The contrast between old and new - the past and the present - is perhaps most apparent in the architecture surrounding us but it is visible in many other aspects of our lives.

'Past and Present' is the new theme for our camera club and the image lower down this page of a woman on her mobile phone walking past a telephone box illustrates the other ways the challenge can be interpreted visually.

The Watford Observer Camera Club is a Facebook-based group. It is open to all photographers – from those who snap pictures on their phones, to professionals who capture perfect shots with specialist equipment.

Every four weeks, members of the camera club are set a new challenge, a theme is selected and then the work starts for our talented photographers.

Search for Watford Observer Camera Club on Facebook. Ask to join the group and we’ll accept you.
