I pinched this link from the Cunning Artificer's site. They are Nonnymouse's pictures. I recognise one or two people in there. ;)

He certainly is. :D

OK, all the pictures I am going to post are now available on this slide show, as usual with flickr if you move your cursor to the top right you will see an option to 'show info', clicking on that will tell you what you are looking at (if I have worked it out) and the date and time the picture was taken in YYYYMMDD HHMM format

Excellent pics Mad and thanks for the link to Nonny's page Tony! :handgestures-thumbupleft: :D

I've managed to get Fridays photos done and they can be found below. Unfortunately, due to forgetting my main long zoom lens (which I only found out about when I unpacked) I had to go out first thing Friday morning to Jessops and by a cheap replacement. Hence the picture quality of some of the photos aren't as good as I would have liked, particularly in the auditorium events where flash was prohibited and the ISO was set at a ridiculously high level (I think some were at around the 2000 mark). At this point I would like to publicly thank a chap named Gideon who offered me, a complete stranger, the loan of his Canon 70-200mm f/4 lens (value approx £1200). :shock: I think that this spontaneous spirit of generosity pretty much sums up the type of people attending and what makes such a great weekend. :D

Chris, if you attend the next one and shave your bum they might give you a blue dot granting advantageous access to the individual events. ;)

Anyway, here's my photos from Friday;

That one came about because it was taken at a silly ISO and wouldn't come out in colour. All it needed (IMO) was for his head to be turned slightly more towards the camera and it would have made a great competition entry for the club. :lol:
