in July I went on an organised photowalk – 20 of use following the same route and taking lots of photos then finishing up in  a bar to chat and look at the back of cameras (and there was a lot of conversation heavy in numbers – lens, exposure etc).

Really interesting to see what other people focus on, how they set up shots etc.  Here are my favs from the 140 that I took.  All have had some photoshop work on them.

I had to wait quite a while for some empty space around the bollards














Princes Street gardens have long rows of benches – loved the tunnel effect

This is my favourite – and it looks much better sepia than colour.  A typical sight in the gardens – lots of people use the grass to sit and read.

Just realised all of these are looking down – I did take a whole lot looking up as well – I need to go through and pull out a set of those ones.

I like the looking down view though- it's a good one.

Well done, Helena. I think my favorite is the park bench. :o)

Wow! You got some really nice photos there, Helena. The one I like best is the feet walking the bike.
