I’ve mentioned before that I’m a member of the Blipfoto photo-a-day journalling site. Occasionally there are get togethers which are called blipmeets…the first one I attended was at wonderful Whipsnade Zoo.
More recently a couple of us organised a meet for Ely and several people came along too. The weather was glorious and I think we all got at least one or two shots we were happy with 🙂
There was only blipper that I was totally unfamilar with; a few from the Whipsnade meet, a couple of ladies that I interact with a lot but have never met, my friend Anne who I first met at Whipsnade, and my friend Martyn, who’s an excellent local photographer.
There is a slideshow below from my Flickr album of the day but here are a few highlights:
A walk through Cherry Hill Park with an admirable view of the cathedral.
Always wonderful inside too.
Amazing ceiling and, of course, the octagon, which I shared one view of as My Sunday Photo recently.
The light wasn’t great for interior shots without a tripod but I did get a couple of decent photos.
We were photographing the beautiful statue and I offered to take a photo of Martyn and his son…he handed over his Canon and it proved to be slightly superior to my Nikon. I won’t be changing any time soon though!
Back out into the sunshine for a short riverside walk before lunch.
Several of the group headed home at lunchtime so afterwards I joined a couple of them for a little wander around the antiques centre before making my own way home to Stella.
Another favourite location with Ely photographers; the bicycle wasn’t there the first time by, but, when I was leaving it was so I took the opportunity for an extra photo 🙂
A brilliant day. Have you got a favourite place to photograph?
