Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk

Well the leaves are turning (or have already turned) for most of us in New England, and the Holidays are just around the corner. I recently went on the 5th annual Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk and it was a great time.

This year’s Photowalk was held on Saturday October 13th and I was part of one that was held in Marblehead, Mass. It was a lot of fun and I met some really great people. Our trusty guide was a local photographer and a Marblehead resident himself, Rick Ashley (Not Rick Ashley.com)  Just for the record, that’s Rick Ashley and myself kneeling in the front row, Rick’s on the left side. Rick was a great guide and definitely knew the area well.

Marblehead is just north of Boston and is famous for its many contributions to the American Revolution and Civil War. It’s a very scenic seaside town, with many historic buildings and homes from the 17 th and 18th century. I love getting out with the camera anywhere around the ocean and Marblehead is definitely a place to check out if you've never been there. I’m sure everyone else on our Photowalk felt the same way. If you’ve never been on one of these Photowalks, you owe it to yourself to sign up for one next year, they can be a lot of fun.

The day of the Photowalk, I actually went up to Marblehead a couple hours early because I wanted to shoot another local attraction, Marblehead Light. Marblehead Light was built in 1835, but the original brick and wood tower was replaced in 1895 with a skeletal frame, the only one of its type in New England. I hadn’t been there in a few years and was hoping I’d get some autumn colors, but they we’re kind of lame?  Oh well, all in all, it was a great time either way. Like I always say, keep shooting and have some fun right?

I've been involved in few other projects on the side and should have my new blog / website set up soon. Until then, remember, keep shooting and have some fun!
