Good morning, everybody from fascinating Marrakech, Morocco (we came here after my Photo Walk in beautiful Lisbon, but we’re heading back home tomorrow). Here’s the group shot from my Libson walk – I was very fortunate to have another great group of photographers, along with some of my friends join me on the walk, including Fernando Santos, Peter Treadway, Dave Williams, Roby Pisco, Mimo Meidany, Kathy Baitson and her/our new friend Gabby, Mike McCaskey, Piotr Trumpiel, and my big brother Jeffrey).
We had such a great walk, thank to perfect weather and an absolutely awesome walk route created by my friend Lisbon photographer Fernando Santos. What a perfect place for a photo walk. It was cool to meet everybody, including many who came from all over Europe to join us for a day of photos and fun. It was a perfect way to celebrate the 10th year of this Worldwide Photo Walk. :)
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 still in Morocco (where the Internet upload speeds at our Airbnb apartment are among the slowest on the planet), I’m not going to be able to share group shots here, but folks are posting lots of them from walks all over the world over on my Facebook page (here’s the link). When I get back home, I’ll do another post and feature those shots, so post ’em here, post ’em there, but I’ll post them all when I get back. I get such a kick out of seeing all the group shots – it really means so much to me to see all the different folks that participated.
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 behind last year’s numbers, so I hope you’ll find a way to help out with a donation — they are really counting on it.
OK, we’re off to wander the busy streets of Marrakech today — lots of photos and stories to share when I get back, but I have to at least share this one (below) — something we were just not expecting to see yesterday on our road trip to the ocean.
Thanks to everybody who participated in walks around the world. Hope you got lots of great shots, made some new friends, and maybe even saw a goat tree or two (hey, it’s possible). ;-)
