Liverpool Lomo Meetup in February


It has been a long time since I harassed all you Northern Lomo geeks for a meetup so I feel that now would be a suitable time to get on it. Let’s do Liverpool in February.

Credits: kneehigh85

So, as I stated in my blog entry recently “I have forgotten what you all look like”, and I can’t really remember the last proper meet up we had here in the North of England. Well I can, it was Blackpool in June. Anyway, after putting the feelers out people seem to have decided that February in Liverpool would be a good idea. I therefore think we should all meet in Liverpool Lime Street station at 12pm on Saturday 22 February. The National Rail website doesn’t exactly make it clear but there appears to be a pub so I guess we congregate in there initially.

If there is anyone from Liverpool who could actually show us around and that kind of thing then please come forward as I know very very little about the place! If anyone has any further comments or suggestions then feel free to leave a comment below this article. And invite newbies along as we don’t want our group size to dwindle – I am aiming for at least 15 people present this trip.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see all of you there.

    Me and my fella @pigdog were going to come - but we are from Leeds too so would be up for more Yorkshire based activities if it works out better that way.

    Hey y'all, is this still going down, I'm from Liverpool and would love to walk around with some other lomographers. I don't do much Lomo here, the development is terribad here, but I'm more keen to bring the Holga out and meet new people :)

    Morning. It's been ages since I took my LCA out, and I've sadly never used my Diana so I'm up for a walk n shoot.

    kneehigh85 ·

    Hey @spudhead1uk I am trying to figure out if we should continue to Liverpool as planned (maybe just in one car though so we can all chip for petrol). There is me, you, Adam and Lou coming from here. Also @marthasmarvels and @pigdog are coming but obviously as they are Yorkshire based then they could do somthing local. Then there is @petecarr and @mike-brits who are both in liverpool so it would be nice to meet them if they are deffo planning to come with. Also I haven't had a reply from @jennysparkle (get your arse in gear lady!) to see if her and her fella are coming too. Can anyone help me formulate a plan ASAP!
