On Thursday, September 14, 2017, Bring Your Thing hosted “Capture Kingston” at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning. People were invited to show off how they capture Kingston, and they did not disappoint! We saw old cameras too Kingston photographs shared at the latest Bring Your Thing. We were also happy to have local historian, Jennifer McKendry, share “Kingston Revealed” a talk about the history of Photography around Kingston.
Bring Your Thing was happy to display artifacts from various local museums and collections, including the Military Communications and Electronics Museum, St. George’s Cathedral, the W.D. Jordan Rare books and Special Collections, and The Royal Military College Museum.
This is a Rolleiflex 2.8F TLR. The camera was a gift from a loved one and was owned by my great grandfather before me.
This is a sculpture created by Joan Woods, one of the Original members of the Kingston Potters Guild, showing the excitement, teamwork and problems involved with preparing for a pottery sale
Visitors were challenged with capturing a scene of Kingston with Play-Dou.
Jennifer McKendry shared items from her personal collection before she presented.
