“15 minutes of fame”

Happy New Year everyone!  At the quiz night I mentioned that our second meeting of the new year was entitled, “15 minutes of fame”.  It’s an opportunity to show us some of your images (or videos), explain the inspiration behind them and perhaps get a bit of feedback from your fellow members.  Should be a good night!  If you have any prints or files you would like to share then could you please bring them next Monday (5th).  Many thanks.

ps:  or you could email files to me at the this email address but please remember to resize your images as you would for any of our competitions.  Ta.
