After a very successful meet at Brimham Rocks recently, photographs here, organised by @Mardybum and attended by @robphotographer @Phil-D, @randomwindows and myself it was suggested and unanimously voted that we have monthly Leeds (and local) meets.

The next one is scheduled for the 22 November and the thread is here.

So, here is where we all make suggestions for locations, what techniques we want to do/try/learn and suggested monthly dates.

I don't think there is the facility to see how many TP members are from Leeds (and local) but I know there will be plenty, so to paraphrase Tim Leary, Tune In, Turn On and Tog Out :)

Cheers all.

Nice one, Lynne.

A coastal meet would be interesting I think. Saturday afternoon on the coast (wrapped up warm) then after dark 5.30ish a bit of light painting on the moors at Rosedale Abbey?
I'd need plenty of advanced warning for such a trip othwerwise Jackie will won't be happy :)

I use Pintrest a lot - it's a great resource.

Cheers.

Is Pinterest pretty much the same as flickr? What's different ?
I rarely look for photograph on Flickr but do on Pinterest. I really like how Pinterest is organised and how you can create boards on different subjects, add to then, follow others boards, pin from them and the web in general.

Would not be without it...:)

Cheers.

Flickr is your own personal work, as with pinterest you can search for inspiration with anything, i have boards with pins for food recipes and also graphic design stuff, like a digital mood board

That's where I bumped into you in spring I think? You were taking the spaniels for a walk....
Probably,,, best dog walking place around,,,, now if you fancy having a go at fast moving dog photography on one of these meets that can be arranged,,, I have 7 and all are up for playing ball throwing,,, posing etc, although this time of year that would need to be in daylight

How about a RSPB St Aidens or Fairburn Ings walk about? Meet around 1pm for a few hours?
So Rich, you want to see Andy......well here's your wish!........you too can have nightmares...... like the rest of us have done in this years TP52 challenge :runaway:
