Maggie (and Pat) scoop local awards

As you may know, Maggie takes out a couple of kids who are interested in photography and because there are no Clubs for them to be able to get feedback on their photographs, she looks for local competitions as a way of encouragement and fun.

This year her granddaughter entered the Everton Village photo competition (judged by Club member Louis Rumis) and she came first in her age section and won a beautiful glass trophy.   Maggie also entered them and herself into the Bashley Village and Bransgore Horticultural shows which happened to be on the same day but was great fun rushing back and forward between the two.  They did very well in each competition and Maggie came away with a cup from both! (both were very badly tarnished but fun to receive). Pat won the mono competition

Maggie’s reason for entering these competitions is for fun and to encourage the kids to improve their photography skills by getting an independent comment from the judges.  They are now planning for next year and so far they have taken some cracking photos in Bournemouth Gardens of buskers, squirrels etc. 

Congratulations to Maggie and Pat. Here are some of Maggie’s winning images

Summer in Lymington Exhibition opens

LCC Exhibition opening with Major

Lymington Camera Club launched its annual exhibition at Lloyds Bank in Lymington High Street.

Club members voted on Summer in Lymington as the theme for this year’s project and the selected images were by William Bonett, Sue Baker, Elaine Adkins, Gillian Strange, Alan Keats, Mark Lanigan, Ken Clark & Dave Miller

Mark Lanigan, Chairman Lymington Camera Club said “This was a great opportunity for our members to record the glorious weather and the wide range of events that took place in Lymington this summer. The photographs we produced reflect our members’ different reactions to the events that took place from cars to crabbing and carnivals to live music.”

Lymington Camera Club would like to thank the Mayor, Cllr Anna Corbridge for opening the exhibition and Lloyds Bank for giving the Club the display space.
