World Wide Photo Walk 2009

Saturday evening I participated in Scott Kelby's world wide photo walk. Scott Kelby is a big name in digital photography and he came up with a fun idea - organize a multi-city photo walk and then share the results. This year over 900 groups formed and walked with an estimated 30000 people attending.

I was at the Kitchener one and it was well attended. I think we were close to 50 people. Our leader came a little late so things were disorganized, but I think most of us had a good time anyways. Everyone was friendly and I met a bunch of new photographers. Our route had a good amount of stuff to shoot and it ended up in Victoria Park during the Beer and Rib fest.

I shot both digital and film, but I mis-loaded my first roll, so all my film photos from the first half of the walk don't exist. That's ok - I'm sure there were no winners in there :)

There are prizes for the photowalk. Everyone gets to submit two photos. I'm having a hard time choosing mine. Below are my candidates - any suggestions? Click through for larger photos.

I would have a hard time picking as well. I really like the daisy because it has great detail. The guy painting the ribs with sauce is really interesting. I like the smoke. I also find the seagull visually appealing. I like the clouds in that shot. Good luck picking, I think that I have selected on of mine, but the rest of my shots are not as good as I had hoped.

I'd have to agree with Carolyn's choices. The daisy photo just pops right out at you. The painting ribs one isn't as sharp but I think the shallow DOF and smoke draw you in. Just to be different, I'll also pick the wall-eating plant because it's humourous and well-composed... it really does look like it's slowly and sneakily taking over the building.

I'm a bit slow, but better late than never............I guess.
I like the balck and white shot of the lilies and also the Canadian flags.
Good Luck
