Autumn is well and truly upon us now.  

Last weekend I visited our photography's club (South Kildare Photography Club) new exhibition whichwas being held in the Newbridge Credit Union to coincide with a local festival celebrating the  200th birthday of the town.  It was fantastic to the great work from the members of the club in print.  It is credit to the members that we have such a variety of talented photographers in the club and the print quality of the photos was brilliant.  Thanks especially to the members who organised the event and spent a number of days erecting the images in the Credit Union.  A big thanks also to Newbridge Credit Union for hosting the event

Food Photography Workshop by Scott Heimendinger, Edible: The Taste of Things to Come, Dublin Science Gallery
