Photo Group One - 1 March 2017

by Tim Wright - 16:51 on 01 March 2017

Thirteen of us met for lunch at the Waterside Cafe in Finstown today and an excellent and promptly served lunch it was too. Earlier, after meeting at the car park in Finstown, most of us went up Heddle Hill for the views before the snow all melted. Lots of interesting shots of the Moto Cross course and the modern Standing Stones at the lay bye. Then, a wander around the gardens at the back of the church where lots of snow drops were out as well as some primroses. Jocky, the gardner, was planting trees that will be for the next generation to ultimately admire. A quick dash to the Ouse for more pictures before the hail made a start and obscured what had been a very sunny morning. 

"Spirals" was the project for the month. There was a very good selection despite some complaints at the time of setting the subject. Pat contributed too, although she was not present, as she had made the project suggestion. Surprising there were no cork screws but lots of Fuselli, cooked and uncooked, drill bits, sculptures and wrought iron work and various bits of Christmas and other similar twirly decorations. However, the most impressive were the spiral staircases. The one of the Reich-stag and all its glass was just piped by the Vatican staircase with lots of people on heading down into the depths, perhaps the Road to Hell? Thanks to all for the excellent and varied offerings.

The next meeting is at the Deerness Gloup on 29th March at 10.30 am followed by lunch at the Sands Hotel. The project is "Yellow".

Keep Clicking, Tim
