    Nice man, remember him well. About seven years ago bought a camera off him at Jessops. One of those moments remembered for no reason. Buying a Nikon for a gift to give a friend. Rob serving me when we had a chuckle. A mutual acquaintance had  claimed to be A.R.P.S. –to Rob, and we both knew to be wishful thinking.!!!

    Well Peter that is one beautiful set of photo”s. With due respect to everyone—for me they take the biscuit for May. Certainly amazing colours–but there is such a happiness about them. Lady with swans, looks like the Lake District? Superb “brolley ” shot and the colours in the final one are just magic, and of course –master of the angle shots. You so enjoy your photography Peter and give us all pleasure.

    One more fling before the months end. The plan was to create a colour wheel using W10–Paint—quarter of the way. Probably need a few more pixels.

    Must study this more later—Flor is great—–I think—maybe a good example we in clubs could see as an example of breaking away from the shackles we now practice in photo clubs. Perhaps work in small groups as Wigan 10 do. Thanks Ian—good stuff..

    Thanks Ian, safe links –that’s better still. Now did you know you can have a night light on screen in W10.  Settings—-System—Display and find what you need.   On/Off     switch— Hours to display –colour temp slider–cool if awake  or warmer to help sleep.

    Such a lovely photograph the first one. Almost void of colour and full of emotion.

    All very pleasing Peter. Yes red on green always works. Love  the old fashioned geranium  picture,, not to nit pick but think it worthy of little straighten up–but then I know you like to angle shots.The brollies always a good subject—the cyclist and shadow great.

    I find particularly admirable with this is the fact it has taken considerable photographic skill . The tapes are par for the course–perhaps airbrushing out a few in the foreground. The acid test –for me–is would the rider commend this -and no doubt she would. We see now in the digital era so many superb and exotic images that blow you away. But often requiring little skill, just sit and shoot. Focus-timing -exposure all well executed, as the rider is going at a fair pace.

    Well I would give acclaim to both Ian and John for their valued comments above which both worthy of wider publication. Its so interesting how an opening subject leads down another path. Canon”s objectives then onto club membership and this can be the joy of a forum. Regarding photo club membership–this is a subject which discussed all night  over  a case of lager–and not reach a conclusion. But never the less one that should not be ignored. My view regarding John”s last comment” Just come to one of our meetings and see what it is all about.”-I would not hesitate to suggest most would then walk away. L.C.P.U. has within its counties a population of multi millions- great institutions-massive industry–schools and hospitals. Yet photo clubs only attract a miniscule  drop in the ocean as members of our photo clubs. What is the psychic that induces millions to football- to photography- Flicker—Mc. Donalds- hols abroad—–yet—churches, sea side holiday lets—markets and photo clubs can attract all but a few ???? Will todays 15–to –20 year olds become members say ten years on, I would suggest most unlikely. There is the need for a radical change in the entire concept of club photography to bring it into the 21st century. That is if club photography is to survive and prosper. Within our own area we have thousands of people of high tech. ability -a massive hospital with doctors-nurses -medical technical staff etc, superb industries with highly skilled staff, executive and commercial people who of many will be grossly interested in photography. Yet as in most towns and cities, we attract all but a few. I would not venture to suggest what the answers are. But as one small example, I am aware  of young people I know who are as passionate about their activities as we are with photography. Getting beat at football is a demoralising disaster for them. Others –10 year olds in club gymnastics – underfunded clubs- coming home with superb medallions for an evenings competition.  Transpose those kids entering our competitions– the judge says 12 points for their photo they have been so proud to enter!!!! The other gets highly commended and next year is presented with a piece of paper to show off to his/her pals. I do not expect to be around in 15 years time- I would though hesitate to guess if photo clubs go first. Yet it could be so exciting being able to embrace  many more of those out there all ready interested in photography.

    What ever Canon does others will follow. There is an insatiable appetite still for photography–as can be seen by the millions of excellent photographs posted on Flicker as an example. The big companies will adjust to demand and bring some influence to the changes. If camera clubs are to survive, there is the need to embrace the changing trend. Camera clubs have been excellent at engaging major changes. Colour prints  unheard of in clubs in my time. 35mm to digital—digital printing. Etc. So a big challenge waits ahead and no doubt will be met. How long before new young people become members –with their Smart phone camera”s.??
