VISUAL ARTS Brenda McKetty
Happy Snappers Camera Club are a group of enthusiastic amateur photographers who meet to share ideas and experiences. This is a selection of some of the photographs their members have taken since the group formed in 2009.
Quirky, colourful and full of joie de vivre, these West Country harbours are filled with bustling, jolly fishing boats. Higgledy-piggledy cottages tumble downwards to the harbour’s edge. A reminder of holidays when the days were always sunny and the sea was always blue.
Sunlit Days, Starry Nights
“With encouragement from my lovely husband I left work in my mid fifties and went to university to do a degree course in illustration. A wonderful time and I have never looked back. Still painting and having a glorious time”. Brenda McKetty

Nigel Holland How Quick? How fast? Nigel’s vivid collection of photographs, shot over the last seven years at Santa Pod Raceway, captures the exhilarating experience of the movement, acceleration and raw power produced by these two and four wheel vehicles. “When these powerful engines produce between 800 and 8000 bhp, it’s true when they say, ‘Come and feel the noise!” Nigel Holland
