Putney Group February 2017 Meeting Update

Good to see you all for our February meeting that by common consent turned out to be one of our best to date, largely down to Bill’s brilliant idea for a theme!

Our meeting started out with my customary run through of some recent award winning pictures: BuzzFeed’s 40 of the Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken; 50 National Geographic Photos; and BBC’s Week in pictures: 11-17 February 2017. And a rather good video about how best to enter competitions – well worth a look.

We then struck gold with our monthly theme – everyone was asked to bring along a favourite picture from anyone, from any era and explain why they loved it so and how/why it might have inspired them. No one disappointed – please take a look at the selections – Henri Cartier-Bresson was the clear winner on the night, with several mentions.

Our next meeting is set for the evening of 20th March. Our theme will be ‘A Moment in Time’ in Black and White.

All the best – AW
