Saturday is the annual Worldwide Photowalk. I plan to attend in New Haven even though it’s scheduled for the middle of the night: 9:30 AM! Are they nuts?
Worldwide 29,000 photographers are signed up to attend 1,108 walks. The New Haven walk is limited to 50 with 49 already on board.
Q. What is a Photo Walk?
A. It’s 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.
Two years ago Steve Brenner and I drove to Brooklyn, took the subway to Manhattan and walked back across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was probably my best photo day ever! The Brooklyn Bridge pano at the top of this entry was taken at the end of the walk.
Last year I did New Haven which is an architecturally interesting city and was still as disappointed as could be.
New group leader. New meeting place. New route. I’m giving it another shot.
I’m excited because I’ll be carrying one additional lens. In anticipation of an upcoming trip I’ve rented a 4.5mm fisheye lens for ten days. FedEx says it’s here Thursday. It should give me an additional perspective… good or bad.
