    The end of September would be a good time to have a get together, we said we would meet up and show a few prints. Can we agree a date and venue, at the last meeting we suggested a Hotel lobby, I was in Temple Bar Hotel lobby and thought it would make a good meeting venue. Any other suggestions or ideas. Shoud we start a new tread for this "get together"

    Eddie sounds like a good idea to me. Count me in. Lets make it a Saturday after lunch. Remember it is open to everyone that is interested in the formation of a group without frontiers ( unless they are digital ones)

    Cheers

    Eddie thought that the lobby in the Temple Bar Hotel looked good. So lets make it SATURDAY 26th Sept. @ 2:30 pm in the TEMPLE BAR HOTEL LOBBY.
    All in favour raise your hands.

    Cheers

    So far we have 6 people hoping to attend next Sat., which is a nice number for showing prints. But of course if more people attended it would be even better. So we're talking about next Saturday 26th September 2:30pm in the Temple Bar Hotel.

    Cheers

    On reflection I think that with 7 people showing up and all bringing work it was a successful get together. I enjoyed meeting everyone and looking at their work. There is something to be said for meeting in an hotel lobby, the meetings can be more casual and people can have a drink. I will however check out the alternative venue in the meantime for our next meet-up end of Jan. or early Feb.2010.

    Cheers

    Great to hear it went well, Tex!

    That website is good. I signed up to it some six months ago I'd say.

    Haven't been on it in a while.

    Another site I registered with recently is http://www.f295.org/Pinholeforum/forum/Blah.pl

    which deals with pinhole photography. I'm building my own pinhole 6x6 camera at the moment

    and this site is a great resource for ideas and inspiration.

    Cheers,
    Seoirse.

    Also enjoyed the weekend meet up, something I thought I would mention is that I had seen Hugh's work at Peoples Photography where we both exhibited so I considered myself to be familar with his recent work, not so, it was a totally differant experience to handle discuss and look at the prints up close in a relaxed setting.
    I also looked at the site, very familar in layout, enjoyed a good article on builing a darkroom in a garden shed. Looking forward to next meet up, and to producing some new work to show.

    Yes, this was a very enjoyable afternoon - good to meet you all again (or in some cases for the first time) - I picked up a lot of useful tips and information too. Looking forward to the next one ...
