Photowalking and PhotoPlus

Boat House

For the past seven years I have been hosting one of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalks every year without fail. They are one of my favorite photography activities and I thoroughly enjoy meeting all the folks who come out to participate. Unfortunately this year we had some crazy weather going on here in Virginia to include a Nor’Easter and a hurricane. The combination was enough to cause me to pull the plug on our photowalk that was scheduled for Old Town Alexandria. We didn’t have an official rain date so I scheduled one for this past weekend at the same location where I was joined by several of the folks who had signed up for the original date. We were blessed with some beautiful sunshine and fall colors as we walked along the waterfront, up the cobblestone streets, and over to the Farmer’s Market at City Hall. It was a really fun morning and I appreciate all the folks who showed up to join me.

The photo above was actually shot through the window of the little boat house by Founders Park. I loved the look of the shop and since I am in to woodworking, it really struck a chord with me. It isn’t an HDR shot, just some editing with Topaz Adjust and Topaz Detail. Here’s a few more from the morning.

Next week I will be heading to my first PhotoPlus Expo and I’m really excited about it. Having gone to a ton of PMA shows back in the day, I am looking forward to being back in the middle of a big photo expo and immersing myself in all the glorious photographic gizmos and gadgets that will make my photog life better. I’ll be popping up photos from the show on my Instagram account and maybe doing some live Periscope stuff too (just search Photowalkpro in the Periscope app and follow me). Be sure to follow me and check it out. See you in a couple of days!

  1. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photographs. I just got back from New England and they remind me of many of the coastal towns you see up there.
