Flickr Halifax Photo Walk

Reading the NewsI created the Flickr Halifax group on Flickr last fall. My intention was to find photographers in and around Halifax who wanted to share their images of Halifax without restriction. The other Halifax related groups that I found on Flickr seemed to be a little too restrictive or not very engaging as a group.  Maybe it was just my bias but I couldn't find a group that seemed to share the same values as I did so I decided to start my own.

The group has grown to 47 members and 658 photos as of today and I'm really happy with those results.  I'm glad so many of my Flickr friends have joined in and helped make a great group.

Last week I organized the Flickr Halifax Photo Walk.  A little chaotic for the first one I've organized but we had a total of 8 people out (including myself) and everyone said they had a great time.  We certainly ended up with wonderful weather and I got to meet some photography friends that I had never met face to face before.  It was an awesome day.  I hope to have many more Flickr Halifax Photo Walks so stay tuned and keep an eye out for the next one if you missed this one.
