On October 13, 2012 I was invited by Kana (@pawspix) to attend Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk. It’s kind of an interesting concept. His calculator says 1339 Photowalks with 31803 Photowalkers around the world on this exact day, at approximately the same time, which is kind of impressive. It’s going to be interesting to see some of the submissions to the competition, where each photowalker gets to submit their favorite photo from the walk.
I’ve chosen this image:
The photowalk was arranged for Vancouver’s Chinatown district, a group of 50 photowalkers were supposed to attend. I was actually very skeptical about attending since that morning we had torrential raining, anybody that has an expensive camera usually doesn’t want to get it soaked in the rain, regardless of whether it’s waterproof or not. With these conditions there were a lot less photowalkers than expected.
As any Vancouverite will be able to see, I started my day off in Chinatown, then wandered past Main and Hastings, and then over into Gastown and then back towards Dr. Sun Yat-Sen’s gardens where we started the meeting and were expected to meet at the end.
I always enjoy the colors that come through when one is taking photographs just after a rainfall. The colors are rich and alive and one can really smell the photographs like they were standing in the rain.
So, I would like to ask you, faithful reader, which photograph would you pick for the submission?
