Artists and media exhibitied in 2020VISION

Age range of contributing artists ranged from twelve years upward.  Several works were digital images sent in from international artists.  These were photographed and sent on mobile 'phones, so the image quality varied trom very bad to utterly dreadful.  They were modified in Quinninup, using GIMP, printed at the Northcliffe Community Resource Centre and framed in Quinninup.  This is not an ideal way to present original drawings, but is the only practical way at this time.

Fiona was telling me to be quiet or to behave, I don't know which, but it's usually both


These images were made with a Sony a7, selected because being outdated it was cheap and it will function with Nikon and Leica lenses via adaptors.  In honesty I have not taken to it.  It does what I need from a digital camera, but . . .
