So what does a photographer do with his day off?

What could be better than just going off with some light hearted friends to take photos just for fun!

And if you want to take a my short photographic visit to the Don between Cockbridge and Blythnie as I photographed for the Don in a Day Project, come with me … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJcUkeIKrMs

The Diverse Don

Well if there is a ‘good cause’ behind it that is even better. So this weekend I set of to join the Don Diversity Collective on a bit of a photographic ramble up the River Don from Alford.

The Diverse Don

I had already pledged my support to their aims and ambitions for although it’s partly about photography the key thing is that it’s to draw in many different people to use photography to celebrate the River Don.

The Diverse Don

“Don Diversity Collective is an independent community group who are planning to run photographic exhibitions featuring the River Don. As a collective group they are offering practical photographic help and advice to members who might want to exhibit.

The Diverse Don

The group is open to everyone, regardless of ability, experience or equipment and has several highly competent and friendly photographers on hand to help out.

The Diverse Don

Regular picnic outings are planned along the course of the Don so anyone can come and meet new friends and develop their photography to ‘friendly exhibition status.

The Diverse Don

Our aim is to encourage the widest possible participation in a celebration of the river Don through photography”.
Well said!

The Diverse Don

So from my point of view well worth supporting and if Sunday is anything to judge from there are more great adventures to come.

Special thanks to James Kerr (no relation) from the River Don Salmon Fishery Board who was our Guide and font of knowledge and also to Lesley Bilton Cruikshank who is co-ordinating the project.

Did I forget to say, but the dogs enjoyed themselves too!
