It's been awhile since I wrote on this blog, so I figured it's time to write about the walk I did during the 9th Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk that occurred on October 1st, 2016. This year I took part in the one that happened in Malmö, Sweden (I've done the walk in Copenhagen a few times before).
It was quite a large group of photographers (I think more than the 50 that was the maximum) so we weren't exactly inconspicuous as we made our way through the streets of town, quite the opposite in fact! Fortunately, as it often goes with photographers, the large group dispersed into various smaller groups so that we didn't all photograph each other all the time...or exactly the same things (although from looking at shots uploaded by other participants we most often did shoot the same things...albeit from slightly different angles).
After walking through Gamla Väster (the western parts of downtown, where there are a few buildings left from the 17th and 18th century) We set our sights on Slottsparken, the large park surrounding the old Citadel and the botanical garden there. I've always enjoyed walking through the parks of Malmö, because the scenery is so diverse, depending on the people enjoying the park, the light and the time of year. This year we've had a bit of a delayed fall, so it was still warm-ish when we did the walk and the leaves hadn't really started to turn yellow yet.
After the botanical garden we accidentally came across the runners from the Malmö Half-Marathon huffing and puffing their way past the old Citadel, so of course there were quite a few pictures taken there, before we made our way towards Turning Torso, the most famous building in town and ended the walk there. All in all an enjoyable day spent strolling through the city with other photographically inclined nerds! Who knows where the 10th Worldwide Photowalk will be spent...that's for next year to reveal!
