ADAPS Year Book 2020-2021

7 Oct 2020 9:46AM   Views : 484 Unique : 327

Every year that Labour of Love we call the ADAPS Year Book occupies a couple of days of intense work, and it's always good to have it done, dusted and published. This time sround it was quite a task as everyone is locked down to some extent or another and not everyone keeps in touch via the internet. However, it's done now and 27 photographers sent in their pictures. I also added some group shots, showing various group visits over recent years. It's amazing how the society has changed, but also how a core membership is there right the way through. It's a renewing core membership of course, as one generation eventually gives way to the next.

The function of the book is twofold. If anyone wishes to, it can be bought via Blurb, but there's no profit involved so that isn't a motive for publication. Blurb books are not cheap, but they are good, and it means that an excellent record is made of who ADAPS members were year after year and what sorts of photography we enjoyed. All images are chosen on merit, but all contributers will be represnted whether they be new memberswho have just come through the door, or long term members who are almost welded to their chairs in the clubrooms.


PS Here's the breakdown of camera manufacturers used in the images, counting each image in the total:

Canon 28%
Nikon 27%
Mobile phones 15%
Pentax 14%
Fujifilm 10%
Sony 3%
Panasonic 2%

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

There is a road sign that says "Welcome to Historic Tyldesley" or something similar, and for a while we scratched our heads wondering what excatly was historic about Tyldesley. Well, slap on the hand for us, because there are plenty of things that w...

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
