Durham Photo Walk


Link Posted 24/10/2014 - 08:49
I joined in the worldwide photo walk a couple of weeks ago with a group of around 40 photographers in Durham.

As far as I could tell, I was the only Pentax user among 20+ Canon users, a few Nikon, one Leica, one Fuji and a few assorted others.

An interesting experience but one I am not sure I would repeat, getting images that did not contain photographers was certainly a challenge!

For those who know Durham, there will be few surprises in this set.

All taken with the K5IIs + Sigma 10-20

As always C+C welcome










No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Lovely images. 3+5 for me too.

The images are lovely Carl, compositions are great, especially number 8 which is my personal favourite.

There is one thing that although it doesn't spoil them for me I have noticed and that is that the skies are blown in all of them where sky is visible and the exposures look a tad overcooked in the ones where sky isn't visible. I would have dialled these back a stop or so.


Nicola's Apartments, Kassiopi, Corfu

Some cameras, some lenses, some bits 'n' bobs

A very good set and No.8 is excellent.

Best regards

Thanks for your feedback everybody.

David - agreed on the skies - which is a bit strange as most were taken using ND grads and I do not normally blow out skies when using grads.

Really like this set, and the colours you've caught.

3 is my standout

Some of my vaguely better stuff

Its good to see visitors' pictures of Durham. Those of us who live there or nearby recognise all the very familiar locations. For that reason if I have to pick a favourite its got to be #7. Its abstract with a wonderful bokeh of OOF colour, and I haven't clue where this was taken.
As for spending the day with 20+Canon users, a few Nikons and other assorted cameras I always find this fascinating. Our camera club has monthly assignments when we turn up and blitz a location mob handed - and apart from jokey banter no one gives a damn what camera is being used. We are more interested in seeing the results afterwards.

I like these, Durham certainly does look nice
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Shame about the skies Carl. Got some nice views of the "cliche" shots.

Something only becomes a cliche because it looks so fine

I need to update my versions, they are all on film

Very nice set,

I've never been to Durham, but seems a very photogenic place to visit for a days shooting.

Reminds me of my yoof... Happy days! K.
