06 May SYDNEY PhotoWALK Success!
It was great to see so many people turn up…
Last night was my 6th PhotoWALK I have organised. This time it was with Rob Potter… most of my SYDNEY walks have been co-organised with Rob (Photography Hot Spots Owner) . I am continually humbled by how many people turn up to these events. It is great to be able to organise these events for free… I was talking to Peter Smith during the event, and he was telling me how he had learnt a few new things in the short time we were together… to me, this is the essence of why we get together, it’s to share ideas and form new friendships… so THANKS again for coming along, it was great fun and I will announce the next one soon! Here is the group shot from the event.
Today’s iCandy – City Reflections
It will come as no surprise that Today’s iCandy is from last nights PhotoWALK! Here is my favourite from the PhotoWALK, it’s my favourite for a couple of reasons… firstly, I just love the city at night, it looks so nice all lit up, and the Blue Hour is my favourite time to photograph the city… secondly, this is a favourite as there were so many of us in this spot just sharing and learning from each other as we shot the cityscape, and that is the spirit of a PhotoWALK…sometimes the memories of the time a photo was made is better than the photo itself, thanks again to those that came along and I hope to see you at the next one!
