17 January 2019 (Quiz Evening)

This week club members divided themselves into 4 teams and spent an enjoyable evening answering some fiendishly tricky questions posed by Ken Sharp. We started the evening identifying various statues located in the Edinburgh New Town. (Ken explained the history of the statues when he revealed the answers.) We then we moved on to identifying the settings used to take a collection of images of the same scene. The second half of the quiz involved questions on the history of photography and matching images to the famous photographers who took them. Finally, Ken had a reply to the “Which manufacturer makes the best camera?” question posed last year by Jim Tod. Ken’s question was “What is the best camera?” to which the answer is, “Whatever camera you have with you”. Ken explained that being ready to capture an image is the important thing, so having any camera is better than no camera at all.

The competition was won by the “Right back 4” team, with Liz Sowler, Malcolm and Lorraine Roberts and me. Thank you very much to Ken for entertaining us.
