This weekend (well, ...yesterday) was a World Photowalk day. It was an event organized by a well-known US photographer / instructor by the name of Scott Kelby. The purpose of it, is to encourage people to go out and shoot things they see in their communities around the world and interact with other photographers / enthusiasts while doing so.
There were a few groups set up in the Chicagoland area for this purpose. I ended up going with a group out of Geneva, IL which is located W/SW of Chicago.
Geneva is a picturesque town, with a busy downtown area lined with cute little shops and a very "small-town-USA" type of atmosphere. Our group was quite diverse with a wide range of ages and skill levels. It was an interesting experience and aside from the photographic aspect of the event itself, provided a great opportunity to network and make new friends.
World Photowalk day has been an annual event for about 5 years now. 2014 was my first year of attendance and I definitely plan to join a group for the 2015 event.
If you're into photography, I strongly recommend you check it out and consider attending (or organizing) one in your corner of the world.
Below, are some images I shot during the walk.
Enjoy and see you next time!
