For the past several years, Scott Kelby has organized a World Wide Photo Walk. According to their Facebook page "Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk is a social photography event where photographers get together in any public area to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun
with other photographers."
Alan Hess led a walk around Ocean Beach which is the neighborhood bordering ours so I decided that this would be the perfect way to explore our new area a bit. There were about 35 people signed up to participate in this walk but 5 minutes after the walk started everyone spread out so much along the beach that I didn't talk to another walker the entire time. I barely even saw other walkers most of the time. I think a lot of it had to do with our location so I think next year I might choose to do a walk in a different area.
None the less, I was pretty happy with some of the shots I got. I forced myself to use my 50 mm lens which I rarely ever use and I'm glad I did.
Here are some of my favorites from the day
Frank will be getting his own post later this week because I. AM. OBSESSED!
There is a contest you can enter and the prizes are pretty spectacular but I haven't decided if/what I will submit. Do you have a favorite? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
