London Street Photography

On Sunday 7 of us from the Cambridge Camera Club visited London with the prime reason of going to Tate Modern to see the Sir Elton John Exhibition of the Modernistic Photographer he has collected from photographers who where 'masters' before the 1950's. A most excellent Exhibition, a must to see if you are in London. We left the Tate and had a bite to eat and then walked over to St Pauli and from there we took the tube to Brick Lane, a well known street photography opportunity. As we arrive at Brick Lane it started to rain so we decided to have a cup of Tea. As time was getting on, some of us decided rather than venture out we would return home.

These photos are from that walk to and from the Tate and then onto to Brick Lane. I decided to convert all the photos to monochrome.

Well Done to Mark for organising an excellent day.

CCC Visit to Welney WWT

Last Friday 11 people from the Cambridge Camera Club visited Wildfowl and Wetland Trust (WWT) at Welney on the Hundred Foot Bank to see the Swans and other birds. In the morning we stayed at the hide near the visitor centre. Then in the afternoon we walked down to the Lyle Hide. We managed to see Whooper Swans (who had arrived from Iceland) Mute Swans (who are resident here all year), Teal, Wigeon, Stonechat, Lapwing, Pied Wagtail, Geese and Snipe. Two birds I saw but no pictures where a Kingfisher (the first time I had seen one in the wild) and then as we where leaving I did see a Barn Owl which was really exciting.
