Historical & Cultural

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.

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 station and then slowly walked down and back up the frontage before venturing into the concrete skyways. Most of the flats are boarded up now which gave it a lot of atmosphere, albeit a much different feel to when 1000 people lived there.  We talked a lot about 'leading lines' whilst taking our photos, so hopefully you will see a few in our selection of shots.

There is a section at the bottom of this page for comments if you have any feedback, let us know what you think of our photos.

The Charity

About our chosen charity: 

The Children's Hospital Charity

The Children's Hospital, Sheffield is one of only 4 stand-alone children’s hospitals in the UK. The charity’s role is to provide over and above the standard NHS provision, enhancing the hospital and matching world class equipment with existing world class expertise.

Our hospital is a Centre of Excellence in many areas. Over 245,000 patient journeys are made to our hospital a year, helping children from our region, the UK and worldwide to receive the best care possible.

Our current Make it Better appeal, is to transform the children’s hospital as we know it. We aim to raise £10 million regionally by 2016 so we can create an environment which helps our children get better more quickly, with privacy to recover from painful surgeries. We want to provide world-class facilities with the world-class expertise already provided.

Ways to donate:

Online using this Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/tekathon2014

Cash on the day in the charity buckets

Buy a print at the exhibition

Fundraising target:

£414 - That's just £1 for each member of the Facebook group (as at 15/07/2014)

 

More Details

The walk (route here) will take roughly 2 hours to get around and since it will be entirely within Sheffield city centre it will be pushchair/wheelchair friendly and very easy going.  We have planned regular stops at interesting locations with insights into Sheffield's history provided along the way.

Everyone is welcome to take part; all skill levels and the more the better. Remember this is for a good cause and as with all of our outings you will have the opportunity to get to know and learn from other photographers whilst you tek you photos.

For those wanting to contribute their photos for the exhibition you will have until 19th October (2 weeks after the walk) to email your full sized photo files to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  There is no limit to the number of photos you submit.  You will receive a reply to your photo email with details of where to send your payment of the £1.50 per print, preferably by bank transfer but cash can be arranged if you prefer.  The printing itself will be taken care of by the team, we are hoping that by doing all our printing in one order we can negotiate a better rate, any money left over will be put towards the donations target.

We will work with the cafe to try to make sure that you are informed about any sales of your photos, if any of your prints are unsold at the close of the exhibition they will be yours to collect and keep.

Any questions, comments or suggestions please post in the comments below or the forum/facebook group.

 

Final Request!

Please share this with everyone you know!  Our fundraising target is high and it's for a great cause.  The sharing buttons below will help you to spread the word on facebook, twitter and Google+.

Thank you for your support!

Wyming Brook

July 2014 - Despite a chilly and slightly rainy start to the morning we had a very successful trek through the slightly tricky footing of Wyming Brook.  Spectacular scenery and stunning water flowing through the brook were the rewards on offer.  

Here are a few of the snaps...

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.

Wortley Top Forge

May 2014 - By special arrangement the group was provided exclusive access to Wortley Top Forge, an industrial museum based in a 17th Centure Iron Forge.  We were treated to a personal tour by the volunteers plus tea and biscuits, then we were left to wander around the facsinating buildings taking photos as we went along.

For more about Wortley Top Forge and their event schedules visit their website here.  They are also running a photography contest which may be of interest.

Below are a few of our best photos from the day.

Langsett Reservoir

February 2014 - It's been a few months since we had a good old fashioned walk outdoors so we set a date and met up for a walk around Langsett Reservoir. It didn't rain much but it was dull and cloudy and extremely windy, but at least we got to walk a few miles and meet a few new people along the way.

Here are a few of the photos we took on that windy winter Sunday morning.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

January 2013 - Our first outing in 2013 was a gentle stroll around the beautiful Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We managed to spend a fairly decent amount of time out and about until the rain came along and put and end to the photography, fortunately YSP also has a nice coffee shop!
