Would anyone like another Photoday?
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:13:54 am »
In the past we've had several YACF Photodays. The format has largely been:

A day is chosen
Some people meet*, some don't. It matters not.
Have fun, take photos, then, if you want
choose the best and there's an informal competition for Best Overall Photo and Best Cycling themed Photo

If anyone is interested, and has a preferred date/place, post below.

* generally it's been not more than 10 or so people and it's been London and Oxford (and somewhere else?)
If you don't like your democracy, vote against it.

I would like, but probably can't commit (for obvious, mid-move, reasons).  Birmingham would be an interesting venue, mind.
Getting there...

Wouldn't the challenge be greater if you went to somewhere not steeped in centuries of history such as Milton Keynes for instance?

We could make a calendar of photos of roundabouts...

There was I, thinking Milton Keynes comprised multiple old villages and was a town built on Watling Street...

Or have it forum wide by letting people take photies in their local area rather than meeting up in person?

I think, set a date and a preferred location (Didcot?) and those that cannot make it take pixies in their own location.

Is there a theme and any rules on editing etc. or is it just anything goes?

Rugby has lots of interesting architecture and open spaces too so we would have lots of scope.
