A keen amateur photographer since her teens, Carla
Hodgson has sustained this enthusiasm from her first
'snap and click' film camera to digital composition
and Photoshop. Having lived in Brundall for some
thirty five years, on joining the Brundall Local
History Group committee in 2016 it was her idea to
publish a picture book to contrast past and present
features of our village. Currently chairman of
the Norwich Digital Photo Club, Carla enjoys helping
new photographers and having fun experimenting with
digital imaging. She hopes this book may
inspire others to get out and about with their cameras
to continue recording our ever changing environment.
About the author:
Barbara Ayers has lived in
Brundall since 1979 but it was as manager of Brundall
Library that she decided that material in the library
relating to Brundall's history should not only be
preserved but shared with the community.
This led to the co-ordination of 'The Book of Brundall
and Braydeston' in 2007 and the founding, with others,
of the Brundall Local History Group. She is
Secretary of the Group and continues to research and
write about Brundall's history.
