The Ladysmith Camera Club October photo of the month

Machines the Oct. topic of camera club photos

The club meets at Hardwick Hall on High Street at Third Avenue in Ladysmith

The Ladysmith Camera Club October photo of the month, titled Machines Make Light Work, was taken by Saltair photographer Doug Bell in response to the theme ‘Machinery.’

“Doug’s goal was to capture both the curling shard and the whiff of smoke circling and rising up behind the drill bit,” says Camera Club Media Liaison Brad Grigor in a description of the photo.

The Camera Club’s next meeting takes place Nov. 14. “Our own acclaimed Ladysmith-based naturalist, author and photographer Bruce Whittington will present ‘The Naturalist as Photographer,’” says the Camera Club release.

The club meets at Hardwick Hall on High Street at Third Avenue in Ladysmith. Everyone is welcome. For non-members there is a $5 drop-in fee. The Ladysmith Camera Club welcomes new members from novice to pro. Find out more at
