The picture of the courtroom that is now a cafe in St Albans at the top of this page encompasses the essence of the theme for our talented photographers.

‘Past and Present’ is the current challenge for our camera club members and they continue to illustrate this with an impressive range of pictures you can enjoy by scrolling down this page, featuring historic London landmarks to places and objects you'll recognise closer to home.

this week’s selection of pictures also show an example of the old and new within one building in Watford High Street.

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.
