A city without (car) traffic -> Car Free Sunday 2013

  • This location is shown only to members

Update

We will be a large group this time, photo enthusiasts with a wide range of experience and skill levels. We also will be happy to welcome plenty Happy Shuttercounts which are new to our meetup group.

The weather will be fair, our walk will last around two to three hours with plenty of opportunities for interesting pictures. And - don't forget, it's also about learning and sharing. Be curious and ask - if asked, share your knowledge and explain. After the walk we  may get together for an review and drink.

The theme for our walk

Signs and Symbols

Our theme for this walk are signs and symbols. You will find them everywhere, not necessarily only as traffic signs. Watch out for them. Take great pictures. Be creative.

Signs and Symbols are not your thing? Feel free to find your own which is matching your visual interest or just get inspired from what is happening around you.

Weather

I will be overcast and dry tomorrow with temperatures up to 20C (!) -> no hard shadows!

What else?

Put your camera manual in your bag just in case you have questions to the settings ;-)

The rough plan

We will meet at "A" and have our walk in the aereas marked in red (depending on  where the interesting things are happening) 




General information about the Car Free Sunday:

The public transport like busses and tram will operate. The STIB and De Lijn will be free of charge on that day.

The Car Free Sunday will be valid for everybody, except taxis, journey buses, assistance services, police and persons with a special permit. Vehicles authorized to circulate in Brussels during this day will have to respect the maximal speed of 30 kilometres per hour. The whole Brussels Region will be closed for traffic from 9:00 till 19:00.

    Thanks to everybody and special thanks to Claus.

    I think if we can shoot from some of the car tunnels around the city, these could be interesting shots.
