2nd Annual World Wide Photo Walk : Philly

Saturday was Scott Kelby's 2nd Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. I sign up a few months ago and was really looking forward to the day. I was not disappointed. The weather was fabulous and I meet a bunch of really nice people who I walked around the city of Philadelphia with and took a ton of photo's.
There is a little contest and even though I am fairly positive I won't win I am still going to summit 2 photos. That is the limit. I took over 300 pictures and processed at least 60. The first one is a self portrait which I just had to take. The other 9 I am mulling over which to enter. I would love any opinions on that.


These are the concrete barrier around city hall.

This is a Service Flag in the window at the Union League.

Looking down Spruce Street.

One of the many interesting Brownstones.

Soldier statue outside the Union League.

Building looking up from Locust Street.

Flower Box on one of the many brownstones.

Looking down Broad Street "Avenue of the Arts".

Looking up, Love Park.

I had such a good time and will definitely do it again. I am also inspired to go and do a photo walk on my own. It was really a great time.


  1. What an awesome idea!

    I love love love the one below One of the many interesting Brownstones.

    Awesome shots girl!

  2. WOW! These are all great! I've not see a lot of this kind of photography from you and now I want to see more. I love the flag the best.

  3. This is probably not going to help in the least because we are all going to give you a different LIKE...but I love the last one (and YOU!, too!).

    What a fun afternoon!

  4. Wonderful shots, Cara. Good for you in going on one of the walks. I thought briefly about it, but life always gets a bit too busy.

    I really like the green concrete barriers and your SP. :)

  5. I don't believe they have anything like that around here. Looks like fun. I love the s/p and the green barrier shots. Good luck with the contest!

  6. By the looks of it, this was a productive and inspiring walk. LOVE the service flag and the Broad and Locust St. views.

  7. Awesome shots Carla!
    I enjoyed photo walking with you too.

  8. These are all just lovely -- you got some fantastic shots!

  9. You did awesome! So exciting! I would love to have done that! My favorite is the one with the service flag - that is just perfect! I'm guessing that last one was with the 12-24? I can't wait to play with a wide angle!
