Many congratulations to the winners in our photographic competition and thank you for taking the time to enter – we’ll post those images on here soon.
A big thank you in particular to those who brought us their images on the day itself…. we had a stream of amateur photographers of all abilities dropping by to share their photos depicting what they enjoyed about the show. There was a huge range and breadth of photos brought to us, and it’s great to be able to share some of them with you here. Continue reading
Not everything is black and white
This month’s theme was really more of an exercise with an open discussion, so there is no Image of the Month for May. Instead I would like to share questions that were put to the group for debate, after they were asked to submit the same photograph in both colour and black and white.

Twelve Months – Twelve Dates – Twelve Locations
June 17th – National Memorial Arboretum Alrewas
Time 10.00am – 2pm
Cost The Image Club will not be making a charge for this event. A collection will be made on the day, with all monies donated to the National Memorial Arboretum. Car parking charges apply (£3 maximum).
Please join me on a truly spiritual and uplifting stroll around this very special Centre of Remembrance.
All the trees and flowers within the 150 acre landscape are relevant to the many sculptures and memorials we will come across, as we wander the carefully tended pathways in this most beautiful and tranquil of settings.
So many stories are shared here that every visit is memorable, and while we will learn together, we will also be taking some time on our own to reflect.
Photography is encouraged through the NMA Friends Photography Competition which is currently open for 2012 submissions.
Photojournalist Alison Baskerville will also be exhibiting with a collection of her photographs depicting life in Afghanistan for our service personnel.
