A group of club members greatly enjoyed the outing to Loxley Colour on Friday 24th March. After a fascinating tour of the huge, impressively organised photo lab we had a good Italian lunch and then, for those with a little more time to spare, a visit to Cumbernauld House Park and glen. Many thanks to Annette Forsyth for suggesting and organising the trip so well. It was a grand day out.
Last night was the AGM of our parent body the Perthshire Society of Natural Science. It was followed by a thought-provoking lecture by Erik MacEachern of SEPA and the whole event was so well attended we needed extra chairs. The news is that we now have another member of the Photographic Society elected to the PSNS Council. Malcolm Lind will be joining me and Tom Ryan who of course remains PSNS president. Tom told us all about next year’s excellent Curious Minds lecture series and plans for marking the 150th anniversary of PSNS this autumn.
The big event is a Conversation with Dame Evelyn Glennie in Perth Concert Hall on October 4th. There will be an exhibition in the Museum in September/October curated by CPK and the Photographic Society will also be holding an exhibition at number 2 High St, the newly refurbished Perth Council headquarters. More details on this to follow.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 15th March and Roben Antoniewicz will be presenting.
