This week Steven Beard, Kevin Johnson and Gavin Marshall showed the photographs they had taken in the past year. Steven showed photographs he had taken on walks around Prestonpans during lockdown, revealing the hidden details you don’t normally see unless you have the opportunity to stay and look closely. Kevin also showed some lockdown images from Musselburgh and some pre-lockdown photographs of Glasgow and Amsterdam. Gavin Marshall shared the night shots he had taken on a rallying trip to the Isle of Mull and shots of Jodrell Bank telescope and Lindisfarne. Here are some links with more information on the subjects featured in the photographs:
- About East Lothian: A link to many of the historical monuments, buildings and artwork around Prestonpans.
- East Lothian Courier article on the miners memorial sculpture in Prestonpans
- Prestonpans Historical Society article on the green woman sculpture by Andy Scott in Prestonpans
- Prestoungrange guide to the Prestonpans Murals Trail.
- Jodrell Bank telescope
It is time to start planning another socially distanced photoshoot. We have our next photoshoot roundup planned for 19th November 2020. It was suggested that Flanders Moss Nature Reserve would make a great location for landscape and wildlife photography. However, with the expected travel restrictions we will have to save that trip for another day and try something closer to home. 😦 We decided to go for Calton Hill and places in the east of Edinburgh. If you have the opportunity to visit Edinburgh in the next 3 weeks, capture some pictures to bring along. If travel restrictions prevent you from travelling to Edinburgh, take some local photographs with an Edinburgh theme, or find some Edinburgh photographs in your collection. I look forward to seeing what you bring along on 19th November.
In the meantime, we have a recorded lecture and colour print competition coming up…
