Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, Monson, Massachusetts
October 1st and 2nd was the weekend of Scott Kelby’s 4th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk (1,116 Photo Walks, 27,956 Photo Walkers). I remember seeing something about the walk last year but by the time I looked into it the walk had already passed. Then, this year, with so many more photography contacts I caught wind of the walk early enough to sign up.
The walk took place in the center of Monson, MA on a very rainy Saturday. Luckily the rain tapered off shortly after the walk began. Monson is a small town, population just shy of 10,000. Monson is also where, on June 1, a rare and devastating tornado tore a path of destruction. The woman who hosted the walk is a resident of Monson and suffered tornado damage herself. We met at 4 p.m. on one end of Main Street, then walked to the other end and back again to complete the walk at 6. At one point there were 5 of us, including the photo journalist of a local newspaper. It was fun to get together with people who also have a passion for photography.
I took 170 photos with the above being my favorite and the one I submitted to the contest. In this post you will see a theme, let me know what you think it might be.
Two more posts on this subject will be forthcoming.
