Dates For Your Diary:

Monday 29th November – CD Group – Interclub competition with Musselburgh, Stirling and Kirkcaldy.    This is the annual 4 way match with the other clubs.  We were first equal last year so are hoping for better this year! 

Wednesday 1st December  – Valerie Jardin “Travel Photography : see beyond the Postcard and make your own iconic photographs”  Valérie is a visual storyteller recognized internationally for her street photography. The camera is an extension of her vision. It captures what she sees. Images help her tell the story of the light she chases in the urban landscapes she visits. Every time she makes an image, she captures a moment in time that will never occur again. Each frame becomes extraordinary in its uniqueness. The people. The architecture. The light. The shadows. When they come together, they form the stories of the cities that she wants to show.
