IWDIG Getting Ready For Trip To London

We now have a minibus full of photographers for our Isle of Wight Digital Imaging Group sociable and practical, photography-based walk through the streets of London, on 24th January 2013.


The main purpose of our trip is to visit some art galleries. But as we stroll through the heart of London, photographers will be able to capture their own portfolio of fascinating photos along the way.

And to put your images into context, Amanda will no doubt put together a tour guide and share historic notes from the streets along the way.
