    Re: Visit London and its Vicinity

    Hi, Andrew: A nice website, need read it thoroughly! I plan to bring a 5x4 (not a 4x5) with a 47mm XL lens and a T 400mm lens. Leave my 12x20 at home. It should be okay in early morning, less crowded? Is it worth visiting Bath or Cotswolds?

    Randy: good to know! Thanks!

    I loved my month there for Y2K, so many great museums, good pubs. I ate excellent Indian food for dinner

    I also spotted a 3 child set of Artful Dodgers at work. Very fast. Running. Bump, snatch, pass and gone. Best crew I ever saw.

    Maybe not close vicinity but London has several airports which can get you to many parts of Europe in a very little time often for dirt cheap prices. If you organize things correctly you could go somewhere interesting in the early morning and be back the same day.

    Thanks, will check the airplane tickets. I checked the bullet train from London to Paris, the tickets are very expensive in USA standard.

    Both are fascinating. I used to live near Bath many years ago - amazing architecture. The Cotswolds are pretty but you will need a car to explore them thoroughly. You wll find plenty on line about both. The Royal Photographic Society recently moved from Bath to Bristol where it has a new centre. Plenty to do/see/photograph in the west country but I would say that you need time for them.

    I have been in and out (for many years) I tend to go for smaller Cameras, most recently a Belair 6 x 12, I have further 'projects' in mind but they'll likely be with either a Canon 7 RF or a Yashica TLR, I'm intending to avoid tripod use

    You can always pm me to discuss per se

    I used Fuji rangefinders and fast film that could be developed locally back then, i.e. Ilford XP-2 Super.

    May tomorrow be a better day.

    Was there last year in May, expect grey skys. A trip to Hampstead Heath is worth it, including Kenwood House. The Highgate cemerty is apparently worth a look to if you like that sort of thing. The camera museum in London is a fun spot to grab a coffee. Kew Garden is nice as is a trip out to Greenwich (has a camera obscura).
    Cheers Shane

    I visited Honiley in Warwickshire and midlands areas around it. It's about 90 minutes from Heathrow airport. Motoring history was my reason but I enjoyed long walks with my medium format camera along quiet paths and fields too. An hour to the east was Bletchley park of WW-II and computing fame. The rural areas would be great for LF photography if you like that sort scenery. It's a lot more varied and interesting than US farmland in my opinion.
