Frodsham & District Photographic Society launch new season

LONG standing members mingled with the new on the opening evening of Frodsham & District Photographic Society – a Print of the Year Competition.

It was arranged and introduced by Miriam Manners. Different opinions were voiced and choices made before finally a conclusion was reached voting Ian Stanley’s ‘Once Seaworthy’ (shown here) to be the best of last season’s images.

The following week the first of the Club’s Speakers – Michael Kirkham – presented an enthralling evening of photographs from his portfolio. He is a Liverpool based photographer working extensively with a diverse portfolio.

On his website, www.michaelkirkhamphotography.co.uk you can view his work with Liverpool landscapes and street scenes. His passion for politics and the music scene in his city shines through.

His ongoing project is ‘Urban Goals’, documenting rudimentary goal posts set up by youngsters in our towns and cities. They evoke a strong feeling from childhood and tell a story about the change in Britain’s urban areas
(including under the Runcorn/Widnes Bridge). This has been picked up by the Liverpool Echo and mentioned on the BBC website. Members were lucky to be in at the beginning of what will certainly amount to an influential career.

Meanwhile member Lynda Haney has been out and about snapping some stunning Autumn scenes – including this stunning image of Castle Park in all its glory.
