Last Saturday (24 July) was the 2010 Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk.?? This was the third annual walk.? I walked with about 40 others in Jonesborough, TN.? It was a hot Saturday morning but I had a blast.? Last year I walked in Abingdon, VA.
This year there were over 1100 walks with more than 33,000 people walking.? A real day of documenting what was happening around the world.
I really enjoy photo walks.? It’s as much about meeting new people as it is about the photography.? I had some great conversations including one with a girl who is getting married in about a month.? We discussed her experience hiring a wedding photographer.? How knowing about photography made the experience different.? This may be the subject of a future post.
Did I come away with any great images, probably not.? Did I come away with images that I like, certainly.? BTW, let me know if you want to buy any.
After looking at my images, and thinking about Jonesborough, I processed several images with an old style.
The above image makes me thing of the long walk to school.
What a way to make a nest for birds.
I would really like to encourage everyone to go on a photo walk.? It’s lots of fun and you can learn something from your fellow photographers.? Thanks to Scott Kelby for organizing the walk and to Richard Siggins for organizing the local walk.? Below is the group photo taken by Richard.
I’m ready for next year.
