Geoff is Poorly
Geoff Eynon, committee member, equipment officer, father of the Club Christmas meal caterers, mainstay of the Club for many years, good company and good photographer, is languishing in RUH when he should have been enjoying a cruise. He's not very well just now, but chiefly very, very bored and fed up. Give him a ring if you can.

Wheels; Sporting moments; Environmental damage; People in their Element; Symmetry; Lighthouses; Bridges; In an English town/city; Photoelasticity: (an effect created using a polarizing filter while photographing transparent plastic under polarized light); Old & New; Wings; Black and white with one colour; Balloons; Landscape; Farming.
