I’m backkkkkkkk!!! Other than my weekly mystery photos, I have been greatly neglecting my blog. Our summer was extremely busy, and although I took just under 6000 photos on our trip to Europe in August, I had other photos I had to deal with before I could even think about editing our travel photos. This week I finally finished editing my niece’s wedding photos, so I can now start posting about our trip of a lifetime.
Before I do though, I want to share with you the wonderful experience that Mike and I had today. We participated in the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk for the first time, and it was fantastic. Although there were a few locations within driving distance for us, I chose the Elora, Ontario walk because I know it’s a wonderful town for photography. The walk was led by Janette Gajic, a professional photographer, and 50 participants with varying photography skills met her for a group photo at 9am. There was a planned route to follow, but it was a very easygoing morning, where you could just walk around at your own pace, with other people from the group, or wander off on your own. Then we all met up afterwards at a small restaurant where we reviewed our photos and enjoyed the best crepes I have ever tasted!
I snapped photos for two hours straight, but here are my favourite photos of the day.
OMG – they are all astounding! You are a true professional and I’m sooooo jealous! Really.
Awww, now I’m blushing :). Thanks Dor – it was soooo much fun!
Damn but these are good… those first two … damn I have no words of praise… pure grandeur
Oh Bulldog, after walking around yesterday watching photographers who were obviously professionals and feeling kind of amatuerish, you are really great for the ego. Thank you so much :).
These are absolutely beautiful, Cindy! I especially love the woody one but I also like the one above that because of the way you can see the autumnal leaves reflected in the window. 🙂
Thanks Book Buddy :). I’m so glad we decided to go because it was a great day. I didn’t know any of the people participating, so if Mike hadn’t agreed to go with me, I’m not sure if I would have been brave enough to go alone LOL. By the way, the shot with the reflection in the window was a real fluke. I was photographing a church when I just happened to turn around and see the reflection of the tree. I knew right away it was going to be one of my best shots of the day!
These are really good and all are impressive. I’m kinda embarrassed to admit that my fave is the leaf. I know all the rest of super artsy and really capture shadows and reflection, but this one really made me smile.
Thanks my friend :). I love the leaf shot too. It’s so simple, but it just kind of pops out at you. Good thing I had Mikey with me because he’s the one who noticed this leaf laying all by itself in the parking lot.
These are awesome Cindy. I really love the last one with the boarded window and the second with the trees. Is that a reflection?
Thanks so much Edith. They have a contest for the walk where you can submit one photo, and I have actually chosen the one you like :). It is the side of an old abandoned, roofless woolen or textile factory across the river from the old mill. There was only wire mesh in the window, and you could see the trees on the other side of the river through it if you looked at just the right angle.

Beautiful pics! I’ve always loved the fall colors!
Thank you :). Although I absolutely hate what comes after it, Fall is a beautiful season, ripe with photo ops.
Thank you so much. Your photos are beautiful too! I am now following you.
I have never heard of this…. I would definitely be interested in this adventure and yes Elora is beautiful…. But I think the famous Inn is closed now….
I think you would really enjoy it. If you have Facebook, you can like the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk page, and then you will be reminded when it is coming up next year. There were quite a few walks in Southern Ontario, so you can just pick one, sign up, and go. I think we will probably try a different place next year for some variety.
