I spent a great day with my good friend Robert Pack photographing this small town. You can see some of my images on jonnolan.zenfolio.com in the Art section. There is not much on the Internet about this town but is a great place to have a photo walk. I do hope you will join us for another fun day. If time permits will can travel up to Daffodil Hill. There is one store in town that has lots of cold and warm drinks and food. We will meet at the Post Office at 9:00 am.
What is a Photo Walk? It’s a social photographic event where photographers both professional and amateur get together, to walk around with their cameras, shoot photos, and meet and greet other photographers and hopefully make new friends. In a way it is a form of “Street Shooting” which is defined by renowned shooter, Jim McGee: “Street shooting is about capturing unique images that tell a story about a place. Look for unusual signs, look for color and architectural details”.
