World Wide Photo Walk, Austin (again)

by on Aug.09, 2010, under Photography

Sorry – time for another personal trumpet-blowing post…

After posting my news about the Honorable Mention in the Unified Color HDR competition, I woke up on Saturday morning to discover that I had also had my entry selected as the winner of this year’s Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk for Austin’s Palmer Event Center/Lady Bird Lake walk (there were 3 in the city this year). That was a big surprise since I definitely felt that my images from this year’s walk were significantly less inspiring than last year’s entry which ended up in my recent exhibition set.

Unlike many other walks where the winner is chosen by the walk leader, Simi, our leader, opened the competition to votes from the attendees so thanks to everyone who voted for my picture of the First Street Bridge!

I’ve already blogged the winning image so here’s another one I took during the walk showing the jukebox in Threadgill’s Restaurant where we all met to have lunch afterwards.

Having won this event two years running, I think it’s time for me to choose a different walk next year or perhaps even sign up to lead one. We’ll see what happens when the 2011 sign-up starts in May or thereabouts next year.
