Lancaster Outdoor Meet 5th Aug 2021

A brief reminder that we have an outdoor shoot in Lancaster tomorrow evening – meet outside the Maritime Museum at 7;30 pm. The weather forecast isn’t brilliant – but the cobbles near the castle photograph well when they’re wet 🙂 On street parking on St George’s Quay (or, if you don’t want to drive all round the one-way sysyem, on street parking on Lune Street and walk across the Millenium Bridge) – do look at the signs to check the areas that are resident parking only.
