Meetup details changed: Seek Ye A Photowalk? 4th Annual Sherwood Forest Faire

From: Joe L.
Sent on: Friday, March 1, 2013 7:43 PM

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
http://www.houstonphotowalks.com/events/103428612/


Final Update:

Gonna be a bright Sunny blue-sky WONDERFUL photography kinda day tomorrow, the temps will hover in the upper 50's to lower 60's most of the daylight day.  Great day for a sweater or hoodie.

Most direct route from Houston is via 290.  Check their web site for full directions and a printable PDF.  From Central Houston on a Saturday AM, it will take about 2 hours.

Let's meetup for lunch about 11:30a near the Greenwoode Theatre.  There's a couple of places nearby to get food, like the Lettuce Inn.  They sell Turky Legs, Chili, Chicken Gumbo, Sausage on a Stick -- and other things that will shorten your lifespan.

The Lettuce Inn is directly left when you first walk in the entrance, past the first aid station, past the pee pee station, past the beer vendor.  Or grab food anywhere else that meets your fancy.  There should be places for us to sit near/at the Greenwoode Theatre.  If not, we'll end up somewhere else, keep an eye out for a gathering, I'll have Marty and Alex with me.

Here is a pictorial map of the actual fairgrounds: http://www.sherwoodforestfaire.com/wp-content/uploads/2013_SWFF_Map_web.jpg

I suggest bringing at least one telephoto lens along with you, they keep the spectators a bit far away from the actual jousting.  Guess they don't want anyone to get their eye poked out?  :)

Camera tip for this trip: its going to be very Sunny, but the location is under a heavy canopy of green trees.  You might be tempted to use "Auto" or "Sunny" White Balance, but those who took our White Balance class will tell you this is a good day to make use of the grey card or ExpoDisc!

See you tomorrow!
