TONY Ledger is not only recognised for his wildlife photography, but also for his keen sense of humour, which goes down well at Myall U3A Photography Group meetings.

“I’m always on the lookout for such situations, though one often has to wait a long time, as animals are unpredictable but worth the wait.”

Tony’s interest in photography began in 1954, taking shots of UK railway steam engines, motor racing and motorcycle speedway, a time “when you could stand inside the track close to the action, though it’s not allowed today”.

In those days Tony processed the photographs himself developing the prints in a dark room where, he wryly notes, his girlfriend commented, “Shall we go into the darkroom and see what develops?”

Each month the group selects a member’s photograph to appear in the Myall Coast News of the Area.
