Taking my life in my hands and heading ‘up north’ (well, not as north as some of you) to spend a few days with my good friend @Steel-eye in Sheffield. We’re planning as much flying as possible - and as the weather permits. Looking forward to wide open, NFZ-free spaces.
Hope the natives will be friendly to a southerner in their midst.
Some great places in Bradford, Kashmir isn’t what it used to be but still worth a visit for the history of the place, we’ve been using My Lahore recently, suits all tastes and the kids like the milkshakes
Thanks for the idea, @BCF. Mouth is watering already.
Made a trip to Bradford years ago, specifically to visit what was then the Museum of Photography (is it still there?). Arrived on a Monday only to find it was closed all day Mondays! I can still feel the frustration all this time later.
Completely off the topic of drones but if your interested in shooting or ever just wanted to try it you should spend an hour at this place in Barnsley.
Was down that way on a training course and went to the “try shoot” one night.
Great experience! The owner is ex forces and you get a good chat, firearm safety lecture then get to fire a semi auto rifle with holographic sight at turning targets.
3 round bursts from ready on his command and you only have 1.5s of the target being exposed.
If I’m ever back down that way I’d go back in a heartbeat.
None at the moment. Many years ago, and I mean many years ago, my work colleagues and I had a group outing once a month to Bradford specifically for the curries but to be honest I can’t remember which ones we went to - probably as a result of the beers we drank too. I haven’t been there for quite a while now.
+1 for Saltaire - especially with a stills camera at night but equally good for drone flying around the mills and along the river. One of my images in my ‘A’ level photography course I did a few years ago was the mills at night.
