The Deepings Camera Club held a popular exhibition last weekend, displaying 148 prints by 25 members of the club.

It was officially opened by the Mayor of Market Deeping Roy Stephenson at the Deepings Community Centre, in Douglas Road, Market Deeping.

Pete Lawrence, from the club, said: “It went very well, we were really pleased.

“We had about 220 people fill in forms but a lot more came, so it was well attended.”

The exhibition proved popular on both Saturday and Sunday, with people enticed to come in by the excellent work on show and the free entry.

Visitors were able to admire a wide range of styles and techniques employed by members of the club.

The topics included portraits, landscapes, natural history, sport and creative.

This year visitors were asked to vote for their favourite images.

The visitors’ favourite was Kingfisher Reflection by Graham Clegg; second was Fire and Ice by Steve Marriott; and third was tied Tawny Owl and “Reflections Grasmere, Lake District” both by Dave Pendry.

Deepings Camera Club meets every week on Wednesdays at 7.30pm at the Deepings Community Centre. The club has a friendly atmosphere with a wide-ranging programme covering all aspects of photography.
