Please make a note of the following outings, organised by Paddy:
‘OLD CARS’ (Wijnland Auto Museum) next to the Cape Garden Centre on the N1 on the way to Paarl – take Exit 34. Meet there at 9.30 am on Saturday 27th February. R50 entrance fee payable at the museum. This is an ideal opportunity to do abstracts, graphics (set subject), macro. Bring bottled water – it tends to get hot!
RALLY : Saturday 13th March meet at 9.30am in the parking area of the Afrikaans Taal Museum in Paarl. Directions: once you turn off to enter Paarl (the Main Road exit) from the N1 (60kmh!), take care in looking for a road to the left (not really well signposted) which weaves through a residential area before getting to the parking area. The rally takes the form of ‘clues’ which you have to photograph … in the good old days of slides we were allowed to make only one shot of the subject … these days, a digital camera allows you to surreptiously delete an image which you think is not successful, and take another one! But you are earnestly requested to not do this! There is a possibility of particpants receiving a free ‘throw-away’ camera (with film!) which JJ will process – thereby allowing only one shot per subject! You will be kept informed!
CAPE TOWN FESTIVAL/CARNIVAL takes place over the weekend of 20th March. We plan to meet at the Adderley Street entrance to the Company Gardens, between St. George’s Cathedral and the Cultural History Museum, at 2.30pm, on Saturday 20th March. Remember one of our set subjects is ‘Carnival’.
Please diarise these dates! See you there!
