Having a look at the area as very newto Glos so not 100% atm. But did think about last shoot which was nature (turned portraits by Rich) so how about something different. Anyone know of any events in the next couple of weeks. Wouldn't mind trying urban stuff btw. More thinking needed but please comment to help brainstorm.

When you say urban stuff, what do you have in mind?

I wouldn't mind doing some of the nooks and cranny's around Bristol centre sometime. Go search out some of the older interesting buildings etc. The area around corn street/St Nicks market is cool.

Maybe we could get Rod to meet up with us down there too.

Love the sound of exploring, only just about know the main areas so would be great to do a real explore. Further thought on a main subject how about Urban Industrial. Not sure of the areas but around the M Shed looks good and maybe the general harbour side area. Possible link with the explorer of the nooks and crannys?? Linking up with Rod sounds like a good plan.

One place I do want to grab are those old 70s style flats up on Jacob Wells Rd.. Always thought they'd make for some mad low angle stuff, grainy B&W conversions etc.

Looks good ate, just had a gander on street view and like the block bout half way down. Thinks its called Branden House and has the red front. Looks a bit more accessible and interesting.

What, you mean that same block I linked to on street view in my post above? ;)

Yeap that's the one but didn't load into street view. Think it's time we set a date and just get involved. Off this Friday and then the usual Sunday.

Well watching the weather earlier for the week there is a change in temp with ground frost starting to develop. Might be the chance for a very early morning severn bridge visit as never been or maybe somewhere like Arlingham that you mentioned earlier. Might be good for mist on the water etc. Thoughts???
