Celebrating CameraWalking’s 1st Year!

Yes it has been a year since we launched CameraWalking! What a year! Many of you said, “What a great idea!,” shared your photos with us, joined our Facebook page, and read our blog posts, all 49 of them! We have had a great time writing, sharing ideas, resources, and our many photos with all of you. Thank you for making this a great year!

To celebrate we decided to create a CameraWalking Meetup Group, and as of this post we have 132 members, all eager to walk and take photos! Wow! It was truly a surprise to see so many respond with comments like: “I am already a camera walker,  but didn’t know it!,” “Yay – I’ve been looking for a photo-walk group!,” and “This group sounds fun!”

We jumped in and scheduled our first Meetup, which filled to capacity within a few days! Yesterday, thirteen people joined me on our first CameraWalking Meetup along South Lake Union.

We walked along South Lake Union Park, a wonderful urban park full of Camera Walking photo opportunities. We loved the larger landscapes.

We ventured into The Center for Wooden Boats, a great nonprofit that showcases historic boats, gives free rides, and teaches sailing classes.

It is one of the many places that I love to walk because there is always something new to capture.

Lake Union is a working lake shared by boats, planes, wildlife and people. It always amazes me to stand on the docks and see what comes by, such as Kenmore Air’s float planes bringing people to and from Canada and the San Juan islands.

We made our way back to the park just in time to capture the summer fun.

I am pleased to say that our first CameraWalking Meetup was a success. Everyone had a great time, and we will be scheduling more soon, so if you are not already part of the Meetup community, check it out. It is free to join. We would love to have you become a member of our group.

Again thanks for making this a terrific first year. We would love to hear from you, so please send us a comment below, post on our Facebook page, or send us an email at getmoving@camerawalking.com .
