I have posted already about the fun we had on our Photography Holiday earlier this year, and what a fantastic group of photographers we had with us in Menorca.
However, I have not mentioned what this group gave us at the end of the holiday – it was one of the best ‘thank you’ presents Norene and I have ever received. It was a song! Just that – a song sung by the whole group during our ‘Light Monkey’ Awards party on the last evening of the holiday.
It never ceases to amaze me the wide range of talents and backgrounds in every group of photographers who come one these holidays. In that May group of snappers we had, among others, a retired surgeon, the wife of a scrap metal man, a nurse, and an ‘elf & safety’ person. We also had a retired GP, Bill Hammerton. Bill is a chorister and, together with the other photographers, he conspired to write a brilliant song about the photography holiday in Menorca.
Okay, some of the lines are ‘in’ jokes about the people involved during the week, but I have posted it here and I’m sure you get the jist of the sort of fun and mischief we get up to on these Photography Holidays – quite apart from a gteatr deal of training and tuition, of course.
The words were set to the tune of ‘Phil the Fluter’s Ball’, and I’ve embedded a YouTube video below of a lovely lady called Jane Rutter playing the tune so that you can get the idea.
It was sung with great gusto led by Bill.
And Oh! It’s just a hoot.
Chrorus – With a monkey…
Excuse me Linda, darling will you pose for me to shoot.
Chorus – With a monkey…
So join us in one last chorus now of Phil the Tutor’s Ball.
There are just two places available on the Photography Holiday in September
