John Summerhill: The pleasures of photography

This meeting was a talk from John Summerhill who has visited us several times to show us his images from his travels in the Far East. John's dry humour entertained us with a wide range of pictures from Laos and Cambodia both of which provide opportunities to see many temples, houses on stilts and not least the opportunities to try the local cuisine of roasted rat, crunchy frog, dried tarantula and aged eggs. What's not to like?

Perhaps most interesting were John's final images from the Angkor temples where the trees have completely taken over the buildings over time.

It's always interesting to see the lifestyle and culture of different nations and John's images provided much food for thought - though probably we can all live without the images of roasted rat.
