Walk we did!

ANR WW photowalk

We had a great Antwerp edition of Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, last Saturday! More than 20 Belgians, a few Dutch people and even one US and one Czech photographer took part in a leisurely discovery tour through inspiring ‘cozy corners’ of ‘t Stad.

James, our walk leader, took us under the Schelde river into the area south of the historic city center. Along the way, plenty of colorful subject matter to satisfy everyone’s taste: some quite old, others very modern, and many full of surprises.

As co-leader of the walk, I came back with ‘only’ a modest 200 shots on the card. You may find my favorites from this walk in a gallery here. I am sure some of them will end up being featured in future posts here. There’s a pool with images from several walk participants on flickr as well. Enjoy!

But most importantly: I’ve met another group of enthusiast photo lovers/freaks, and we had a lot of fun during and after the walk sharing ideas, tips and all kind of stories. Thanks, leader, and thanks to all that participated!

Gear notes: D700, 24-70/2.8
