After meeting in Cafe Libanais on Saturday morning, eight intrepid photographers donned their waterproofs and, armed with carrier bags for camera protection, braved the rain with conversation running along the lines of "you get such good reflections when it's raining" and "you get better images than when it is just a flat, grey day".
Our walk took us from Duke of York Square down the King's Road to Chelsea Town Hall, where some were lucky enough to see a bridal party emerging into the rain - well, by then, drizzle. A coffee stop was much appreciated and some members of the group were deeplly into technical conversations about their kit. Visits by some to the gallery next door proved a great hit and after another hour we gathered at World's End before heading to Brompton Cemetery.
By that time, the rain had stopped and those who had not been to the Cemetery before were entranced by it: even the enticement of lunch couldn't drag them away...
We were a smaller group than usual as some of the Street members had decided to brave the crowds at the Lord Mayor's Show - and our normal street guru, Norman, was on holiday. However, those who came seemed to enjoy their day. From a personal point of view, it was great to welcome and enjoy the company of Der Mits from the Swiss Chapter, as well as our regular street walkers and members new to the group.
Our forthcoming events are posted on the RPS Events page - why not join us for a visit to Colombia Road next month?
