    Just a reminder that photos have to be sent in to the library by the 15th of this month for the chance of being posted during Artprize.

      The info was handed out at the library during the event. I'm confused as to why you think anyone here would forward them to the library?

      The info from the library is - submit one unframed 8x10 by August 15. Include your name, title of work, and contact info. You can also provide a short paragraph about the piece. Your photo will be returned to you at the end of the exhibit or you can donate it. Submit your photo to - Grand Rapids Public Library Attn: Communications Dept, 111 Library St NE GR 49503 or drop it off to their attention. Hope this helps!

    It was a lot of fun, although didn't have the opportunity to get acquainted with anyone new.

    What a great set of photos you all have posted. I am humbled and also feel fortunate to have stumbled across a group of very creative people. Lets do this again very soon. Any ideas folks?

      Graffiti as a theme - there is plenty of it in GR if you are looking for it!!

    I'm fascinated with the shots I see posted here. So many different photos of things I didn't notice or think about. I'd love to participate in an urban night shoot. Safety in numbers.

    I wasn't able to make the event due to my hand injury, but have recent photos that I've taken of downtown GR. Can I still submit them for the ArtPrize display and if so, how do I access the mentioned Photo Safari?

    I had a good time. I would have liked to chat with some of the people but every one was into taking their photos. Do any of you like to take lightning photos. We are going to have thunderstorms later this week.

      Sounds like fun!

      It would be a great photo op..if I weren't so terrified of thunderstorms and lightning. :P

    Thanks for everyone who came out. I'm just sorry I wasn't able to meet more of you. I had a great time, and the weather turned out really nice.

    It's too hot for me

  • Diane O.

    So bummed...I was really looking forward to this, but I just had therapy on my right (primary) hand for tendonitis and it is hurting pretty bad and the idea of working a camera today, just sounds too painful. Hope there will be another event like this down the road.

    Sorry, unable to attend after all. Maybe next time! Thank you!

    Are we meeting out in front of the library

  • Mitzi F.

    I am looking forward to learning and having a lot of fun

  • Deb S.

    Do you just show up or do you need to sign up somewhere?

    June 12, 2013

    • Berni K.

      Deb, you need to confirm your attendance through this site. Then, show up at the Library on the 24th.

      June 13, 2013

    • Steven S.

      There really is no rule you need to confirm here. It's nice when people confirm, just so we get an idea of how many are coming. But no one is getting turned away due to them not confirming. Also, this is a public library event. We couldn't turn anyone away even if we wanted to. Which we don't. :)

    Looking forward to it!

    I'm looking forward to it. I've never done a photo walk with a group before.

    I did this on my own a few weeks ago! Found some amazing things! Maybe I'll teach Dianne, some things! Can't wait to find and share!

    I'm looking for an assistant for the evenings of June 6th and 9th in Saugatauk. That's this Thursday and Sunday. Can anyone help? Thanks

      You might get more replies if you add something in the discussion groups. There are also several local groups that have presence on Facebook.
