THE TUESDAY EVENING SHOOT
Members walked along the River Tweed from Chainbridge to Paxton hoping to see otters or other wildlife but to no avail, though there were plenty of cows in the meadow and swallows catching fish on the river! As you can see it was a beautiful evening and it was a lovely walk.
The select few were
Clive, Alan, Derek, Maggie and Kenny.
Only a few members braved the inclement weather for the July photoshoot, which was held on the bank of the Tweed near West Ord; however, it did give a potential new club member a chance to meet the Chairman and to see what happened at a photoshoot.
The new recruit was 2 year old Alfie who came as the guest of his uncle, Clive McGuinness, and who had brought his own camera to record the occasion.
By all accounts Alfie intends to be a professional photographer when he grows up.

THE TUESDAY EVENING SHOOT
A visit to Eyemouth Harbour
Members who visited Eyemouth Harbour were rewarded with brilliant sunshine and sparkling water.
The strong slanting light provided interesting conditions in which to take pictures.
Apart from the many colourful boats there was a lot to be seen including lifeboats putting to sea, a cutter being rowed vigerously by a group of senior citizens, one friendly seal even got a good look at our club secretary.
Pictures featuring Salmon Fishing on the Tweed by the Club's president,
Jame Walker FRPS were given a given pride of place in an exhibition at one of the 'Berwick 900 Festival' projects.
"Berwick's Fishing, Seaside and Maritime Story" was a suberb venture .
The display which showcased a wealth of talent and craftmanship was at the Berwick Watch Tower Gallery, West End, Tweedmouth.
