We had a low turn out again this year for the walk I led in Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, but it was a nice day, even if it didn’t feel at all like October. Thank you to those of you who participated. Continue reading

Pass Max Patch, taking a right at Rattlesnake Gap, in Cherokee National Forest and bouncing down the narrow 4WD necessary road/trail to Wolf Creek Falls was one of the toughest roads we’ve ever taken to a waterfall.  Continue reading

Shape or form plus #WWPW2018

As covered up as I am, I did what I said I wasn’t going to do, and took the time to go shoot for CCoH’s “Gimme your best shot” theme this month, which was shape or form. I went back thru the newsletters to see if they elaborated on that a bit more, but didn’t see anything, so I just went with I thought qualified. Here are the three I sent.

WWPW2017BentCreekNC & Asheville NC

I led a walk at the NC Arboretum in Bent Creek, NC this year, which makes the 4th one I’ve led. It was Scott Kelby’s 10th World Wide Photo Walk. I started in 2010 and have been to 12 now.

Until this year you could sign up for more than one walk in your area as long as the walk wasn’t full and you were taking a spot from someone else that was only walking in one. I didn’t read anywhere that had changed but several walkers told me they could not sign up for more than one. Thankfully a few showed up to walk anyway even though not signing up, means they can only enter the contest on the walk they did sign up for or share on the for fun Flickr page.

This year Mike and I talked and separated our walks a little so walkers had time to do both if they chose.

Here are a few of my pics from my walk this year, and a few from Mike’s in Asheville. https://www.flickr.com/gp/kiminwnc/7H86es

If you’ve seen what I’ve been shooting for awhile you can tell I don’t typically photograph people. While on Mike’s walk I (asked permission) and photographed Tony Prince as he worked on a glass hummingbird. To my surprise, he liked it to enough to make it his profile picture on Facebook for a bit. It was neat to watch him work.

Thank you to those of you who came out and spent the day and especially those of you who gave to support the orphanage in Kenya. Several of you got up pretty early to travel as far as you did and I thank you. Also thank you to Tony Prince for letting me photograph your glass work.

Now, if you registered to walk you can enter their contest.  You enter on Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk page on the walk you registered to walk at. Here is the link to mine http://worldwidephotowalk.com/walk/nc-arboretum/. Details can be found on their site under FAQ

Here are some of the walk group photos

I think it’s neat to see what was happening around the world on 10/7/17. I haven’t found where you see all the shared photos in one place yet this year.

 

Sign ups begin today

10th annual World Wide Photo Walk or #WWPW2017 on Saturday, Oct 7th.

This is world wide – hence the name- all are welcome regardless of skill level. Up to 50 per walk and it’s free, but you have to sign up. It’s true they take donations and proceeds from shirt sales for an orphanage in Kenya. You can enter a photo to win prizes but you can also just go to shoot and share with like minded photographers

I’m leading a walk again this year at the NC arboretum and there are a few more in the area too – one is timed so you can attend both if you sign up for both.
