maitland nsw australia| worldwide photo walk 2010

after spending lots of time doing photography research on-line, i stumbled across the website for the worldwide photo walk . i had no idea what a photowalk was, but thought it could be fun and was willing to give it a go. i put my name on the waiting list for newcastle and put my name down for maitland so i didn’t miss out all together. turns out i made it onto both lists and decided to try both thinking they would be very different- city/country, new/old, big group/little group, you get the picture. and i was right they were very different, and i really enjoyed the day, although after five hours of “photo-walking” i was exhausted, with sore fingers and feet.

first up was the maitland walk, which was a lovely two hour stroll through maitland (maitland mall mostly) which featured some beautiful historic buildings and a few interesting characters. i dragged my friend b and my mother along for this one, mum spent more time rummaging through the antique stores than taking pictures, which also provided some great shots.

i met a few fellow photography lovers, and can’t wait to see some of their work on flickr.com

so here are a few shots from the days outing
