Welcome to the 'I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos' Blog

At least once a month we get out as a group on an organised outing of some description, and being a group of people who enjoy taking photos we usually come home with a very interesting and generally appealing selection of photos.  This blog is a record of where we have been and the photos we took at the time.

Wardsend Cemetery

On Sunday morning, 22nd Feb we took a spooky walk around Wardsend Cemetery for our second outdoor outing of 2015.  It was a little cold and a bit grey which as it happens is the ideal weather for graveyard photography. Here are some of the photos that our members came home with.

Walk Around Park Hill Flats

January 2015 - Urban Splash are now most of the way through the redevelopment of Park Hill Flats and there is now only 1 of the 5 phases left to be redeveloped, so we saw this as our last opportunity to have a look around what was left of the original streets in the sky.   We met on what was a chilly but sunny morning at the top of the amphitheatre behind the train…

Halloween in Whitby

For our November photo walk we decided to make an extra special journey to the east coast to take in the wonders of Whitby during Halloween weekend.  We met some very interesting people and took some amazing photos (if we do say so ourselves!).  Much credit to the folks who came dressed in all sorts out outstanding outfits, and thank you to all who let us point our cameras at them.  This really was street…

Sutton Scarsdale Hall

June 2014 - As a group this was our second visit to Sutton Scarsdale hall, the shell of an imposing stately home in Derbyshire, but a few new faces meant we could all see the old place from a fresh perspective.  Here are a selection of the photos we came home with.

Humber Bridge

January 2014 - After our early start to Cleethorpes paid off with some stunning photos we decided to head back to the east coast to capture another sunrise, this time through the magnificent Humber Bridge. Unfortunately the weather wasn't so kind this time around and we never actually saw the sun, so we had to make do with some misty long-exposures instead. Here are some of our snaps from that wet morning.   The Humber…

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

January 2013 - Our first outing in 2013 was a gentle stroll around the beautiful Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
