With the photo walk only a few days away I wanted to take a look at the route we’d be taking. Actually, I wanted to get a route together.
Ah, no route has been planned yet? Actually, a route has been planned, and I’ve had other suggestions. The big question isn’t about things to see, but having enough time.
Sadira and I went downtown last evening and started our own little walk from Sharlott Hall. I took a look at the time and pretended we spent about 15 minutes at the museum. There’s a lot to photograph there. Beautiful gardens, interesting buildings, cool tools behind the museum. Yup, 15 minutes with nearly 50 people isn’t too generous actually. You could stay longer for sure!
We made our way to the center of town, walking one alley, and stopping here and there. I stopped occasionally to take a photo or two. Hey, I’ll take a new photo opportunity when it’s available. And yes, the tripod was along in case I had an HDR opportunity.
After walking what I considered a very short time I checked the time. More than 45 minutes at a non-hurried pace. We enjoyed people watching, hearing a military band on the square, and had fun just being out walking around in town.
45 minutes just walking. No major stopping for photos. No large group in tow. Hmmmm…..Yeah, it’s going to be hard to cover tons of distance with a larger group. This is going to work out well!!!
I’m happy to say that I’m now sure we’ll have a great photo walk! The route I had in mind is a good one. And I’ll be providing alternate points of interest for folks who want to look around more. But for the group we’ll be keeping it to a smaller route.
The only big question now……
What do I wear? 😉
