Sunday 28th September
According to our secretary, Maggie Jary,
"There was more than enough material to fill the evening. In the end we had some very interesting and varied slideshows from eight members.
These were: Paul, Clive, Michael, Martin, Andrew, Pam, Maurice and myself. (I hope I haven't forgotten anybody!). Pam and Maurice are new members "
Tuesday 23rd September Show & Tell Evening
We had a good turn out for the Sunday shoot on Holy Island on the 28th of September
There were two more members who are not on the group photo - Maurice McNeely and Peter Carr. The island was very busy with the annual Leukaemia and Lymphoma Forget Me Not Walk but perhaps this gave members an opportunity to get some different shots.
The judging for these images will be on the 11th November by Colin Smurthwaite.
A most entertaining and informative speaker, Mark Davey was welcomed back to the club to give a talk on lenses.
From Fish eye to Zoom he covered the lot and gave us a fascinating insight into his work on as a reporter and photograper on a borders newspaper.

Tuesday 28th October 'Match an Image' Competition
The 'Match an Image' competition which was judged by Derek Smee turned into a really entertaining event as it reached its climax.
Some 40 pictures were put up by two teams of club members called the 'reds' and the 'winners'
As it turned out the Winners didn't win, they scored 50 points while the 'red' tem were victorious with a total of 56. It was certainly good practice for when the club does battlle in a 'Match an Image' competion against North Berwick Camera Club on February 10th...

'Around the world in 60 minutes'
Members who braved the wet and stormy night to enjoy the illustrated talk given by Oliver Eade were rewarded by a fascinating account of his many trips abroad.
He gave an insight into ' street photography' with images that showed how to catch the moment, make use of backgrounds and in some cases successfully discard any idea of rules in composition
The Sunday Shoot
Tuesday 11th November 2014
A one man band provided a splash of colour in an otherwise gloomy day on Holy Island.
It was captured in this picture by John Tully which was placed first by Colin Smurthwaie when he judged the Sunday Shoot competition.
The second and third place went to Daryn Ritchie while Peter Carr gained a 'Highly Commended'
Margaret 'Up above down under'
Sparkling bright sunshine leapt out at us from the screen when we viewed the inflight movie taken of Margaret Johnson. She made a sponsored freefall jump at Jurian Bay just north of Perth in Australia..
It was exciting to watch and interesting to see the cameras in action, one used by a photographer free falling close by and the other strapped to the wrist of her tandem partner.
Margaret is raising money for a local charity, Berwick & District Friends of Dementia.
In a 'Members' Evening' the subject was 'A year in the life of...'
Projected presentations were made by Maggie Jary, Ian Cartwright,
Allan Rogers, Martin Mears,
