With load shedding being implemented on our meeting nights, we may have to change venues with short notice. Please look out for email notices, Facebook alerts and SMSes, as this will be how we will notify you of a change of venue. 

2. Photo Sharing 

The set subject is "Tell Me A Story". We want you to tell a story in your image. Include as much detail as possible, to give the viewer an idea of your story. Either create a scene, and photograph it. Or capture a scene, or happening, to tell the story of the moment. 
Get inspiration by the images shown in National Geographic.
