THE FOCUS will be on Leamington Spa Photographic Society’s Annual Exhibition from this weekend.
The exhibition, at the town’s All Saints Church from May 7 to 15, will see 170 photographic prints and digital images on display.
And members have found inspiration close to home as these pictures from Leamington and Kenilworth show.
This year’s entries were judged by David Lowe, former chairman of The London Salon of Photography.
Claire Doolan continued her winning streak, this time in the Portrait Class, and Oddie Evans won the Club Print class with Warp Speed.
David Rapley’s USS Destroyer Dry Dock won the Club Digital class. Tony Aiello’s picture of Clemens Street secured the Local Scenes Trophy while the Colour Cup was won by Yvonne Shillington, and Rudbeckia and Mike Calvert’s Stonehenge At Night won the Digital Colour Trophy.
John Tickner’s picture of The Freedom Tower scooped the Monochrome Trophy and Richard Earp’s Mountain Road won the recently introduced Landscape Trophy. Hiding by Rob Musgrove took the Natural History Print Trophy with Richard Dunn’s Marsh Harrier winning the Digital section.
The opening of the exhibition coincides with World Labyrinth Day on Saturday, when All Saints also hosts day-long events to promote mindfulness and wellbeing.
Society chairman Tim Evans said: “Despite Covid continuing to affect our programme, events have been well attended either physically or on-line. Members have begun to travel more which has resulted in a broader range of images.
“Again, we owe our committee a big thank you, especially the IT and Programme Teams who worked so hard to make things happen, sometimes at short notice.”
The free exhibition runs daily from 10.30am to 5.30pm and on Sundays from 12.30pm to 5pm.
