Newsletter #50 26/2/2021

Hi Everyone

A big WELCOME to this 50th Edition of your Newsletter and a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed previously to editing and writing articles. We always welcome any contributions and hope you can put finger to keyboard sometime soon !

Coming up very soon on the 6th and 7th March is The Photography Show which once again is going to be a virtual show. Having been to the show many times it’s a real shame that it can’t be held for real, but the good news is that anyone can partake of the amazing variety of talks and product demos and if you wish to see what it’s all about the (safe) link is here:https://www.photographyshow.com/welcome#/

NB Mark Walker is still waiting for the link to his Zoom talk for Interfit and I will forward it separately to you.

Thought I’d include a “Photo from the Vault” to remind us of happy times past !

Finally a short message from Paul regarding our Website Hi All


Our website has a top limit of 100 pages. We have now completed 21 lockdown competitions and we have to find a way to save some pages. To do this the first 10 competitions are now archived into one page Lockdown2. That has allowed us to delete 10 pages from our lockdown competitions page. Hover over any of the 142 images (or double-click them for full screen) to see the owner and winners.

All the best Paul
