Ralph Browes Tannery Row is a wittily titled monochrome print which won its section in our last print competition. We were pointing out last week that, despite many many more pictures being taken now relatively few are printed. Of course keeping them electronically is so convenient, so cheap, who can blame anyone for doing that. We still enjoy the creation of a print. it was always the mainstay of club photography and a craft that many of us practise still, there were over 70 entries in that competition.
We had some good news this week – reported below. The Great British Cup, as the name implies, is a national competition and, we came 6th.
