Mike Covell talk revealed… and Week 22 Challenge: Jubilee!

“East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2” is our talk by Mike Covell, and perhaps unsurprisingly our Week 22 Challenge is the #PlatinumJubilee

East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2

FOLLOWING the recent poll then the talk by Mike Covell (author, historian, researcher) most requested by members is “East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2“. The talk by Mike will take place on Wednesday 15 June at the Haven Arms promptly at 7pm. Members and visitors are asked to arrive early to find their seats and get their drinks ready for a 7pm start.

Take a walk along the coast or the countryside and the likelihood of finding remnants of the defences put in place to protect the country from invasion is higher than you might think. Some are better preserved than others, and of course, as photographers, many of these make exciting subjects to discover and make images from!

The meeting is FREE to attend, but we will be making a collection to cover costs.


Week 22 of 52-Week Challenge – The Jubilee!

Millions will be marking the Platinum Jubilee over the next few days. Your challenge this week is not only to capture the events in images but to record those parts of the celebrations that might be overlooked by others. Millions of photos will be taken during the long bank holiday weekend, whilst many will sit on phones or camera memory cards remaining unseen, others will be pored over by future generations as unique pictures capturing the mood, atmosphere and characters involved. You know what YOUR challenge is for this Week 22!

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock.

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages. E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.

Club News – Choose a topic and Bridlington Weekend!

CHOOSE a topic for a Club Talk – Mike Covell is back speaking at Hedon Viewfinders!

MIKE COVELL, historian, tour guide and expert on the darker side of local history, last spoke to Hedon Viewfinders in October 2019 on the grizzly murder of local girl Mary Jane Langley in Preston in 1891. It was a very different night for the photography club which appealed to and attracted a far wider audience. Prior to that, Mike has also hosted an amazing photo walk around Hull City Centre for Viewfinders.

Well, he’s back! And we have a choice of three subjects to choose from for his topic at a future meeting.

  1. Witchcraft in Yorkshire
  2. East Yorkshire Defences in World Wars 1 and 2
  3. East Yorkshire Ghosts

Each subject has an interest factor for photographers with photography being one of the documentary mediums used to report and record the subject matter. But again each subject has the potential to attract a non-photographer audience too.

Do let us know in the comments which subject you would prefer – or take part in the poll on the Hedon Viewfinders Facebook group: Viewfinders – Through the Lens (Members).

At Hedon Viewfinders – Speaker: Mike Covell. Marfleet Murder Mystery.

Wed 16 October 2019, 7pm prompt at the Haven Arms. With her throat cut in a jagged wound, the murder of Mary Jane Langley instigated a media frenzy at the time but today is largely forgotten. And the murder still remains unsolved… Mike Covell investigates!

Something very different for our next meeting!

Wed 16 October 2019, 7pm prompt at the Haven Arms.

Speaker: Mike Covell. Marfleet Murder Mystery. It’s 128 years ago since the discovery of the bloody body of Preston girl 18-year-old Mary Jane Langley. With her throat cut in a jagged wound, the murder instigated a media frenzy at the time but today is largely forgotten. And the murder still remains unsolved… Mike Covell investigates!

This will obviously interest photographers to discover how the documentary media of the time reported the case – but the presentation from Mike Covell will appeal to a far wider audience.
