Story Bridge Photo Shoot and Coffee/Breakfast Meet Up

16 Aug @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

Citroen Club drive and Story Bridge photoshoot

 

Breakfast/Coffee under the Story Bridge

Date: …..Sunday 16 August

Venue;… Meet Under Story Bridge. Refer to the map below.

Time:…. 7am or earlier or as soon as you can arrive.

Purpose of outing : Geoffrey Webber will be in Brisbane over the weekend of 15/16 August and wants to capture some action shots for his next publication, Citroens in Australia, from 1920 to 2020   Your classic Citroens driving across the Story Bridge will make excellent subjects. President Adrian has reminded me that the Story Bridge has recently celebrated 80 years. All Citroen models are invited and particularly some colourful Tractions would make ideal subjects from that same era. As it will be a perfect sunny Sunday morning at that time, it will be a good outing for club members and an opportunity for some to show off their cars. Suggest we meet up under the Story Bridge before or around 7am in the park where the original Tri-Club display used to assemble in the 1980s.

Good coffee and croissants here!

The plan would be for cars to assemble and then do a few slow convoy round trips from the southern end over the bridge and back to provide more than just one opportunity for photos. An early start would avoid traffic and early sunlight is the most effective. Later arrivals could still do the photo drive over as each circuit will finish back under the Bridge until exercise is completed. In terms of safety, Drivers will be advised to use their own discretion depending on traffic in front or behind to go slow for the photographers positioned on the eastern footpath side on Bridge.

 

 

 

Bring your good camera

Members with good cameras could also shoot from their cars if possible please. Drive and Picnic Afterwards: Optional; Members could reassemble, return to the coffee shop under the bridge and/or we could drive on to Redcliffe, say for a Fish and Chips lunch/picnic BYO by the water.

A RSVP form and phone number will be provided nearer the event.
