IT WAS A KNOCK OUT
It was a 'Club Night' and members added five images each to a pile which was divided. Votes were cast as the photographs were displayed two at a time and the loosing ones discarded. The process was repeated until all but one had been knocked out.
The winning picture was by Colin Smurthwaite and the runners up were Michael Barron and Barbara Bogacka
On the 9th of October the club considered the distinctions awarded by the Royal Photographic Society; namely Licentiate and Associate. Michael Barron and Maggie Jary, both Associate members of the RPS, and Barbara Bogacka, who is a Licentiate member, will talked about the processes involved, and presented the images they used.

The club secretary received this message from Sandra Briggs
I hope you don’t mind me contacting you. I just wondered if any of your camera club members may be interested.
My daughter was left a large camera by a friend, which she has to sell as she has insufficient space for it.
The body of the camera is SINAR ref 39562 Swiss made.
The camera large format says DBP West Germany 2121498.
LINHOF 9x2 4x5 with Polaroid back.
It has 2 Lens which are Schneider-Kreuznach. Both made in Germany.
Lens 1 Super Angulon 5’9 multicoating ref 14409389 (approx 55 in die).
Lens 2 RPO - Symmar 5.6/150 multicoating.
It comes in two large metal cases.
If anybody was interested in purchasing it I am attaching some photographs.
My daughter would want a very reasonable offer as it was a very expensive camera.
It is suggested if anyone is interested, they contact this Sandra Briggs direct.
