Straws by Eve Rice - one of five images to gain top marks in Framlingham Camera Club

Straws by Eve Rice - one of five images to gain top marks in Framlingham Camera Club's final in-house competition of 2013, with the theme of “Household Objects Viewed Differently”

Eve Rice

Five photographers captured the everyday from a different angle to produce these fascinating images.


Each photo gained 20 out of 20 in Framlingham Camera Club’s latest in-house competition, which had the theme of “Household Objects Viewed Differently”.

In the last year, six in-house competitions were refereed by invited judges, with Alan Sarsby from Diss adjudicating over the last.

All the images were digitally projected and the competition was well subscribed - with 53 images submitted by 14 members. Top scorers included Keep Smiling by Simon Garret, Grater lights by Roger Searle, Straws by Eve Rice, In the Can by Basil Welch and Fizz by Michael Poole.

The club meets on the third Thursday of the month. Meetings include talks, workshops and competitions, with an annual exhibition of members’ work in September. Images of a high standard go on show at the Unitarian Meeting House. The club also engages in photo battles with neighbouring clubs.
