I've just found/joined this group, but I'd like to come along, if that's OK?

Oh, and Buckaroo Kid? You're not a pedant - not in the strict definition of the word! ;-)

Darren, all are welcome. It helps a lot to sign up on the Upcoming link so Adrian (H&S) knows who is coming.

Heart & Soul PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Heart & Soul (admin) 5 years ago
Apologies for my bad spelling it's something you will have to get use to once you know me. As already stated by kathryn all are welcome regardless of whether you have been with us before. We are a very friendly bunch and it's always good to see new people no matter what your photography skills or camera you have.

Please make sure that you sign up on the upcoming link at the top of this thread. I look forward to meeting you all old and new on the 25th

Hi, I've just moved to Harpenden so it's a quick trip to london and I'd love to join you next week. I'm also looking at the trip to Paris in June.
admin
Heart & Soul PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Heart & Soul (admin) 5 years ago
pommyboi I'd make you mind up fast as cheap tickets have been out for week or more and are mostly gone I would think by now. The longer you leave getting the Paris tickets the more they will go up

On a more personal note welcome to LFM

Lionsze Thanks for the invite two weeks ago :))

PS it was your post on my other thread else where that got me thinking
LionSze PRO 5 years ago
Hehehehe. It was a proper shopping and coffee&cake day out so I didn't mention to flickr photographers :D (you guys were visiting the freezing seaside...)

oh cool - glad that I managed to give you some idea. There are 20 markets on the list - can't wait to visit them all :D
Darren Wilkin PRO 5 years ago
This is the day after payday for me - it's probably going to be SOOO tempting to splurge...
admin
Heart & Soul PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Heart & Soul (admin) 5 years ago
Lionsze not all off the ones you listed will be worth a visit least not on there own and others like bough market we have done before. That's not to say we can't do it gain however. I need to make some time this week to go through the list of suggestions and get this sorted out.
Sofaville Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Sofaville (member) 5 years ago
I might try and catch up with you all sometime during the day. There's a photography exhibition I want to go to nearby ( www.tristanhoare.co.uk/exhibitions-detroit.htm ) so it would be cool to squeeze in a flickrmeet too while I'm in the area.

Yep, retire to a pub & everyone orders TEA!, and in a teapot!
fujinliow PRO 5 years ago
what time does the market closes on saturday?
admin
Heart & Soul PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Heart & Soul (admin) 5 years ago
funjinlow I'm not sure however most markets start to close around 5 to 5:30pm. if people wish to have longer in the market that's not a big a issue these walks are normally quite easy going and not that ridge

for the time being guys please say yes on the upcoming if you are going or thinking about it. It helps me to know who's coming and that way you don't get left behind. In the same vain if you are a last minute cancellation at least leave a note on here

Sofaville, that exhibition looks interesting! I'm also tempted to go to that.

Until next time then....

Heart & Soul PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by Heart & Soul (admin) 5 years ago
Dickie Ticker Meeting point is Ladbrook grove tube station as most will be arriving by tube.

As for your motorcycle I'm afraid I have no knowledge of the area to advise.

For those coming all information required is post in the start of the thread

I will not be hanging around at the tube station for more than 10min. This walk will not be a structured one so not everyone has to stick together and can go walk at your own pace. So if you are a little late then just head to Portobello Road you are sure to find quite a few photographers there and at worst you can find us at the end point to say hello.

I will post an update tomorrow of the end point if it changes from the two list on start of this thread (size might be an issue).

If you are new to the group welcome aboard and I hope this will be the first of many, to my regular friends it will be nice to catch up.

see you all tomorrow :)
Dickie Ticker 5 years ago
Thanks for the reply, I've found this www.rbkc.gov.uk/pdf/motorcycle_bays_map.pdf I'm coming from Reading, only done one other Flickr walk a few years at the Tate Modern.
From Reading you may do better by train... to Paddington then about 3 stops on the underground. I've bopught some cough mixture and am going to try to come along as the weather is looking reasonable and i'm not feeling too bad at the moment
david.kittos PRO 5 years ago
Sorry guys can no longer make this, will try and make another photowalk soon.

For photos to be accepted. Please tag with the upcoming link on the top post
Also had a great day.. Thanks for organising this, Adrian. Hope everyone else also enjoyed themselves.
Scott David Jackson PRO 5 years ago
Hope you all had a good day! I ended up getting lost on my way and so was about 45 mins late by the time I found it. I spent hours looking for your red bag haha and photographers walking up and down the road, the problem being that EVERYONE seemed to have a ruddy camera and the number of red bags was unbelievable! :')

Like I said, hope you all had a good day and got some good pictures and I'll have to see if I can make the next one haha..might actually get to meet you all next time :P I'd never been there before and it was sunny and an adventure, at least! :)

Heart & Soul PRO 5 years ago
Sorry guys to have missed so many it's hard on walk like that. Not every where we go will be that full of photographers.

I had a great time meeting everyone old and new. I hope you enjoyed it and I really hope you come back for future walks. It's all you lovely people who make these walks.

Hope to have the next one posted earlier next week. This will be part of a series so watch this space.

Turned up late and completely underestimated quite how crowded the market and how easy finding everyone would be! Had fun exploring anyway - the Ruins of Detroit exhibition was small but interesting - if I had a spare £70 (!!!) I'd have loved to have bought the accompanying book.
Simon_Knowles 5 years ago
Thanks to Adrian for taking the time to arrange this - shame we all got quite split up but some good opportunities for pictures - very busy! Hope everyone had a good time, hope to see you at another meet in future...

Enjoyed wandering around Portobello Road. Thanks for organising, Adrian (and also to WitChi Wotcha for leading us afterwards to the fantastic Detroit exhibition!)
