Looking through the lens
THE Warwick Camera group’s topic this month was “Moving Water”. The photos presented at the meeting had a variety of interpretations, from surf and waterfalls to water from a pump.
The winning image was taken by Kingsley Locke, and shows a curtain waterfall with a couple of people standing behind it. The inclusion of these two people is effective, as it shows the extreme overhang of the waterfall, which may not otherwise have been apparent.
Kingsley also claimed second place with a photo of some green water being pumped through a trough by a stationary engine (taken at the Allora Heritage Weekend). Steve Corbett came third with an aerial shot of the surf on Stradbroke Island.
Maureen Free won the open category, with a picture of St Mark’s framed through some trees. Second place went to June Kemp with a picture of the railway bridge over the Condamine and third was place was won by Kingsley.
The Print of Interest for August went to Neil Cordes with a close-up abstract view of some coloured glass from the museum at Eumundi.
Kingsley was having a good night, as his slide of a building fire in Warwick won the Slide of Interest section. This was taken quite a few years ago (check out the cars) but Kingsley can’t remember exactly when. The burning building was on the current site of the furniture shop, opposite the Holden dealership.
Second place was awarded to Merle Bamberry and third place to Bruce Kemp.
Members also viewed slides from Lake Eyre, Birdsville and Cooper Creek taken by the Kemps, images of Expo by Kingsley Locke and some historic Warwick buildings and Q150 celebrations by Merle Bamberry.
Club visitors Barbara and Arthur Maynard and Heather and Stuart Watt also showed a digital slide show of their trip to Japan.
