Hi everyone!

We've been keeping a close eye on the growing concern and spread of COVID-19 and have decided that it is in the best interest of our communities to officially postpone the upcoming Flickr Worldwide Photowalk Day on April 4th, 2020.

We would rather keep you and others around you safe and healthy so you can take even more photos and share them on Flickr. Once we have determined a new date for this event, we will be sure to announce it as soon as we can.

Thank you for your understanding and we'll still see you and your work on Flickr!

A shame but I'm guessing it's best to make the decision a few weeks out. I know some people in the London Flickr group had already booked trains etc....... We'll wait to hear about a date for the rescheduled date.

On the plus side this has brought some attention to our new group and it's doubled in size since the email went out last week.......

Thanks for the update. I was actually hoping to promote it as a potentially safer activity in fresh air, but I understand the concerns.

A safety reminder, stay at home with hope that we will come out of this crisis more united, stronger human beings sharing much more and better shots in near future.

Ohh Dear.. I was looking forward to it and did not realise that it was postponed. I have left my home this morning 6.30 am on my bike going all around West London, Central and City of London. it was an amazing and such weird feeling as London really is like a ghost town. On the other hand i needed to leave home and be on my bike as I was "suffocating" at home

I'm toying with the idea of a virtual Photowalk for the London group although the emphasis would be on people raiding their archives rather than taking photos.

Over the course of a day (or a week) I would post a new group thread with a location from the route I'd originally planned and then people would post photos from that location. The emphasis would be on sharing ideas, asking questions etc. If nothing else it would act as a good advert for the Photowalk once it were reoganised.......

At the moment I'm still trying to establish a level of interest but if this goes ahead it would start Sunday 19th April at 2pm GMT. More info here : www.flickr.com/groups/londonflickrgroup/discuss/721577138...

Plans for a virtual London 'Photo Trail' are coming together nicely. Details will be announced tomorrow in the London Flickr Group : www.flickr.com/groups/londonflickrgroup/

Darrell Godliman says:

The London Flickr Group will launch their virtual Photo Trail at 2pm tomorrow, Sunday 26th April and it'll run over the course of a week.

Locations featured will follow the route of the postponed London Photowalk. We'll start at the Monument to the Great Fire of London, 'travel' through the City of London and head east to Spitalfields and Brick Lane. The idea is to post photos from the locations as they're announced, two locations / subjects per day. There will be a mix of well known locations, a few more 'off the beaten track' as well as a few more generic subjects like 'Red Phone boxes' and 'London Street Art'.

This isn't a competition and everyone is welcome to take part by contributing photos, interesting fact / stories about the locations and of course constructively commenting on and favouriting photos that catch their eye.

More details here for anyone interested : www.flickr.com/groups/londonflickrgroup/discuss/721577140...
