PHOTOWALK – King George Dock, Hull (Tues 4 June, 8pm, weather permitting) using the public walkway alongside the dock (note: lots of stairs) with lots of maritime activity to photograph.

Godwit sculpture

We’ll meet in the public carpark on the dock (search: https://w3w.co/hatch.jelly.taps) just beyond the giant Godwit sculpture.

The trip will coincide with the daily departure of the P&O Hull to Rotterdam ferry at 8.30pm. There’s a walk along the docks (and back) and sunset that night is scheduled at 21:24.

Reminder about Club Competition:  1. Landscape 2. Black & White, and 3. Nature.

A competition to find the best photograph in each of the above categories will be decided by those attending the Hedon Viewfinders meeting on Wednesday 12 June 2019.

Those wishing to enter the competition should submit their photographs (one in each category) by 5pm on Monday 10 June. Your image should be sent to email viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk by that date/time. The title of the image and your name should be included in the email, but the photograph should not have any watermarks or anything that would identify you as the photographer.

Members entering the competition should attend on the night to see all the photographs which will be projected on the big screen. They can join other members present in voting for their best images on the voting slip provided.

Graffiti Hunt – Hull Urban Street Art Photowalk – Sat 15 Sept 2018

We are meeting on Humber Dock Marina at Humber Street at 11.00am and we’ll be taking part in a walk that takes us across Hull’s Old Town and eventually leading up to Bankside/Wincolmlee. And aim to end the walk with refreshments at the Whalebone pub.

WHETHER you call it street art, urban art, guerrilla art or graffiti art, there is no denying that such art forms have become acceptable with permission being granted in some places in Hull to create it. On Saturday 15 September 2018 Hedon Viewfinders is going to go on a Graffiti Hunt to see what all the fuss is about!

With the ever-changing nature of this art form we can almost guarantee that there will be something different to see this week than last week.

ALL WELCOME – you don’t have to be a ‘member’. It’s a free, fun and friendly walk with enthusiastic photographers.

We’ll aim to go ahead in all but the worst weather.

“Blue Thursday” TONIGHT to celebrate 70 years of the NHS

To mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, historic buildings and other high profile sites across Hull City Centre will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July. #NHS70 #LightUpBlue

SHORT NOTICE… but still worth a visit to Hull City Centre TONIGHT (Thursday 5 July) with our cameras.

Fancy a trip into Hull tonight for “BLUE THURSDAY”?

Whilst some might politically challenge the colour chosen to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, buildings, historic monuments and other high profile sites across the country will be ‘lighting up’ blue on the evening of Thursday, 5 July.

NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group has joined forces with Hull City Council to bathe several of Hull’s recognisable monuments in blue light.

Includes:

  • Fountains in Queen Victoria Square
  • Maritime Museum
  • City Hall
  • Hull Minster
  • Solar Gate
  • Queen Victoria statue in Queen Victoria Square
  • Andrew Marvell statue
  • Ferens Art Gallery

This is a great opportunity for photography. People can join up with Hedon Viewfinders; meeting at Hull Pier (outside the Minerva pub) at 9:15pm to capture the sunset, and then have the stroll alongside the Marina to Queen Victoria Square for 9:45pm’ish.

People are encouraged to share their photos via social media using the hashtags: #NHS70 and #LightUpBlue.

Photos taken on Hedon Viewfinders visit to town in April.
