Next Formal Meeting

The next formal meeting of the West Rand Photographic Club will take place as follows:

Date: Tuesday, 25 October, 2016
: 18h30 for 19h00 
Venue: Florida Library Auditorium c/o Third Avenue and Fieldhouse Street, Florida, West Rand. 
GPS Coordinates: S26 10.251 E027 54.653
See a map and directions here.

Social Evenings
Owing to the Interclub Challenge on Thursday 13 October, there will be no social meeting this month.
The club also holds monthly social meetings on the second Tuesday of each month where a workshop or lecture normally takes place. No images are judged at these informal meetings where you are free to discuss any topic as long as it is related to photography. Times and venues are notified by E-mail. Get directions here.

Set Subject - October 2016 - Clothing Fasteners
Choose from buttons, zips, shoelaces, belt buckles, anything that gets used for closing or fastening clothing. The clothing fastener itself must be the principal subject in your image so a picture of a pair of jeans in which you can see the buttons would not qualify.
