Lassen to Mammoth Lakes

Like Yosemite the road through Lassen National park was closed with 4 miles of 3-4m high packed snow still to clear.  Our journey from Tahoe took us through Quincy and Lassen before reaching Mount Shasta.  From here we headed south via Carson City, Virginia City to Mammoth Lakes.

City Photo Walk – Barbican

The Saturday Stroll is a bit like the City Walk except we do it on a Saturday morning. The strolls will be around specific areas of the City and will last a couple of hours. It may end with a coffee or a drink in a pub.

The walks are free to members and those interested should book with a club steward by providing their email and mobile number.

 Saturday Stroll  – Saturday 18 March 2017 – Barbican

This is an opportunity to capture the architectural features of the iconic Barbican both interior and exterior.  We will meet at 10.00AM outside Barbican; the nearest tube stations are Barbican and Moorgate. Click HERE for more location information.

Autumn Colours at Kew Gardens and Waterlow Park, Highgate

Autumn; the veil that tries to protect us from winter.

Both of these walks were led by the inestimable Robert Canis, the first on behalf of Kew Gardens and the second for London branch of The Royal Photographic Society Breathing London programme.  Rob introduced many of the group to the techniques of intended camera movement and multiple exposure; an experience enjoyed by all.

City Photo Walk Chinatown to Piccadilly

The evening promised opportunities for night photography, long exposures and a drink at the end; we were not disappointed.  We met outside Fiori Restaurant in Cranbourne Street beside Leicester Square tube station and made our way to the entrance of Chinatown at Gerrard Street.  From here we crossed into Brewer Street and Soho before finding our way into Golden Square and Piccadilly.  The evening was rounded off at The Red Lion near Jermyn Street.

Hidden London – Euston Tunnels

When the Victoria line was built in the 60s a number of surplus pedestrian tunnels were taken out of service as the whole of Euston Station was rebuilt.  They are still used for storage and more recently have been opened for Hidden London Tours.  They lack the history of Down Street Station but provide a visual history of underground advertising in the 60s.

City Photo Walk – Canary Wharf

We met at the Piazza at the western exit of Canary Wharf Tube Station and walked through  Jubilee Park to view the construction of the Canary Wharf extension at Wood Wharf before returning along a terrace overlooking South Quay. Walking through another construction area on the north side of Middle Dock to Westferry Circus we caught a view of the sun setting over the Thames before having a drink in at Corney and Barrow on North Dock.

Down Street Station, London, W1

Down Street in Mayfair was a tube station between 1907 and 1932 when it was closed due to lack of passengers; the locals clearly too posh to use public transport.  During WW2 it was used for cabinet meetings prior to work being completed on the Cabinet War Rooms under Whitehall.  When the Cabinet moved out it was taken over by the Railway Executive Committee who ran the movement of goods and people from this safe bunker.

TfL would like to let the space but in the meantime they are running tours revealing to the public for the first time how life was in this illustrious but secret station.  If you fancy a tour find your credit card and book HERE.

A wider history of the station can be found HERE.
