Good morning, everybody – I’m back from leading the local Photo walk in downtown Chicago.
We were blessed with perfect weather and a really great walk route created by my buddy, Chicaoean Paul Kober. Chicago is such a great city for a Photo Walk, with its mix of modern and classic architecture (and great food – did I mention the food?). We wound up at Epic Burger on State Street and shared lots of stories, photos, and laughs. A great to wrap up my Chicago walk.
Thanks for helping the Orphanage (and if you haven’t yet, it’s not too late)
Thanks to all the gracious photographers who donated to help those less fortunate by donating to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya, which this photo walk has adopted as our own. We’re well behind last year’s numbers, so I hope you’ll find a way to help out with a donation — they are really counting on us. Just $1.00 would make a difference.
Group Shots From Around the World
One of the highlights for me each year, is seeing the group shots from around the world come pouring in — it’s such a treat to see all those smiling faces, from every part of the globe, having fun and enjoying one of the great joys of being a photographer, which is hanging out with other photographers and making new friends in the process.
I’m going to post a few shots here, but I would love it if you’d upload the group shot from your walk here in the comments (don’t forget to name your image with the city and country name of your photo walk).
More Group Shot photos to come! :)
