This week I gave the second, and last, presentation of my photographs as President of YPS. It has been a really enjoyable two years and I have been privileged to be President of such a talented group of photographers. It didn’t take me long to decide upon the topics I wanted to show but actually selecting the photographs and putting them into an order that told a logical story took considerably longer.
I have just returned from a week’s holiday in Northumberland and as usual I spent my days entirely on the coast. As the week progressed the weather deteriorated but once I was togged up in my waterproofs I still ventured forth onto the beach so that I could watch the waves breaking offshore and on the sand.
As the current President of York Photographic Society I have one evening scheduled for me to give a presentation. Whilst I have given short talks about my photography I've never spoken for an hour and a half about my 'work'.
As President of York Photographic Society I am scheduled to give a presentation of my work to the membership. I decided to base my evening on 'Yorkshire' and 'coastal Photography' and I have been chipping away at the content for a while.
Someone told me about the lovely Roker Pier which features a long curve and as I want to show some piers and lighthouses in my presentation I drove up to Wearside.
