PhotoWalk Route – See Google Maps Route Walk at: http://goo.gl/maps/aGn0X
We’ll all start together at City Hall. That’s a great time to start trying to win the prizes by taking photos of fellow PhotoWalkers! We’ll then work our way up to 4th street, then 6th street and end the route inside the Hilton, where maybe one of you will buy me a drink. We’ll be taking photos of the city, the sights, and other PhotoWalkers all along the way. The “ending” of these is always a bit strange because there is no formal gathering, but just keep taking photos until you peter out… you can drift away into the night like a firefly, then go home and get back on the sweet sweet internet with a beverage of your choice and post away. You have a week to add photos to the event before the winners are chosen! 🙂 Thanks again in advance, and I think we’ll have a great time together!
Be sure to post your photos to here to the event at http://goo.gl/RVyDQ and tag them with #AustinPhotowalk2013
