I want to give a big "THANK YOU" to everyone that came out and took part in the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk today. This was the first time the walk was held in Stony Plain, and my first time leading a WWPW. This year there was a total of 1053 walks around the world, with over 20,000 fellow 'walkers' taking part. I hope that everyone had a great time, met some fellow shooters, and maybe even learned something new. Most of all, I hope that everyone had FUN!!
For those of you that are interested in sharing your photos, here are the links to the Flickr pages for the walk. Even if you're apprehensive about sharing your own work (which you shouldn't be) take a few minutes for a quick trip around the world thru the lenses of others.
If you don't have a Flickr account but would like to set one up, here are a few helpful videos. They will walk you thru how to get your account set up, and explain how to join the groups.
For those that would like to take part in the competition, here's how you do it.
