Drop me Off in London: Photo 101Rehab Visits Eclectic Corner

When I arrived at Amsterdam Central station last Tuesday, my plan was to catch the next train to the city of The Hague. I didn’t; I was instead tele-transported to London with the help of the Dutch Railways’ marketing people. On the spot I met the QueenBetty, her loyal guards and some policemen. One of them was playing piano so beautifully, and almost made me miss my train.

Well, as I was in London, I headed to  the Eclectic Corner Event – Street Life, Photography and Writing -, from my lovely friend Justine at her blog Eclectic Odds n Sods.  Although the dull effect of fluorescent lights was strong, the story prevailed, and I made some more shots for her event.

The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is an event for everyone who loves photography, and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with. All you need to bring is your passion. Just so you know, mine is to shoot portraits and street photography.

Some of you asked me if only photographers can join the Photo Rehab… Of course not. Hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious about photography, anyone is welcome. What are you waiting for? Check below what you need to do to join us.

Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.
