Next Saturday, 12 August, at 4pm, talented local photographer Matt Savage and I are hosting an Instameet in Winchester, Hampshire. It’s one of a series of meet-ups of Instagram users taking place across the South West that day, organised by The Southern Collective. Similar events are taking place in Wells, Exeter and Cardiff, and on the Isle of Purbeck.
We’re meeting in front of the West Door of Winchester Cathedral and, after a quick group photo, we’ll take a leisurely stroll for about an hour and a half around photogenic parts of the city, and the tranquil water meadows on the south side of the city. There might well be an ice cream van along the way; we’ll head off for a drink near the cathedral after the walk.
The event is completely free, so pull on some comfortable walking shoes, bring along your DSLR or just your smartphone, have fun and make friends with the people behind some of the profiles you follow.
If you’re a Facebook user, sign up for this event so you get a reminder in your news feed. To whet your appetite, I’ll be sharing images of Winchester on my Instagram travel feed, @3dbrenton, this week.
To recap: meet Matt and me at the West Front of Winchester Cathedral (Google Map) at 4pm next Saturday, 12 August – we’ll try to make ourselves obvious. See you there!
