On Saturday I led my first Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in Oxford, and had a great time with an awesome group of people. This is a huge thank you to them for coming out and joining me on the day.
Being English we can talk about the weather, all week leading up to Saturday it had indicated we were likely to get wet. So as I headed in to Oxford it was raining quite heavily. At just after 13:30 I saw blue skies appearing, and by the time the walk started we had warm sunshine and blue skies. I was silently thinking of the folks who’d messaged me earlier in the day saying that they didn’t want to get wet 🙂
Being my first walk I had made sure we had a route packed with a range of different sights and photo opportunities. I would love to say I planned the gents in kilts, two weddings and a hen party on the route, but that was pure luck!
Open parkland spaces, narrow streets full of character, tourists, university students, blue skies, sunshine, grey skies, the odd drop of rain in the last 15 minutes all made sure we had a great day – I did.
At the end back in Radcliffe Square at 4pm the rain stopped and I handed out the prizes to the walkers who had completed the challenge I had set at the start.
I loved my day and it’s all down to the folks who joined me. I can’t wait for the next one now.
A whinge of photographers
During the walk there was a discussion about a new collective noun for a special group of photographers. So from this day forwards a group of photographers frightened of taking their cameras out in the rain will be known as a whinge 🙂
