Worldwide Photo Walk

“Photography for me is a passion, a mixture of science and art that creates magic.
- Scott MacQuarrie -

On Saturday, October 11, the Worldwide Photo Walk took place; a annual social event where photographers of all skill levels gather in their local area for a two hour photo shoot. Hundreds of cities and towns, and thousands of people around the globe participate each year. It's free and it's fun, and this time around I decided to join in on this one-day global event.

I’d like to share a few photos that I took around my beautiful city that Saturday morning.











If you enjoy taking photos, consider joining in on the fun next year in your own area. It doesn't matter what kind of camera you use, or what skill level you are. All you need is passion and enthusiasm for photography.

Have a beautiful Tuesday!

  4. Oh my goodness, I love them all. Impossible to pick a favorite, though I DO especially love the one of the corn. So autumn-y. :)

    1. I love that corn, too. That was taken at the farmers market that is set up downtown.

  5. With these examples, I can see that you have a most successful photo shoot. Several pictures, like the second one, are just stunning. Well done.

    1. I definitely miss my other blog, but just can't keep up with it all. I figured if one blog had to be put on hold, it would be that one.

    2. I tried to do a coupon blog awhile back and I couldn't do it. Never even did one post. Instead I use it as a reading room for blogs and updates. But I'm soon to move to BlogLovin' now that my feedly is fecked up.

      So yeah, I can understand just having one blog at a time.

  9. Martha, these are beautifully done photographs, in all aspects. My heavens how you have become a great photographer!
    I really like the first two because they remind me of Nova Scotia........historic and the waterfront.

    1. Awww...thank you! I enjoy sharing humour. We all could use a laugh. I'll have to check out your blog, and stop by and say hi. 17 is a tough age, but most of the kids turn out fine. Teen angst :)
