Tonight some of the club members met for a Christmas get together to view members photo files from their 2012 season, a well as consuming  some fine food supplied by the members. 

The location 'The Valentia Life Boat Station Crew Room' was kindly arranged by Richard Foran who also dished out tea and coffee, and had set up his projection screen in readiness. Our trusty professional Michael Herrmann, supplied his projector, and the members their memory sticks.

 Unfortunately some of the members had to call off sick, so were unable to attend, and we all wish them a speedy recovery, and for those that couldn't make the evening, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

The following photo shows some of the members that attended, although three other member who were there earlier in the evening had to leave early to attend other engagements.

The motley crew!

Really enjoyed my first Portrait session with the Camera club, but our two beautiful models Alanna and Katelyn made shooting a bit easier. All taken with Canon 500D.
