    About his photography, David says: "I have been involved with photography since the early 1970's. After a very brief flirtation with colour slides, I started using black and white film with the intention of printing my own work. Over the years I have used nearly all the available conventional B&W films, including Kodak Tri-x, Ilford HP5, FP4, Pan-F, Fuji, Acros, etc, and Kodak Infra-red film. With my work I strive to make an interpretive image as opposed to just recording what is in front of the camera. I take that approach through into the darkroom with my printing, where I try to create images that are suggestive rather than descriptive. Since the early 1980s’ my work has regularly been accepted in national and international salons, and in 2000, I achieved a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS) in the Visual Arts section, with a panel of twenty monochrome darkroom prints".

    Meet at the Monks Kitchencafe (entrance near the cathedral west door) at 10am then wander at leisurebefore meeting again for lunch - venue to be decided that morning. Two obviouslocations are the cathedral, both interior and exterior, plus the docks area -but there is a great deal of interesting ‘street life’ in-between. Otherhistoric sites include the four ancient priories of St Oswalds, Greyfriars,Blackfriars and Llanthony and there are also plenty of interesting newdevelopments in the central area: Kings Square and College Green have certainlychanged recently. Most locations and car parks are marked on the map below. 

    This outing is linked tothe Monday 22 August meeting when members can present their choice of prints(unmounted or mounted) from photographs taken on the day - suggested number ofprints presented to be decided during the outing. 

    If the outing date is notconvenient but you would still like to take part then perhaps visit the cityone day in June and bring some prints on the August evening.
