Details

Let's have a day trip in Wuppertal, especially to see what we can photograph in and around the Schwebebahn, a hanging tram which is over 100 years old (first opened in 1901) https://www.schwebebahn.de/geschichte-technik/geschichte/ . We will get on and off the tram, so we can also photograph stations, the streets of Wuppertal, and other interesting places.

While we are photographing, let's think especially about composition - here's a explainer which might get you thinking: https://petapixel.com/2016/09/14/20-composition-techniques-will-improve-photos/

We will meet at 1.15pm, to give us lots of time to explore, and then after a few hours, we will gather in a cafe to see photos and have some refreshments. (Do ignore the end time - we are more flexible than MeetUp allows us to put in the announcement!)

Wupperthal is closer than you might think - for example, a RE leaves Cologne Hbf at 12.21 on the Sunday and arrives in Wuppertal only 35 minutes later.

It might be useful for people to group together and buy day tickets, which could then include the trips on the Schwebebahn.

There's a limit of 25 people on this trip, so please be sure to update your RSVP in good time, should your plans change.

Looking forward to it!
