Berwick Photographic Society meets in the Abbey Church Hall
in Church Road, North Berwick, East Lothian. Meetings
are every second Thursday from September to April. We also have
a varied range of club outings from May to September.
Adventure in the Balkans", a talk by club member Ian
Goodall, told the story, through over 400 photos, of Ian
and his wife Sheila's adventure last summer by rail through the
Balkans. With their 30-day interrail ticket and the help of Booking.com
to reserve accommodation in advance they visited every Balkan
country apart from Kosovo and Albania. Highlights included the
new (relaunched) sleeper train to Istanbul (destination of the
original Orient Express the route of which they followed), the
railway journey through Montenegro and the rebuilt bridge in
Mostar. Only 'low' moment was Ian being robbed on the metro in
our fourth meeting we invited Midlothian Camera Club to
a match-an-image. Judge Stephen Lipton gave North Berwick the
result we deserved, making amends for our narrow defeat last
year. Away for our annual Haddington Camera Club meeting,
we had a 20-images-each competition on the subject of "Water",
judged by Charles Summers. For the second time in a week we enjoyed
a victory against an external club.
we visited Beeslack Penicuik Camera Club for a Match-an-Image
competition which North Berwick won by 1 point.
