World Wide Photo Walk

This past Saturday, I participated for the 2nd time in the 2nd annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk, "a social photography event where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers." Oh, and there are prizes, too.

According to their site, last year's photowalk, which was held on August 23, 2008, had:

- 8,324 photographers register for local walks
- 47 Countries had participating cities
- 44 States in the US had Photo Walks
- 36 cities worldwide
- More than 1,017,125 photos were taken on walks that day
This year, Saturday, July 18, more then 32,000 photographers went on photowalks across the globe.

You can view the photos as participants load them onto the photowalk flickr page at: www.flickr.com/groups/skphoto/pool/ and watch the main site http://worldwidephotowalk.com/ to see who the winner's are on August 17th.

  2. Thanks, Kel!

    How did I get the sheep to look at me? I really have no idea. One minute he was chomping on the grass and the next minute he was ready for his close up. =)

  3. These are some amazing shots. I love the idea of the photowalk... fascinating to think of all the photographers taking pictures in the same area. I can only imagine how many different variations of the same places and things there are. I love taking pictures... strictly amateur... and wish I had a better camera. But for me, cameras are down below art supplies in order of priority. So my Easy Share will have to do for now. Thanks for sharing your photos and the links and information about the photowalk sites with us.

    Blessings,
    Christi

  4. Christi. Don't be ashamed of your easyshare camera. I used only a point and shoot for this photowalk. Even on the worldwidephotowalk site they made a great statement on the subject: "gear is good. vision is better."

    Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear about you doing a photo walk next year. =)

    In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy your blog and art.

  5. What a great idea. I loved WIllaimsburg as a child, but we then returned to Europe and I haven't been there since. Your photos remind me that I would love to return one day with my husband...
