Recently, we were really proud to have been asked to supply photographs for Anam Cara, a specialist dementia respite centre in Kilbirnie which has just re-opened to guests.  Following on from last week, this week we are looking at more of the images that are currently being shown at the respite.

It is hoped that it will help them to recall happy memories of familiar places and create talking points for staff and guests alike.  The images were well received by visitors and have been generating much discussion which is great to hear.  It is proof that photography can be a powerful medium when used in the right way and reminds us that it is not just about taking nice images, sometimes they can change or enhance the lives of those who get to see them.

Irvine Camera Club have just started a Summer season of weekly photo walks.  Why not come along and learn about your camera whilst visiting some of the stunning landscapes and places of interest and make a few new friends along the way.


If you would like to come along and see what we are up to then please take a look at our website and get in touch as every week we are somewhere different over the summer months:
