Can't do it - I'm rehearsing till 10pm Friday, and then from 10am to 6pm Sunday and I'll be knackered if I go to York too :-(
Hope you all hace a great time - looking forward to seeing some TTV pics from you, JD!

We've done a deal, i take a tripod and JD takes his TTV....but if he thinks he's gonna get to use his TTV he's another thing coming :P

*Smiles sweetly* can I have a go on your TTV thingy kind sir??????
ceaseless oven [deleted] 12 years ago
very possibly!!! I mean of course! just so long as I get to use it myself during the day!!!

I've got a spare duaflex I can bring and some black art board incase anyone wasnt to meet me on the train and make up a contraption on the way???

Excuse me if I'm being ignorant, but what's a TTV? I only know it as an acronym for one of the bands I play in.

Through the Viewfinder! Basically you take a pic...well...through the viewfinder of another camera! Usually a TLR but some people use 4x5 cameras and take through the ground glass.

I've got a 4x5 and a TLR but haven't made a contraption yet that blocks out light between the viewfinder and the lens. Hence i'll be borrowing JD's cardboard tube affair!

ceaseless oven [deleted] 12 years ago

Mmmm, it's 11.30 and I don't think I'll be going for the 0740 after all - if you are meeting at 9 at the station I'll probably see you there JD and OAN.

Say hello to Brenda for me :-)

"Through the Viewfinder" - I'm tempted to ask "why?", although that probably invites similar questions about my music :)
utopian pin [deleted] 12 years ago
Ha! I've no idea why! It is a bit of a gimmick like a fish eye lens or something. But...i like it!

I'll have to give your music a listen...then maybe i'll understand why :)

Interesting link, Dan :-)

Just to pre-empt anyone asking "why?" about my music, I've just been on a bit of a stream-of consciousness bender. Please see my latest blog post here:

Good justification - if you needed one, which you don't! :-)

Thanks Polly. Anyway, back on topic, who's off to York this... oh, you're already there, you say? I thought it was quiet around here :)
polly.jayne 12 years ago
I'm not there. I intended to be, but eventually decided that as I was busy yesterday and tomorrow, it would be the only day I'd got spare to shop for catfood and do some washing! And vegetate, of course.......
I'm only surprised that no-one has started uploading pics on a laptop in York!

Just got back....but i'm never first to post pics so will leave that to others!! I will say the candy cane for your portrait went well (we set up on the busiest street in York and gave sweets (and will send copies of the pics) to anyone who posed for us)....between us we got portraits of everything from policemen to a tophat wearing Swiss travelling blacksmith called Sebastian!! And somehow managed to do publicity shots for Yorktest.com....you're only one click away from better health apparently!

I'm gonna post now!! But you already beat me to it....sigh....

That portrait thing looks like a great idea - wonder how it would go down here in Sheff?
ceaseless oven [deleted] 12 years ago
yea, we discussed doing it in sheffield, but haven't laid the plans yet... would be a totally different atmosphere tho, unless we can create something, or catch a good date with some sort of festival going on :D
polly.jayne 12 years ago
Maybe one of the city centre events this summer?
