If anyone reading this lives in Surrey and happens to have noticed lots of people with cameras in the villages of Outwood, Lingfield, Godstone, Tandridge, Horne and Crowhurst, it is quite likely that they were from the Reigate Photogaphic Society and taking part in the annual club treasure hunt.
Our task is to photograph memorials, Royal commemorations, Ancient yews and architecture pre-1800 and anything else that takes our fancy in the areas mentioned. My first problem is recognising pre-1800 architecture unless it is REALLY old and recognising a yew from all the other trees
Rather like the world wide photo walk and other group photography event, however, this is a great idea as it gives us all something to talk about and compare notes. It also gives us a theme or two to work to, which I always feel is better than just wandering about snapping everything that we like the look of.
The new season begins in earnest in September and I can’t wait to see what new gems come to light when we all get together again. And here’s my first picture of an ancient ewe – sorry.
