5th Annual World Wide Photowalk

Scott Kelby’s 5th Annual World Wide Photowalk is coming on Oct 13. It you are in east Tennessee, join me in Elizabethton at 4:00 PM for my walk. If you live in other areas, go to the World Wide Photowalk website, worldwidephotowalk.com and find a walk near you. All walks are free.

My walk starts at the Covered Bridge park at 4:00 PM. After shooting around the Covered Bridge and Monument, we will head downtown. Lost of old storefronts. The classic car show will start around 5:00 so there should be some nice cars and interesting characters to photograph.

After the walk, anyone that want to get together for dinner is welcome. I will suggest a place when I have a better idea of the number of people interested.

You don’t need a fancy camera. You camera phone is fine. This is a chance to meet new people and have a good time with photography. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Christmas Season 2010

It seems that even though I have the good intentions of posting more ofter, I don’t seem to get here.? Maybe more next year.

This post contains some video taken during the Christmas Season. It will probably not be of much interest to anyone but family.? That doesn’t matter, Here is the video.

The above video shows some fun we had with the kids ice skating and at the speedway in lights.

This video is of Christmas.

Lastly, an Animoto video created from pictures of the new babies in the Ward family.? Lelia is especially proud of her grand-nephews.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year.

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.

Desks in a One Room School

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 Old School

The above image makes me thing of the long walk to school.

Bird Nest

What a way to make a nest for birds.

In the Window

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.
