Tampa Photowalk a Success!

I just wanted to give a shout out to all of the Tampa (Hyde Park) photo-walkers from Saturday. We had a GREAT time! It was 1) hot, 2) it even rained a little, 3) we were harassed by Hyde Park security, 4) some one fell and dropped/broke their D70 and lens (she’s ok though and now seems quite content at the need to replace her older D70 with a D300). But it didn’t dampen the spirits of anyone there. Seriously, I had a blast and everybody there was great. Just about all of the 50 who showed up even stayed for lunch (which was also really good) and that gave us some time to actually talk inside (where it wasn’t 95 degrees 🙂 ). For me, it was the epitome of what a photo walk should be – people out shooting in a local neighborhood and, more importantly, having a great time socializing with each other. My sincere thanks to everyone in the group for making this past Saturday the best photo walk I’ve ever been on.
