Three members presented a mixture of documentary DPIs and AVs at our last meeting.  

Dorothy took us on a visit to the Carnevale, with many vibrant images taken over a number of years while visiting or living in Italy.  She cleverly integrated a voiceover too, using iMovie, to give us an understanding of the history of Carnevale and of some of the floats making satirical political statements.

Amanda, in contrast, took us to the British Virgin Islands with images of how the islands looked pre- and post- the 2017 storms.  From a Caribbean ideal to a devastated landscape, with images of destroyed communities, houses, cars and boats, it gave us an understanding of the enormous challenge now facing BVI if it is to successfully rebuild.

Alan meanwhile stayed closer to home with his study of North Wiltshire Wildlife, with many of the images shown being taken during his frequent visits to his allotment and the river around Lacock.  Birds, butterflies, damselflies, dragonflies and small mammals were all featured.

Next meeting: watch out as we pretend to be tourists with our mobile phones around Lacock!
