well i was brave today, for me anyway, i stepped out of my little box and went and played with some big boys (and a few ladies) at Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk. it was sunny. actually the hottest day i can recall, so yay for that! i am all about getting a little tan while shooting, multitasker that i am. so it was a bit strange, i am not sure what i expected, but all 50 showed up and all with WAY bigger equip than i have ever seen in my life. we are talking big guns here. and i heard talk of bangkok and shooting sports teams. "ummm hi i like to shoot my 3 cute kids and pretty flowers, oh and flare i love flare." HARRRRRR! then we scattered like roaches to all corners of the old port. shot for 2 hours crossed paths and shots a few times. then met back for a beer (1/2 and 1/2 for me yummmm) then said our goodbyes. now i have the task of narrowing down to 10 shots. i think i have them, but to make the mosaic i needed 13 so there you go. there will be a winner from each city, who then will go on to compete for the best shot in the WORLD. pretty cool. well thank you to Scott Kelby for hatching such a grand plan, bringing photogs and shutterbugs together all over the world, that my friend is pretty dang cool. as for me i was happy to have 2 hours of uninterrupted shooting in a city i really like. and i kinda like my shots too, bonus.
