Yesterday I had the treat of hosting one of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walks here in Seattle. Fifty people signed up to explore the Olympic Sculpture Park and waterfront with their cameras and each other. Here you see most of us, eight or nine others came and found us after this shot was taken. The weather turned out to be perfect, the light was great, company was fantastic, and we closed the day with dinner together on an outdoor terrace overlooking Elliott Bay. There were 900 locations around the world where photo enthusiasts gathered for fun and maybe a world record of some sort for the number of people photowalking in one day. Participants are eligible to enter two photos in a contest, and hosts like me get to choose the one photo from our group to enter into the world wide contest for some amazing photography equipment prizes. I'm wishing my group much luck. They are an amazingly talented bunch with many pros and adventurous image makers among us, as well as hobbyists like me who just want to get out there and walk our cities and explore them through our lenses. I know a few other City Dialy Photo Bloggers participated in walks near them, and hope many more will check out this fun event next year. You can see some of our shots at this Flickr site, with more to come in the next few days.

I read earlier that you were doing this. We were doing dueling cameras at Mt. Rainier.

You know BC, the next time I come east you are on my "must visit list," so keep that VT charm going. You live in such a beautiful place and are a delightful person. I don't need to "see" you to know we'd hit it off famously.

Kateny, Dueling cameras! I like that saying a lot! I have met you face to face, and as I recall we did a little dueling ourselves :-).

I'm so sorry I wasn't in town for your walk! We didn't end up making it to the Geneva one either. Hopefully we will be able to do yours next year!
