Scott Kelby, a well-known photographer, has spear-headed an annual event known as Worldwide Photowalk Day. This event is designed to do two things; help photographers meet each other and raise money for orphans in Kenya.
I recently learned of this event, and signed up for the walk scheduled in Gainesville, Florida, about an hour and a half drive from my house. I could have chosen a closer walk, but this walk was on the University of Florida campus, and I love visiting University campuses (even if they are one of my teams biggest in-state, out of conference rivals), plus, I have only been to Gainesville a couple of times, and neither time I had my camera, so what better way to explore a new location and meet a new group of photographers??
Both of my daughters joined me, not because they are into photography, but because they play Pokemon Go, and wanted a new place to get Pokemon (but, hey, we spent the day together walking around the University of Florida campus, I will take it as a win). The walk itself was only supposed to be a couple of miles, but my feet said it was way more.
I haven’t yet edited any of my photos, I glanced at them and nothing jumped out at me as great, but once I have some time to really look at them, I am hopeful that I will find a few salvageable ones and will post them throughout the week.
This first photo was taken with my iPhone right after we caught up with the group, and then got separated from them again, near the Century Tower, which I will write about in a later post.
