Park Street CC Lastmonth the Park Street Camera Club held their annual Creative Cup competition and it was won by previous winner Rosemary Wenzerul with her image Asleep on the Beach, which was inspired by the sight of the oddly-shaped flat stone on the beach. It reminded her of the old fashioned potato headdolls. The clever bitwas thinkinghowa living star fish could be introduced to the composition to simulate the arms and legs of a sunbather. Then it was only a matter of positioning tiny shells and pebbles to create the eyes andmouth. The fact that she did all this in-camera rather than in editing made the picture so much more appealing. Park Street CC meet at St Stephen Parish Centre, Station Road, Bricket Wood, St Albans AL2 3PJ. Meetings are on Thursday nights 7:45pm for 8pm.
