All quiet

Bawmer says:

There doesn't seem to be too much activity in this group. With 22 members we should be able to get something going. Anyone want to to tell us something about themselves? To get the ball rolling.........

I 've become a bit of a Flickr addict in the last couple of months. Found myself with some time on my hands and had my distant interest in photography re-kindled - digital this time. Resulted last week in the purchase of a Nikon D40. Hope the investment was worth it! I'm a southerner by birth (please don't hold that against me)but have lived in the Warrington area for almost 20 years.

Sitting here in Harrogate wondering when the next chance I'll have to visit will be, it's great to see that other people have been keeping the good work up lately. Thanks to all of you!

Hi all,

I've just joined this group so just dropping in to say hi before I go searching for pics in and around Warrington to post to the pool, then I'll be searching through the discussions to see what's happening.

Hi Bawmer. Just joined this group - actually, only just signed up for the site itself. I have lived in the town all my life and have a website about it called www.mywarrington.me.uk I invite members to view it and post comments, either here or via my feedback.

Hi I'm Michael, and I'm from Darwen, Guy spotted my photo of a seemingly happy train driver pulling into Warrington Bank Quay station, and wanted to use it for the group. Used to get over to Warrington a lot, and other places beside, using the wayfarer tickets, if I was feeling non to energetic I would have a day spotting on Bank Quay station, hence the train pictures. There is just so much to see in and around Warrington that it would be nice to get to know the place better, all for now, perhaps more later, Michael.

Blimey! it is quiet around here...

I live in Winwick and take snapps of what ever catches my eye. Some on my 'phone. most with a Panasonic Lumix FZ18.

I'm still in the early stages of learning this black art as you can see from my pictures...

Hi Dave & other Warrington peeps. I'm struggling to find much of interest to take pics of in Warrington. Is anyone else having this problem? Any ideas of good locations? Also I feel totally comfortable in Liverpool out and about with my camera (perhaps cos so many people chasing Superlambananas), but I feel like everyone's watching me and wondering why in Warrington, arggghhhh.

Hiya I too am having real problems with finding photos to take in Warrington. I'd love a list of great places in the surrounding area that are cool to shoot.

A couple of hours spent walking around the Town Centre will yield an enormous amount of photographic opportunities, give it a try.

There's 114 members.
I don't think it's quiet.
I run 2 "Specialised" Liverpool groups, and wish I could get so many people to take part in a Discussion.
I live in Liverpool, but like Warrington, and find lots to photograph in the town centre.
Initially, I wanted to snap what cinemas and theatres remained, but Warrington has lost a bigger percentage of those than other towns.

Hi to all! Newcomer to the group (and to t'internet in fact). I found this group while searching for images of the Ring O'Bells pub in Church Street - surprised there are so few! Very photogenic area with the superb church next door and some 17th century buildings around. Also, if you like nature photography, the "Twiggery" is not far away, also the main cemetery yields interestings sights.
To philip - have you thought about pub pictures before they all go the way of the theatres?

I prefer to not take my camera into the town centre. It worries me now with all the yobs and funny looks I get. I tend to stick to the outskirts and countryside bits, like Walton hall gardens, a lovely spot fust south of town centre, Sankey valley park runs right through the county, lots of wildlife and nature to see and shoot. I even stop on little lanes to shoot wildflowers on the verges in newton le willows towards Lowton. Church yards are also great places to shoot.

Hi everyone, from Chapelford. For those who don't know Chapelford yet, it's the new name now they've built on the old Burtonwood Air Base - where the big warehouses were.

I've had a Canon 300D since they first came out and am still finding new features to play with, but am thinking of moving up to a 450D, or maybe a 40D - any recommendations?

I enjoy taking landscapes but most of my photos tend to be opportunistic, as I don't have much time to get out and about due to work and family. I'm a firm believer that 80% of a shot is seeing it, 19% is taking it and no more than 1% should be added on the PC. I know others disagree!

I agree on those percentages - they seem OK to me, but I know what you mean about other views. You just have to look at some of the streams on FlickR!
