28th January THE PANEL COMPETITION
It was originally billed as 'Venice and its Carnival' a Slideshow and talk by Michael Barron" but as Michael was sick it was his wife, Tara who handled the presentation. She gave us a great deal of information that added to our appreciation of the colourful event.
It is popular and each February attracts visitors from many countries. They dress up in wondorful costumes and wear masks.
4th February VENICE THROUGH THE LENS OF MICHAEL BARRON
The history of the masks goes back to the 18th Centuary when Venice was the "party capital" of europe and those who took part in the continuous debauchery wore them to hide their identity.
It was eventually banned, but forty years ago brought back to life as a carnival to encourage tourism.
Visitors can either bring their own costumes or hire them at the hotels to wear at the Balls or pose in against the glorious background of Venice.
The city has changed little since the days when it was painted by Canalleto as we saw when his images were projeted along with Michaels'.
These images by Peter Carr,
Michael Barron and Clive McGuinness were among the forty that were projected in a knock out competion at the North Berwick Camera Club. It was a match and be judged situation, with only 30 seconds in which our nimble projectionists had to make a suitable selection.
It was a good evening with much happy banter.
In the end we came a close second
