I went out with seven other members of the ilkley flickr group last weekend. We met at costa coffee and then for a jaunt by the river. it was great to meet up with them and proves that internet groups can transform beyond the virtual.

Becks turned up with a long home made tube with an old camera taped to the end of it. She poked her SLR down the other end to capture the images from the viewfinder.

I just love this creative experimentation and it certainly led becks to see subjects in a completely different way – particularly some of the very close up subjects. The fact that the camera is on the end of a tube and looking at 90 degrees to your face leads to some unexpected discoveries.
