    Well back I'm back from the first day of the most recent UK meetup, good fun was had by all, we spent most of the day wandering around in the drizzle taking photos of each other or in the pub, again taking photos of each other :lol:.

    Louise my girlfriend came along as well and as of 5 minutes ago is a full member of TPF (Lil Loui) so expect us to be posting images from the weekend as soon as I've edited them from RAW format.

    The best bit of the day? 7 of us standing outside the Australia shop in Covent Garden with telephoto lenses trained on the door waiting for Louise to emerge, soon enough we attracted a crowd of bewildered onlookers all asking who we were waiting to photograph. Someone then mentioned Kylie and things soon got out of hand, with a crowd looking very dissapointed when we all let loose with the flashguns on Louise as she stepped out of the door and then all walked away. :lmao:

    first one then, this was just after Plasticspanner started getting some shifty looks from a policeman with a sub machine gun outside Downing Street due to him taking close-ups of their guns.

    I think they wanted to keep an eye on him after that.

    I'm sure a mod can move this into the gallery if they want, may as well use this thread though, as otherwise it gets confusing - especially when everyone else gets to their computers and start to upload.

    Hi all.

    Well it was a good day out. Minimal rain, lots of walking, and drawing attention to ourselves.

    I suspect one of two photos will appear of the "TPF papparazzi" waiting outside a shop and drawing a sizable crowd of onlookers thinking someone famous was inside !

    I'll be posting a few in here soon so watch this thread.
