May 2016

The competition subject for our May meeting was ‘Two Wheels Or More’.

There were many photos of bicycles and cars, with a few members thinking more laterally to shopping trolleys and Nepalese prayer wheels.

Winner of both the individual and group competitions was David Townshend with monochrome images of bicycles in Cambridge and Amsterdam that emphasised their graphic qualities.
