Pan & Tilt
a change in the dating for Pan & Tilt. From now the ‘Headed Date’ will refer to the activities of that month.
3rd July 2016
Run and Dye at Penshurst
This was an outing with a difference, the essence being a family day where people can take part in a 5km run, whilst at the same time partake and be showered with coloured dust as in the Indian Holi festival. There was a very happy atmosphere to the event with a fair number of club photographers present, but sadly not many from West Wickham this time.
Prior to the start everybody got into the spirit of day showering each other, this was highlighted by the majority having dressed in white or very light clothes. Once the multi-coloured runners had started they were met at various points around the course with showers of colour from marshals armed with leaf blowers loaded with even more colour powder.
In retrospect this was an event that was worth attending, but probably as an individual rather than as a group, as it was spread over quite a large area.

Morris Dancing at the Greyhound Pub, Keston
On a very pleasant evening eight members met to possibly partake in some photography and enjoy the hostelry. Three of the club members came attired in their ‘Photo24” t-shirts earned for finishing London 24hr photo shoot in June. Sitting outside the members were entertained by the Ravensbourne Morris Men and there varied dances. A splendid way to spend an evening.
Tues 19th July
The Change of Horses, Farnborough Village
On what had been the warmest day so far this year, twelve members met up in the attractive gardens (Along with a quite few others) to spend the evening chatting and trying to cool down. It must be said that very little photography occurred this night as everyone enjoyed the time to just relax.
