I'll be going over the two days. As has been mentioned in another thread, It would be good to meet up, even just to say hello, so I'll be at the bottom of the 199 steps around 10am on both days (in case any one wants to throw a few eggs or tomatoes).

It's always good to meet other forum members so if you feel the need to snap something horrible and frightening, I'll be there.

Best regards

There's no chance we'll be early enough on Saturday, but will try to meet up on Sunday. We have two mothers in tow who are quite slow, so will probably leave them behind for a while on the Sunday. They are affectionately known at the "mother ships" as they meander along and we return to them periodically to make sure they aren't up to mischief.
Best regards, John

I'll be there both days John and as a lot of activity is around the 199 steps, we'll be sure to meet up. I'll have the Z and the K3 hanging from a double harness and a similar badged hat aloft.

Try getting the "mother ships" onto the Whitby Gin. The Dolphin is a good central watering hole and they will be well looked after in there.

Best regards

You'll recognise us as the couple with the matching Billingham Hadley Pro bags in black and tan.

I'll keep an eye out John.


Alan, are you still going?

Anyone else planning on being there over the weekend?

Best regards

We were there, but nobody else was around at 10am! So we braved the wind for a while and then retreated for coffee and a breakfast bun.

We'll be back again later today, probably around the abbey this time.
Best regards, John

Not sure how I missed you John. I did see Alan yesterday. Back at home now, left Whitby at 2PM. Indifferent weather today starting with hail stones and a really cold wind.




Best regards

Ah well, we tried! Next time we'll make sure.

This afternoon we returned and enjoyed Dracula at the abbey. Unfortunately no images from there for PU as I was using something else that's been received for review.
Best regards, John

It did get me thinking of what it could be that John was also using alongside Pentax.

Those who frequent the Whitby Goth Festival for photographic purposes (I guess most here!) maybe interested in this item: http://nyenquirer.uk/10020-2/
Don't worry, it's positive.

This has been a bone of contention for several years, there are descendents in Whitby of those buried in the graveyard who find the antics disrespectful, there's also the issue of some of the gravestones been rather unsafe and fears one may topple over and injure someone (or worse) Of course it's the same minority of togs and models year after year causing the problems.

And that's a rather good shot of myself and my good wife Gary, although you might have told me my cravat was loose

After the weekend I had a few things loose Alan. There are parts of me that are not as wind proof as I thought.

Best regards
