Our guest speaker on Monday 10 September was Ron Tear who delivered his talk entitled ‘Impressions of London’. Ron is a Londoner born and bred and it was clear that he has a great love of the capital city. Members were taken on a journey that encompassed the highs (views of the skyline) and the lows (the Underground network). Ron’s images showed London in all its guises and all weathers. The lengths taken to record shots in blizzard conditions had to be admired. There were shots of iconic London landmarks and detailed views that most would have not noticed and passed by. Ron has a great knowledge of London and his talk was interspersed with anecdotes and snippets of pertinent information.
Samuel Johnson said “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” Our members certainly did not tire of viewing Ron’s images and the appreciation was evident at the end of the evening.
