Rookwood open day Photos

    The open day was amazingly great!  I had a lot of fun and learnt so much.  Everyone was friendly and up for a chat.  There was so much to see and do, I was there from 9:15am to 2:30pm and I didn't get to do everything.

    I'll write a popper post about the day later, when I have time.  But for now enjoy a selection of the 298 pictures I took.

    All the photos below were taken with an iPhone 4S by me.  So some are low quality, but most are decent.  The photos are in the order I took them, I don't have time to sort or group them properly.

    As always click on the pictures to enlarge them.

    By now my phone only had 20% battery left.  So I stopped taking photos incase I needed to call someone.


    As always with my pictures I encourage others to use these pictures how and where they like.  All I ask is that you do not claim them as your own, and give the appropriate credite if possible.
