Comments from the ADAPS Westhoughton Exhibition

Post by John » Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:31 pm

The ADAPS Photographic Exhibition at Westhoughton library is attracting many compliments in the visitor’s book. Also, we have asked visitors to vote on their favourite photographs - this is not a competition, more to give us an indication of what the public likes. Photos with no votes doesn’t necessarily mean that they are not liked – there is not sufficient room to display all the photographs submitted, even when the photographs are occasionally swapped for ones that haven’t been exhibited yet. So here are the results so far: the numbers of votes (and comments, where provided) against each photo provided by the visitors for their “favourite photographs”


No.
