So, I did a thing 🙂 I signed up to be a leader for the 10th Annual Scott Kelby’s PhotoWalk. A what??
Once a year (October 7, 2017 for this year), people from all over the world will step out into their communities, get together, walk around, and take photographs! And this is their 10th year doing it!
I love photography. I may not know what I’m doing (I really should take a class), but I absolutely love capturing and creating. I used to have a digital camera (Olympus E-330), but that took a crap and now just shoot with my 35mm Minolta X-G1. Love it! Wanna see some my work? Click here.
I’m so excited! I’ve chosen the Wilderness Gardens Preserve here in San Diego County. I haven’t been in years, but it was a beautiful location that needs to be embraced and shared. 🙂 There’s room for up to 50 people to join the walk, it’s FREE, and it gets people out and about and snapping photos!
This year, they’re supporting The Springs Of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates and empowers young orphans. Which is really cool – people can just donate funds, OR buy a t-shirt to wear to the walk. All proceeds earned from t-shirts sales are donated to Springs of Hope.
There’s a fun little competition, too, where each photographer gets to submit one photo for a chance to win some nifty prizes!
I don’t know why I’m so tickled pink about this. I get to get out, make new friends, hang out with old ones, snap photos like a crazy person, and enjoy the great outdoors of a beautiful location.
