Last week Tom Dodd visited Gwynfa and gave us an insight into his methods of preparing monochrome images. He has now kindly provided an aide-mémoire outlining the method. You can find it here.
The Gwynfa Express rolled in the great metropolis of London last Saturday after an uneventful journey up the M4 in a packed Mainline coach. As the luxurious coach (complete with fully functioning toilets and air conditioning) arrived outside the Natural History Museum the doors opened and Gwynfa members, family and friends were disgorged on to the streets of an unsuspecting capital. They disappeared in all directions like several troupes of headless chickens.Where they went, no one is really sure, but these photographs give an insight into some of the activities of the day!
If you would like some of your photos included here, please send them to Leigh.

Last night Allan Squires won the April ‘Simplicity‘ competition and by so doing became the latest winner of the coveted Jim Davis Trophy.
Allan’s photo was entitled ‘Doorway to my mind‘ and gave us a remarkable insight to what is actually in there! In second place with her print, ‘Snow Drop‘ was Susanna Saunders.
The runners up were Mike Lewis with his print entitled ‘Pipes‘ and Linda Carpenter with her DPI entitled ‘The Chair‘. The judge was Rob Mitchell of Swansea.
