This last weekend I was one of the officials for my photo club's big international exhibition that we've held for 13 times before (so logically this was no. 14 ;-) ). I was the webmaster for the whole thing, so whenever something is related to the web or pretty much anything related to IT...it's my duty to get it done. It's okay, because it's fun to do (and rarely means any extraordinary amount of work).
Wait...I take that last bit back. Just before the deadline back in August, when everyone suddenly discovered that they had to send in their photos on the very same four or five days it got a bit busy for yours truly. But not the event this last weekend; that's where it's good to be part of a nine person board where everyone has done this kind of thing before. It just runs smooth!
We had a nice turnout and people seemed to appreciate the images we had on display, both on TV screens (for the accepted images in our two categories), large screen (for the awarded images) and in print (images from the six jury members and club members).
I didn't take all that many photos at the event since I tried to be social and a good "host", but I did snap a few, including of Tony Clementz, the winner in the monochrome section receiving his PSA Gold medal, deservedly so too I think.
With all these photographers running around it was probably inevitable that I ended up in a picture or two...which is nice...I guess, but I can't help feeling a bit awkward at being in front of a camera rather than behind it. Silly notion I know!
Now it's a few days of non-photography before Friday when the local Culture Night is on, and I get to show images at City Hall, along with my dad...something we both look forward to a lot! I'll be sure to write about that too once it's all over.
