On Friday evening I went to an exhibition of photographs. They were from members of my Fotoclub für Seniors – männlich/for men, which meets every second Wednesday afternoon. There is also a Fotoclub für Seniors -weiblich/for women.
I don’t know why there are two clubs. Some women told me it was because the women do not like how the men analyze and talk about photographs. This may be true for they can be very critical of each others work.
The German advert for our event read: Vernissage: Fr: 11.09. – 17 Uhr. Der Fotoclub präsentiert in einer Ausstellung zum Thema “Faszination Spiegelungen” einige Arbeiten. The theme was fascinating reflections. From one of the photos you can see this for yourself.
I was surprised at how many people turned up. A musician had been engaged to play soft music on a keyboard. Again you can see this in one photograph. There were snacks, water, white and red wine on offer. Nice, and the guests seemed to appreciate that for the bottles soon emptied!
I found the photographs looked better printed out in a frame rather than being blown up onto a large screen, which is how we see them in the club. A pleasant way to end the week and start the weekend.
