Anyone interested in a photowalk in Havre de Grace? I have included a link that shows some interesting things to see and do. I would be willing to organize this if anyone is interested.

I would be up for this, I have actually never explored HDG and I live about 20 minutes away.

OK great to see some interest now lets talk dates? Saturdays are better for me. The last walk I went on we met early like 8 AM so we could explore the town before it started getting busy.

What exactly is a photowalk? I see a few links around about it but nothing that defines what it is.

I'd be down.

Saturdays are good for me as well.

Meabbott:

A photowalk is a f antsy name for a group of people that get together in a particular place to "walk" around and take pictures. Then they sometimes meet up at the end to compare shots and talk about what they saw. It can be a lot of fun to look at someone else's perspective of something you have shot as well.

Stacy: Hmm. Sounds interesting. I am interested in the Havre de Grace one. I haven't been there before.
stacysayzcheez 10 years ago
OK, so seems like we have some interest here. I am pushing for a Saturday so do we want to try and make it October or November? Let me know and I will start working on details.
meabbott PRO 10 years ago
Hmmm. For me late October or November around when the leaves are changing would be my vote.

OK there is some pirate thing going on Nov. 8th. So there will be an activity to photo is people want to do that, there will be other things to photo is people want to do that. So I think I will start planning for Nov. 8th. Look for details to come.

8th works for me.....any other details?

I will be going up this weekend to check out a possible route/place to meet/eat. I will report back with a time and place but am open to suggestions on what time folks would like to meet. Earlier seems better before the streets get too crowded and then you are shooting around folks.

So I will do some exploring this weekend and get back to you soon.

nail down a meeting spot yet?
stacysayzcheez 10 years ago
Because of the weather I didn't go last Saturday but am going regardless. I will post as soon as I return. Glad to see the interest is still there. I am looking forward to it.

OK hope everyone is still up for this. I went to Havre de Grace today to scope things out. There is lots of photo opportunities and there was nothing special going on today. November 8th there are lots of activities planned so that should add to the opportunities.

Here's the scoop. I live in Columbia MD and it took me a little over 30 minutes to get there. I took 95 North, you do have to go through the tunnel and there is a $2 toll. I got off at exit 89 and followed the signs to the attractions. Pretty easy. We can meet at one of the public parking lots, I can hand out the maps that show where everything is and then we can head out.

There are a couple of options here. Some of the places are close enough together that you could walk from one to another and others are a little farther out and you might want to drive and then walk around.


I would suggest getting there at 8:30 AM. That way you can get some shots of the town before it gets up and running. Also gives us a chance to meet and develop a game plan.

So let me know who is interested so I can make sure I have enough maps with me. Looking forward to it.

I'm just starting out with photography, but I did grow up in Havre de Grace. If you do this again, let me know as well. I'd be excited to meet some people who know what they're doing! (Plus there's some good food options!)
