So Saturday started out looking like a crappy day for the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk in NYC, and not just the weather. I was meeting up with some other photogs at the train station and we would take the train into NYC, grab a quick subway ride to lower Manhattan and then a short walk to the starting point which was Highline Park.
So while we are hanging out at the train station, we hear that voice that no one ever wants to hear over the P.A….the dreaded automated female voice telling us our train broke down and it was being canceled. So we would have to catch the next train coming into the station. Sure…we have to all double up on the next train! Thanks…
Anyhow…we get on the 8:07 train (we were supposed to catch the 7:27) and we eventually arrive in New York Penn Station around 9:33. Oh did I tell you the trains only run local on the weekends? So we have about a gazillion stops we have to endure before we get to NY.
So the mad dash to catch an express “A” train on the NYC subway system. Fortunately they run every couple of minutes so by the time we got our metro cards and got up the steps, the train was coming in. The express has no stops between Penn Station and 14th Street where we had to get off and that saved us some time. Up the steps into the daylight again and a few minutes later we are at the starting point with about 5 minutes to spare!
We got into the group shot with the others that were already there (about 50 of us total) and off we went up the Highline snapping shots as we walked the path 1.45 mile path.

Being my 1st photowalk, I was very impressed how well it went, and more so, how friendly everyone was. If you have never done a Kelby photowalk, I would highly suggest doing one next year and to also look locally for any photowalks that may be taking place in a city or town near you.
