Flash fills can be useful but not when they are of the weather variety as Smethwick Photo Society found out when they hosted tonight’s Photofolio awards tonight. In an hours sudden downpour up to a foot of water flooded the Old School House and grounds just prior to the meeting which left camera club member stranded in the street wondering whether the the night would be cancelled.
But in true British Spirit of the show must go on the awards were handed out in the bar area to the people that remained and made it through the terrible motorway traffic.
Cannock CPS won the Trans-Atlantic challenge 541 to CCB 490
Paul Hassell has won Gold at the Abla Open with his image ‘Determination‘ following that up with commended for ‘Dedication’ and ‘The Player‘, in total he received 8 acceptances.
The sad news that Kim Bowen MPAGB one of the judges at The Robin Hood Open passed away suddenly just after the judging day.
Kim along with her husband Dave who gave CPS a talk last season were long term friends of Cannock and attended the Staffs battles on many occasions over the years. Kim will be sadly missed by the greater photographic family, and our sympathy goes out to Dave and her family.
