Re: Slice Group Display

GD6 - Light Play was hung today. We had eight contributors - Jim, Joe, Lisa, Michele, Colin, Rob, Richie and myself. Thank you - a very attractive display. I am not 100% sure I have attributed the images to the correct authors - was relying on memory at the time of hanging. Will recheck and correct ...

Re: Flower Market and Victorian Cemetery

Just a quick follow up to my note about new member Rob Price's exhibition at the Gosfield Shopping Village. I went there today and can recommend it as an enjoyable outing - not just for the exhibition, which is excellent, but for the collection of antique and craft shops there and good tearoom. The ...

A reminder that I shall be going to see Rob Price's exhibition at the Gosfield Shopping Village on Saturday, leaving Colchester at 3.30 - if anyone wants a lift?

Re: Re February Practical sessions

Thanks Michele. I may be wrong but my impression is that the area where buses park at Newbury Park station is not the car park. The car park is accessed down a road to the right immediately after the station main entrance (coming down the A12 from Colchester) i.e behind the station. I don't think bu...

Re: Re February Practical sessions

Regarding Sunday, does everyone know what you said Michele about parking at Redbridge rather than Newbury Park? Regarding the meeting this week, Rob Price, (not yet a member - but intending to join - so not yet on the forum) sent a message and some shots: Just a note to say I really enjoyed last nig...

Re: Slice Group Display

Renewed the Group Display this afternoon - GD5 Water Droplets. Didn't manage to get 10 different members contributing this time. There were just six of us - Trev, Colin, Joe, Jim, Richie and your truly, so four of us contributed an extra image each, to make an impressive and colourful display of 10 ...

I'd like to get this done by the end of this month, so could those of you who have water droplet shots please let me have them asap but by ...

Re: Slice Group Display - GD5

Another sale - Lisa sold one recently - but not from her own display. It was her macro shot of the cogs inside a watch from the current GD4 - so a first! Well done Lisa. Of course the gap had to be filled asap so i reprinted the watch image and by dint of careful scraping with a sharp blade even man...

Re: Slice sale

Another sale! Jim sold one of his photos yesterday. Well done Jim. Will you be able to replace it soonish? If not I'll try to put up a little notice to say 'soon to be replaced' just to fill the empty space.

Joe - I noticed your four images are all anonymous. Shall I add the missing name?

Re: Slice Group Display

Looked in at Slice today and Lagi pointed out some slight damage to a couple of our Group Display exhibits. It appears that the air conditioning unit which sits just above the GD went into overtime during the exceptionally hot weather we had a little while back and as a result it spewed out some sor...

Re: Slice Group Display

Looking ahead to GD5 (due to materialise around the end of the year), we recently decided on 'Abstract' as the theme. However, unlike Theresa May, I am inviting you to have second thoughts. As with the recent oil on water theme It is great when the theme for the GD follows on from a theme we have al...
