About This Walk

The 2017 Kelby photowalk date coincides with an area event, called “The Greater Quad-Cities Renaissance Faire”.  We have been invited to join the fun with our cameras and there should be ample photo ops!   The costumed event includes strolling acts, craft merchants, demonstrations,  stage shows, and jousting.  We may also walk to the banks of the Mississippi for some river shots before leaving the area.  Level terrain.  Several food vendors on the grounds.

The admission fee has been waived to our walkers, but a free-will donation would be a nice thank you to help support this event.   I hope you will also join me in sharing your best work with the event organizers as a way to say, “Thanks” .

This will be my ninth Kelby walk and the sixth one I’ve led.   I always look forward to the annual event…  It’s a good place to learn, meet new friends, advance your photography and besides that,   it’s always FUN!  Won’t you join us?
