Want to come out to play?

5 Sep

Wanna come onย a photowalk round Edinburgh on Saturday 9th October?

What’s a Photowalk you ask?

Well you sort of walk, and take photos.

That’s it really.

No matter what kind of camera you have, be it a phone, or an all singing all dancing dSLR or anything in between… walking about taking photos is kinda fun.

Especially in Edinburgh.

A rough itinerary…

  • 14:00 Meetup outside Waverley Station
  • 14:00-16:00 Walk and take photos! I will plan a route to include the Grassmarket, Greyfriars Cemetery, The Royal Mile and time permitting, Princess Street Gardens. I am also working on getting permission from some places with roofs as a wet weather backup.
  • 16:00-17:00 Make our way to Calton Hill, weather permitting, for some cityscapes in the hour before sunset.
  • 17:00-hometime Eat, drink and make merry at a venue to be decided.

Given the route and the necessity for popping into the nearest hostelry at the slightest drop of rain this event won’t be suitable for children.

I have a few participants already lined up but the more the merrier I always say, hence this blog plug.

You can either email me or leave me a comment with your email address so I can add you to the list of attendees and keep you up to date with arrangements.

And… if you want to skip the walking bit and just come for the food and drink bit that will be tickety-boo too.

I look forward to meeting new friends, taking some fab fotees and, with permission, sharing them to showcase our pretty darn beautiful capital city.

    I’d love to come, put me down as a maybe though because I doubt I can leave a 3-4 week old for more than an hour (maybe I can, I just couldn’t with no.1) so will play it by ear. If not this time, then next!

      I can see that would be difficult! There’s a few got little uns they can’t leave for the day – totally understandable. I think a family friendly “Pictures in the Park” is called for yes? Though I think we’ll wait for the springtime – getting chilly already ๐Ÿ™‚

    That sounds amazing. Hope I can maybe, just maybe pull it off, but we’ll have to see.

    I wish I lived a bit closer – sounds like it will be a great afternoon x

    I’m in! After Room on the Broom, so probably a post-walk attendee. I might manage Calton Hill but not sure my Boots disposable camera will do the sunset justice… ๐Ÿ˜‰
