Cam­era Club There was a packed house at last Fri­day’s meet­ing of Car­luke Cam­era Club. Guest speaker was Mike Sharples, from Smeth­wick Pho­to­graphic So­ci­ety, one of the largest and most suc­cess­ful clubs in Eng­land. Mike is well known for his work which has earned him many dis­tinc­tions. It en­com­passed a wide va­ri­ety of sub­jects, such as land­scapes, por­traits and sport. Fri­day’s meet­ing was also at­tended by a large number of vis­i­tors from other lo­cal cam­era clubs to hear his talk. Satur­day and Sun­day were oc­cu­pied by the club’s an­nual au­tumn out­ing which, this year, went to the Lake Dis­trict. Mem­bers who par­tic­i­pated will dis­play their work at a fu­ture club meet­ing. There was no mem­bers’ work­shop on Mon­day of this week. This week’s meet­ing will be an in-house evening, hosted by club vice-pres­i­dent, Libby Smith at 7.30pm on Fri­day in St An­drews Church hall in Mount Ste­wart Street. Vis­i­tors and new mem­bers, in­clud­ing be­gin­ners, are most wel­come. Visit the club’s web­site at­luke-cc. de­tails on any of the above.
