MARCH Shoes and/or feet Projected Competition

March saw the Shoes and/or Feet projected image competition, before the club choose to go begin social distancing.

First place went to Ian Smith’s basket weaver.

Second place went to Jill Davies’s ethereal shot of a ballerina.

It was a good competition for Jill, with her shot of a newborn’s feet taking third place jointly with Pam Fisher’s image inspired by a recent speaker.
