I'm coming over from Ireland for the Photo Show at the NEC in September.  Myself and a couple of other A***y heads are meeting on Sunday 20th September at the show.  It would be great if some of you would be available for a coffee and a chat.  If anyone's interested, just add your name below!

I am planning to be there on the Monday, but depending on other stuff might be able to make the Sunday for a while.

I'll be by the Alamy stand practicing my hard stare...

 

 

I’m going nowhere near that stand as I can’t guarantee how I’ll react… 😡

Ah, memories.......its predecessor Photography At Work used to be one of our works outings.

That and whatever the RPS had on at the Octagon in Spring, a not-too-unpleasant drive along the A4 (not the M4, heaven forbid), morning coffee in Marlborough and lunch at The Hole in the Wall where we were collecting loyalty stamps for a freebie- only ever got 5 out of 6 because the RPS moved to a salt mine in Devizes. It went back to Bath eventually but we never did.

Looks like the Hole closed this year as well. Sigh.

Dare not come to the show. Will end up buying things I don't want or need. GAS.

That was another feature of Photokina- exhibitors weren't allowed to sell stuff off the stands.

No more. 🙁.

Would like to go, but I told my wife I won't buy any more camera gear... ever, but I don't have the willpower to resist!

For anyone planning on meeting, we're assembling at the Nikon stand at 11.30am on Sunday 19th September and we can have a chin-wag over coffee. Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you there.

I’ll not be there that early if at all on the Sunday, but will be on Monday if anyone else is…

As we get closer I was thinking "shall I".  Then looked at the distance and time to drive from where I am staying to NEC and back, and considering the long drive home the following day. Nah.  Hey! Wait a minute! I could get the train from Crewe to Birmingham International station. Hmmm!  As Edo would say, "YIKES!" not at over £25 in each direction.

 

So Sorry guys I would love to have seen you all there but not this time.

 

Allan

 

Now listen to the big sighs of relief from all those going.🙂
