Documenting An Eventful Saturdays Togging

Saturday (the 18th of July) just gone was one busy and fun day, strengthening contacts and making a load of new ones. Initially it was the day of Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk - second annual that is - which I was taking part in by joining the Newcastle Upon Tyne contingent of the event along with Dave my usual tog buddy.

We, being people that want to fit as much as we can into a days photography, decided also to get in some more shots and become more known amongst the North East Cosplayers who were doing gay pride in their own way (see below).

Gay Pride Cosplay Style

These guys are hilarious and we were able to spot Wally from "Where's Wally" outside the station.

We followed as they marched on their well trodden path around the anime shops with their gay pride banner.

The Photo Walk

Leaving the cosplayers to do their stuff, we headed to the quayside for the meet passing some buskers who were pretty good and took a snap - they posed too while playing :D

Buskers On The Quayside

Hard to think of different ways to take photos of a subject like the quayside that you have done times before, I ventured for the abstract mostly...

An Alternative View From Milennium Bridge

...which seems to work as "different" plus a bonus on the Millennium Bridge opening up to let a boat through.

I didn't take much else of worthiness from that point, sky was awful spoiling shots and to be honest I'd done the quayside before but happy with the few I did get. The group ventured onto the Gateshead side and the Sage which I hadn't been in before, so another bonus.

Then tried something really abstract in the Baltic Art Gallery entrance (and yes I know, it's not straight because I took it at an angle on purpose).

And we came to the end of the Photo Walk event and people went their ways. A great day and great to see new faces and meet new photographers - and not just from this area as a couple had come down from Glasgow.

...But Our Photo Walk Continued...

I had some experimentation with a sinister looking underpass shot (and yes that's Dave, he's the sinister bit :D)...

...investigated a graveyard...

...found an alien on a wall...

...and finally a space invader to finish the day.

Can't wait for the next one, let's hope this one is as successful as last years or more and gets into the record books.

Hi,

After reading you blog i really like what i saw and loved your photography. I couldn't find an email address so i'm leaving this comment...I'd like to know if you'd be interested in displaying some of your photography on my new website www.artsbee.com. It's similar to redbubble which i've noticed you are on also.

Look forward to hearing from you,

thanks
