If you’re a member of social media sites like Facebook or Twitter, and you have an interest in photography, you’ve probably discovered there’s a strong network of Wichitans with a passion for photography.
Wichita PD detective Ken Davis, and Heroes bar manager Darrin Hackney (now there’s an unlikely duo) are using social networking to try and get as many shutterbugs out and about as they can this Saturday.
The two have organized a “Photo Walk” and they’re hoping that anyone with an interest in photography joins them.
Ken describes it this way on his blog: “Here's how it works: You simply walk around with a group of people and take photos. It's that easy! Take pics of whatever interests you or anything cool you see. Take pics of buildings, people, colors, textures, shapes, patterns, etc. I might even bring a list of ideas just to get you started.”
Any skill level and any camera type is welcome. Blow the dust of your Polaroid. Bring your fancy digital SLR. Even a disposable camera would be welcome. The photos above and below are from past photo walks.
Here are the details:
Date: Saturday May 23rd
Time: 9 AM to 11 AM
Where: The Delano District
The walk meets in the north end of the Lawrence Dumont Stadium parking lot and will make its way to Douglas.
