Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk 2016

It was once again time for Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk. Each year, photographers around the world gather on the same day to explore, photograph, share photos with one another, make new friends, and be a part of a great cause. The Worldwide Photo Walk supports The Springs Of Hope Kenya Orphanage, an organization that feeds, houses, educates, and empowers young orphans so that they can grow up to not just survive but succeed. This year there were 24,336 walkers, walking in 1068 locations around the world.

I participated in a walk in Historic Downtown Tituville, Fl. Our walk was lead by Chris Wiley a local fine art photographer. We started our walk in the historic part of Titusville. There are many old turn-of-the-century buildings to photograph. We continued on past the monuments dedicated to space travel. (Titusville is located in close proximity to the Kennedy Space Center.) We ended our walk at the fishing pier under the Max Brewer bridge on the Indian River. Cloud cover thwarted our hopes of a nice sunset. There was, however, a sliver of color in the sky.

I was concentrating mostly on getting some nice architectural abstracts. I like to photograph old crusty, rusty things – something that Titusville has a lot of. It’s always great to get together with other photographers. We had lots of fun! I think I came out with a few good photos to boot. I need to pick one of these photos to enter in the World Wide  Photo Walk competition. So it would be great if you could let me know which one you would pick?

  1. There are lots of great shots here. I really like the “Make art not war” shot for its message, but strangely I am drawn to the sewer grate image. I love the different textures and I think it was brilliant to shoot it at an angle.

    • Thank you Mike! We had a great time. I would recommend a walk in your area next year. I’m drawn to the, make art not war image myself. We were at least trying to make art. I like photographing manhole covers. When I see a new one I need to photograph it. Textures are another thing I really like to photograph.

      • I am sure there are walks in my area and I’ll see if I can remember to look for one next year.
