This is my third straight year attending Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, which is currently comprised of 1113 walks in 100+ countries. There’s no need to be intimidated by a photowalk: it’s a great way to get together with friends, meet new people, discover picturesque locations near you, or emerge from a photography slump.

Scott and the gang brainstormed to make the event even better this time: a cooler time of year and two days of walks. Check this page to find walks on both Saturday and Sunday of this weekend, October 1 and 2. I joined a Saturday walk; realized it conflicted with my mother/son campout this weekend; withdrew from that walk and joined one for Sunday afternoon.

Yesterday I called my husband and asked him to register for my walk. I’ve always gone on my own, but I thought it would be fun to do it together this time. (Honey, did you sign up?) Most walks wrap up at a restaurant for dinner, so I’m selling this as a photo walk/date night.

There’s no pressure to have the “right” equipment or creditials; it’s totally for fun, although you can win some seriously sweet prizes if your photo is selected by your walk’s leader as his/her favorite or as a finalist or grand prize winner from all of the walks. I would go with only a camera phone (and I’ll Instagram the event, for sure).

So what are you waiting for? Go see if there’s a walk in your area! (please come back and tell me if you sign up)
