A slightly different event this time. This is an exhibition at the Watts Gallery at Compton, and is about Victorians and their photographs. Not a picture-taking opportunity, therefore, but an interesting insight into photographic history. The event has already started, but continues until 13th November 2016.
From a photographic point of view, the Prudential Ride London-Surrey event on 30th and 31st July certainly offer plenty of opportunities to capture all manner of emotive shots. And, with up to 100km for the cyclists to ride, you will have quite a choice of places to set up shop. Visit the PRLS web site for details.
For one day a year, the Mid Hants Railway Line, otherwise known as the Watercress Line, is opened up to a sponsored walk. Although the objective is to raise money for conservation, it offers an unusual opportunity for shots of the line and surrounding countryside from otherwise impossible angles. Their website has more information.
If you want an idea for your child over the summer holiday, how about one of Lillian Spibey's photography courses? Unfortunately, the one on Tuesday 26th is already sold out, but Wednesday 27th July still has spaces.
Based on my children's experience, I can heartily recommend the courses, and am sure much fun will be had.
