I was out last night for dinner with a friend from England I’d never met before. After the meal I got talking with Darrell (not the fried from England I’d never met before, he was someone else) about the projects idea. We then got chatting about night pictures and my lack of luck with some I’d taken earlier in the week. That led us onto the all important public safety aspect of walking round a city at night with £500+ of camera gear and how we’d love to do it, but well, you know….. the whole rob, murder, death, kill, thing might get in the way*
Well, suffice to say that gave birth to the “Night Project”. So, who’s interested in a group of us meeting in the evening for a couple of hours in the centre of Belfast to go take photos of some of the nice things there are round there? I’d suggest waiting a few weeks yet until the early evening is properly night like (where do I find out sunset times for the next few weeks people!?). The plan would be we go take photos for an hour or two, then head to a local pub/coffee shop/pizza place and have some beer/coffee/pizza and upload some photos onto a handy laptop thingy for a squizz.
Film people could of course come along and grumble about technology and the importance of a good dark room and such.
Hell, given my ability with my dSLR I reckon people with disposable cameras will get as much out of it as me, but it could be a giggle!
So, you interested?
*Note, for perspective tourists Belfast is a lovely city (seriously) and it’s quite safe. Certainly safer than a lot of other major cities in the world. After all we tend not to annoy foreigners, being too busy having a go at the people from the estate across the road.
