Annapolis Royal Photowalk 2011

Today was the day of the first Annapolis Royal Photowalk. If you have not previously heard of this event, Photowalk is an international event where photographers gather with the idea of photographing a specific route within a community. Across the globe there are 1117 photowalks being held on the first two days of October with just over 28000 registered photographers. This is the fourth year for Photowalk and, as I mentioned, the first year that it has been held in Annapolis Royal.

Due to the rain our group was a modest 10 people but, they were an enthusiastic group. During the introductions I learned that people had come from as far away as Wolfville and Clare to take part in the photowalk. We met in the open space beside Kings Theatre and proceeded across the street to photograph the Farmers Market. After the market we made our way back across the road to take pictures of the wharf and boardwalk. While one of the members of the group decided to walk in the mud at the tidal level, the rest of us walked up the boardwalk to Fort Anne. With a short stop at the Fort we made our way through the Garrison Burial Ground and back to St George Street. The group straggled back to the Pub to meet and discuss the pictures that we took. This was both an interesting way to spend a couple of hours and a good chance to see what some other local photographers are doing.

The images in this group are a sample of the images that I took today. I have a few more images in an album on the AHS Facebook page and some of the images will reside on my computer without anyone ever seeing them.

All for now,
