U3A Photo Group One - 13 July 2022

by Tim Wright - 19:38 on 13 July 2022

At lunch time the weather looked poor with rain and low cloud, but by the time eight of us met in St Mary's the rain had stopped. The sun eventually made an appearance and the cloud dispersed too..we set off along the shore to the Loch.

Some went further along the shore looking for young terns and others tried out the new bird hide on the lochside. Others did the full lochside walk which is now well kept with excellent duck boards and plastic grating underfoot. A pair of swans and seven cygnets were the most eye catching of the waterfowl.

Others headed then back to the pier and took photos of the large graffiti that some vandal has painted on the stone wall below the old fishing house. Then it was off to the Sound Archives for some of us for tea cakes and perusal of photos.

"Yellow" was the project and seemed to hit a cord with everyone. Among the photos that we viewed were some very vibrant pictures from Canada from Hilary with an enormous yellow truck and trailer the most interesting. Jeanie had a rather obese subject with a large yellow plastic bag in his hand probably not full sensible diet foodstuffs. David had a very yellow GPO stone sign as well as a danger of electrocution sign as well. Steve had some excellent yellow plants with the colour picked out against a muted background.

Almost everyone had a yellow flower of some sort with myself and Barbara both having the same Turk's Head type Lilly flower head. Gillian too had yellow flowers.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 17th August meeting at Warbeth Cemetery to go down around the beach, probably in the afternoon but I will make a decision nearer the time depending on weather and if there is an internment planned.

The Project is "Ruins and Wrecks".

Keep clicking, Tim.
