I spent the morning in Stratford, helping to steward Stratford Photo Group’s annual summer exhibition, which is held in the building that used to be called the Civic Hall, and is now known as the ArtsHouse. It’s a good show, I think: around 100 mounted prints covering a range of genres and standards, but showing that overall the club is working to a pretty high standard. R came in at lunch time and viewed it before taking me off out for lunch, and professed himself to be impressed – though I noted that he didn’t enter the draw to win a print!
I had a camera with me, with the intention of taking a general shot of the exhibition for today’s blip, but I was so busy chatting with the club Chairman, who was stewarding with me this morning, that I completely forgot. So back at home I had another go at taking a selective-focus flower image – a genre I always enjoy when I see other people’s work, but rarely when I try it myself. I’m cautiously, slightly satisfied with this, though – probably because it’s not very selective.
