Yesterday's Club Meeting

Yesterday's meeting was very well attended. We started off showing sunset and sunrise pictures members took all over the world and let me tell you we saw some wonderful shots. There are some talented photographers amongst us.
A large group attended yesterday's meeting
This was followed by s showing of travel videos and slide shows, again by members of the club and the same can be said, we saw some great videos.

And finally, Noeleen demonstrated a few ways of creating a photo book. Photo books are becoming a very popular way of collecting photographs. The photos are printed and the result is that they will last longer.
