Lets play spot the wild campers.....


Although P3 took this in 16:9 a little crop fixed that.  I will need to check the settings for photos as I hate 16:9.





Taken with Osmo Pocket 3.

I've got to say DA you've got a keen eye for spotting those wild campers.  Nice shot.   Maybe it will get too cold for them soon and they'll give up on that wild camping.

The blue tent looked like the one on the football pitch 7 miles up the road that was moved on before the fireworks display.

No,  they have gone from there.    Although the casino is now closed due to the concrete roof.

They were having the roof re covered and after they got it stripped of they discovered it was RAC so they've closed much to the people that had bookings disgust.

The legacy of post-war jerry-building.

I was chatting with a friend of mine who's in the building trade and he seems to think that the people using it knew it only had a 30 year life and that it was a lot cheaper and would be someone else's problem later on.

The people that squat in your area aren't to picky about the quality of their location.

Maybe they just wanted to be close to the theater.    I still think the cold weather will put a halt to a lot of the wild campers.

I have tried that a couple of times and nothing happens.  I wonder if they use earplugs due to the daft locations they setup in.

That's funny. I have used earplugs when camping.

I wouldn't think it would be comfortable at all but I guess it beats the price of renting a room or flat or house.  That's a bit too much "roughing it" for me.

It does pose a lot of questions about that life style.

It certainly does.  First question would be hygiene related.

I was thinking something very similar.  Seems they are reverting back to the days when cavemen roamed the earth.

At least they are not having camp fires in most of these places.
