In the Herald - We like to keep things moving

Over the last few weeks we have asked our members and friends on our Facebook group to send in photos on the themes of “motion” and “two wheels”.  Both challenges have prompted a wide range of interesting photographic interpretations.

Bicycles have of course featured heavily in the images that have been made.  It is great to see the different compositions and ideas that our creative photographers have managed to achieve.

As well as bikes, we have wheels on everything ranging from the Airbus Beluga cargo plane touching down at Prestwick Airport by Alan Kempster, to a trolley suitcase being rolled across a Glasgow’s Tradeston bridge by Tracy Ross.  Wind turbines draw wheels in the sky and wagon wheels have been used as window frames.

As the summer moves on we are continuing to set our weekly challenges and we are also meeting up every Wednesday evening for our popular photo walks at various local venues.  All of this activity is helping to keep our creative minds active and focussed on producing interesting photography.

It is also now looking good for a return to our clubrooms at Dreghorn Community Centre in September (if not before) for the start of the next camera season.  I am hoping all of this wonderful summer photography has whetted the appetite of our members the fantastic programme of events that we have planned. After a year of holding virtual meetings it will be great to get back to meeting in person and seeing our speakers and judges live instead of on a screen.  Of course, this is all very much dependant on how the opening up of society continues, but fingers crossed we will be able to get back to some much-needed normality very soon.

If you would like to learn more about Irvine Camera Club you are welcome to come along to any of our events and to take part on our Members and Friends Facebook group.  You can find out all about our club at our website
