Randy Jones (above) and I participated in Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk on Saturday. Groups from 10 to 50 were meeting in cities all over the world Saturday and were spending a couple of hours together walking around cities shooting pictures and sharing with each other. Randy and I joined the group in Lansing. There were about 21 of us, led by a photog from the capital city, Richard Vissers. We met at the Brenke Fish Ladder at about 9am and walked north several blocks from there.
The walk took us up a tree lined street of businesses that were colorfully decorated and surrounded by flowers. At our furthest northern point, we stopped at a Turner Dodge Park that contained the Turner-Dodge house. All this provided many opportunities for pictures. Upon returning a few hours later, we all met at a local restaurant to share our experiences and refuel.
You can see my pictures on my flickr site (LINK). Everyone will eventually sharing their pictures on a flickr group site. As of tonight, the site wasn't yet available.
It was such a great experience, Randy and I talked about organizing 'photowalks' in and around Shepherd. So, stayed tune for announcements of such a walk if you're interested in going out and taking pictures!
