It was a fine morning, the weather held off and the sun even came out!  Lots of fun was had, and we all caught up afterwards at The Watershed Cafe for some much needed sustenance.

Stay tuned for details of our October outing - it's a doozy!!!

Tribute to Dianne Davies

Today, the Port Adelaide Camera Club celebrated the life of Dianne Davies.

Dianne Davies joined the Port Adelaide Camera Club in 2007 and was a very popular and well respected member of our club. Her wonderful smile was so welcoming and drew everyone to her, even the insects which she loved to photograph were happy to pose for her. Dianne was able to spot a Dragonfly at 100 paces and had the patience to wait for it to land .... just so!

Dianne’s photographic accomplishments with the club were many: she has received the Silver Club Trophy in 2007, several Gold Club Trophies in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 & 2014, as well as winning the Nature trophy in 2012, 2013 & 2014; the Photo of The Year Trophy in 2015; and the Our Port Adelaide Trophy in 2016.

here is just a very small selection of Dianne's winning images.

The Port Adelaide Camera Club is all that much richer for her enthusiastic and inspirational contribution.

Her fun, happy nature was infectious and it was such a pleasure to spend time with her.

Dianne will be greatly missed by all the members.
