peter Seath for organising the evening. A couple of photographs from that evening are shown below. Each of the patterns was made by one person waving just one glow wand.
On 21 June, we held our monthly competition evening when the set subject was “Circles”. Len Glasser was the judge for the evening. We are always pleased to see Len who invariably presents interesting talks as well as judging the competition entries. This time he showed us the principles of Camera Obscura and had made up three such cameras from cardboard boxes which the members tried out.
The competition results were as follows:
