Photowalking the weekend away

Mongomery Photowalk

Path of most resistance

So what was I thinking when I decided to do 2 photowalks in one weekend?  You tell me!

If you haven’t already read my blog entry from the other day, take a moment and read up on my activity for this past Saturday in NYC.

Come Sunday morning, and after having a hearty breakfast, its off once again to another photowalk.  After the crowds and urban surroundings of NYC, I was ready for a break from the madness and when I arrived at the location, it was just totally rural.  So from a group of 50 one day, we went to a group of about 8 or so the next.  And did I mention these were the 1st 2 photowalks I had ever taken?  Hey talk about jumping into the deep end head first!  Skip the walking into the shallow end part.  And in contrast….the worldwide photowalk in NYC was sunny and the Montgomery Friends of Open Space photowalk was just the opposite.  No rain but just gray skies.

But what came out of 2 days walking with other photographers was a feeling of being amongst people that speak my language.  The ones that like to talk all techno babble with such lingo as ‘aperture’, ‘shutter’, ‘iso’ and ‘depth of field’.  I had never met ANY of these folks  before this past weekend and rather than getting that typical cold shoulder, no one had to warm up to anyone, it was like we had already known each other for years and we just started conversing as we walked along.

I would highly recommend to  anyone who hasn’t yet experienced a photowalk to give it a try.  Look up your local photo club or if you are on any of the social media sites, check around and see what may be close by for get togethers.  One site of interest is MEETUP.COM.  Just search on photography and see who may be having ‘meetups’ in your area.
