2010 Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk

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.

The Lolipop Shop

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.

Keep the room warm

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.

Lighting the Scene

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.

Bird Nest

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.

Cub Scout Day Camp

Last week I was at Cub Scout Day Camp. I spent the week running around with the boys, helping when needed and taking pictures of the week. Monday thru Thursday, I alternated between Dan and John. Two days with each. I did miss John’s bulls eye in archery. That was a Dan day. I saw Dan’s best day shooting BB’s.

The week was non stop. The boys got to build bird houses and feeders, learn about fire safety, flag handling, nature, fishing, basketball, volley ball and plenty of play time. Friday we got to sleep late since we were having the family night and camping.

The week made me remember some of my time in Scouting. It has been a long time since I was a scout, longer than I like to think. I have fond memories of scouting and hope the boys will remember their time as scouts. Even if they don’t remember this week, I took enough pictures to remind them.
