It's time to go on a photowalk. The 5th Annual Worldwide Photowalk was announced yesterday, on Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider blog. The date is Saturday, 13 October. There is a short video and links to find your local photowalk at the link. Last year, we led one of the 1,100 walks in cities around the world, attended by almost 30,000 photographers. We hope will you join us on our walk, in Williamsburg, Virginia. You can sign up to join Mark and I here. Several photowalkers signed up yesterday. There is a 50 photographer limit in each city, so sign up today. You must register to be part of the festivities.
The photowalk will be a leisurely stroll through the Colonial Williamsburg area. There is no cost to you, unless you decide to buy a ticket to go into the re-enactment displays (a single-day ticket for these attractions is $39.95). Last year, most did not buy the ticket because there is so much to see outside.
Mark and I have, both, been to Colonial Williamsburg throughout our lives and will ensure we get to the most scenic places during the walk. There are many things to see, and it isn't all about history. We'll also touch on the shops along the edges.
You can bring any kind of camera you desire from your old film camera, to camera phone, to the latest SLR, with 20 lens. Last year, we even had a photographer with a pin-hole camera. We recommend a small camera bag, comfortable shoes, and a bottle or two of water. The weather can be unpredictable, so you may want to bring a light jacket.
On a sadder note, Mark had a death in the family, just after I left for two weeks of vacation. My condolences to his whole family. Sorry for the recent lack of blogs; we were doing much more important things.
