The expression on the face of the lady on the left of V.1 is classic! Super candids, Moira, looks like a case of 'daren't leave the room otherwise I'll be talked about'! Carol

Thanks to the early birds (the loss of an hour this morning was a horrible shock to my system...). These pictures include some of my favourite subjects, all wonderful people.

Dougie, you're closer than you might imagine... A very tricky tactical matter was under discussion.
Anne, I don't have enough time either, which is awkward as I'm on the committee and a group convenor!
These had to be b&w, the background in V1 in particular, and also V3, was just too dominating in colour

Lovely candid shots - many an ordinary moment can become extraordinary when frozen in time like this. V1 is priceless Smile

With all that facial hair Moira,the guy must be worth a pic on his own.Never seen so much hair since that old burst mattress down at the waterfront a couple of months ago !! More well observed candids from you.

What a pleasure to be number 30 today Moira, these images are "the business", as they say! Excellently captured, the mono adds to the overall "gossipiness" - V1 is the winner, but the other two are almost as good! Well spotted and captured.

This is so funny. I read the title and saw the first image and thought, "Yeah...I wonder how many times that's gonna be repeated"...and then I saw Vs 2 and 3 and the light shone Smile

EXcellent photojournalism, Moira.

The chap with the beard has just joined up, and is giving a talk in a few months on the decoding of the Enigma machine. I think I will have future opportunities...
