2018 will be East Cork Camera Group’s fifth participation in the Scott Kelby's World Wide Photowalk. In 2014 we walked in our hometown of Midleton, in 2015, we walked in Youghal, in 2016, we went to Cobh and last year we visited Kinsale. This year we’re going to walk in the real capital of Ireland – Cork City! So what is a PhotoWalk you might well ask? Well, it’s simply a leisurely walk, during which you take photographs of your surroundings. That’s all it is and you don't have to be a professional photographer or have expensive gear either - even a mobile phone camera will do!
Trying to isolate one venue from all those available in this fine city is a chore in itself but we have decided that we will concentrate on the general area of the Western Road where we will have Elizabeth Fort, St. Finbarr’s Cathedral, UCC and Fitzgerald Park in our sights.
We’ve had great weather on all our previous walks and we’re hoping that this year’s exceptionally fine summer might make a reappearance on the 6th of October to allow us to walk and photograph this area at its best. The walk will be a leisurely affair and will end with lunch at a local venue to be decided.
You don’t have to be a member of East Cork Camera Group to participate either so if you simply have an interest in photography and would like to tag along, no problem! All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult, however. The walk is free but any nominal admission fees (more details after you register) and lunch will be at your own expense. As the walk is in aid of the Springs of Hope charity, a small donation to it at the time of registration would be appreciated.
Remember, you must pre-register at the official website, worldwidephotowalk.com, in order to participate.
If our previous walks are anything to go by, this will be a great event and will be worth coming along. We look forward to seeing you there.
