It was Paul’s idea – so we blame him. But it was a great challenge that four members participated in during 2018 – Paul, Anjalika, Denise and Marny.
We had a list of the images that were to be produced each week during the year. That was the first challenge, producing something every week – sometimes during cold and snow, other times when people were busy. So there were some weeks that weren’t done exactly at the time – but in general, we all tried to create the required image at the right time.
We showed some of our images to the club on Tuesday. Probably few good images, but it was agreed that we had all learnt a lot during the year, even if it was learning that some things needed more time to learn about and more determination to keep trying. There are definite plans for the future to try these new techniques again, perhaps with more time to learn. Suspect a lot of ‘youtube’ videos were watched during the year – and more to come.
Some of the weekly descriptions were a bit difficult to understand; all agreed the worst was Week 49 – category ‘Vision’ and challenge ‘Looking Back’. The description given was ‘If you were Captain Ahab, which skill would be your whale?’ I’ll leave you to ponder on that one.
But we enjoyed taking part. Paul plans to do again next year, Denise and Marny are considering repeating this year.
