3rd April 2014 saw the club host an old friend, Adrian Stone, who gave a presentation on his visit to North America and Canada.
Adrian is a regular visitor to the club, both in his capacity as a guest speaker and also as a judge for our print and image competitons.
Adrian is married to an American and seems to get regular visits across the pond.
His journey started off in Seattle, Washington, and took in Portland, Oregan, moving north up the Pacific Coast and into Canada where he visited Vancouver. He then returned back to Seattle.
Adrian explained that he had made contact with various groups and photographers before making the trip, as a result of which he was hosted and accompanied to various events and locations, and gained some special access to a number of venues including an ‘Access all Areas’ pass at a prestigious music event and privileged access to a personal historic vehicle collection.
The talk was liberally illustrated with many photographs which gave a lovely insight into the country, the people, the customs and lifestyles of many of the people he met on route.
