Bracklesham Outdoor Shoot
The destination selected for our first “in person” meeting for the Selsey Camera Club since the start of the Covid Pandemic was Bracklesham Bay. This location was chosen for an October outdoor shoot in the hope that, with suitable weather conditions, it could offer both action shots of Windsurfers and landscape shots showing the beauty of a spectacular sunset.
We were blessed with a bright sunny day but with little or no wind to encourage any windsurfers and a heavy mist shrouding the Isle of Wight. Despite the limiting climatic conditions there were plenty of opportunities for the eleven attendees (both club members and prospective club members) to find a variety of suitable subjects to record including, briefly, a seal swimming close to the shore near some surfboarders and several flocks of geese flying over.
Club League Round 2 - PDI entries scoring 9 and over
Our Next Meeting
Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesday 12th April when Witterings CC will host the MSW Shield, the annual three-way PDI inter-club competition against the Witterings and Middleton camera clubs.
The venue for this year’s competition is the West Wittering Memorial Hall, Elms Lane, West Wittering, PO20 8LW.
20 PDI entries from each club will be displayed in turn and scored by our Judge for the event, Rob DeRuiter ARPS.
This is normally a very closely fought contest which generates a good deal of good-humoured banter from all teams and an early arrival is recommended to ensure that you get a seat with a good view.

"Selsey Life" in 1982/83
Danny Glew, a former leading member of the club’s committee, has made available to the club a collection of 170 colour transparencies that he discovered recently during a spring-clean of his home in Cornwall. The slides were taken in and around Selsey during 1982 and 1983 and were part of a club iniative to capture various aspects of Selsey life.
His wish was to make these images more widely available to club members and to the wider community and asked us for help to produce a digital copy of the collection.
This collection has now been scanned, tidied and uploaded to the club's Flickr website and can be viewed by clicking the red button below. Apologies for the interruptions in viewing by adverts which are a "feature" of the free version of Flickr.
I hope a view of "Selsey Life" from over 37 years ago will be of interest
