About Swales Parry
My website hasn't been updated as much as it should have been lately. I apologise for that. I'm now going to try and redress this.
I'm fully established in my new home which is 60 plus miles from Tonbridge. That can be a 2 hr. journey in the early evening traffic but after a meeting the return trip can be as little as 1¼ hrs. I moved to Surrey to avoid the long journeys on the M25 to see my family, so to make a weekly trip to attend my favourite photographic club would negate the reason for moving. But there is a compromise. At the last TCC AGM a new "Country Membership' was approved and I meet the criteria. That means I will still be able to participate and keep in touch with the members and only attend meetings when it is convenient to me.
I have already reported that before moving home I sold all my photographic equipment and "Gave up Photography". But then Mark Twain could just as easily said - "Giving up photography is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I've done it thousands of times". My interest in photograph has waned but I've purchased a second hand camera and I'm out and about 'taking snaps'. That's where my enjoyment lies - "so I'll give up photography on another day"!
Godalming Photographic Club meets within a reasonable distance from my home so, with the hope that it and it's member's can rekindle my enthusiasm, I will join them for the 2013-14 season. Wish me luck.
New pictures will start to appear from me but I will also be making an effort to show work by other photographers.
