About This Walk
This photo walk has something for everyone!
We’ll meet in Parking Lot 6 at the corner of W Francis Street and S Henry St. at 8:30 am. (GPS: 37°16’9.186″ N 76°42’22.548″ W)
As we begin our walk, we’ll travel back 250 years as we wander down Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg. Our mid-morning destination is the Capitol, at the end of DoG Street. Along the way, we’ll see interpreters in period costumes, colonial architecture, and perhaps George Washington on horseback. At 11 a.m., we’ll gather on the Palace Green for a group photo in front of the Governor’s Palace.
Finally, we’ll end our walk at Blue Talon Bistro, where we’ll enjoy an optional early lunch and chat about our photos. If you’d like to stay for lunch, we’ll be finished by about 12:30 or 1:00.
You do not need to purchase a ticket to walk through Colonial Williamsburg; there’s plenty to shoot outdoors. However, tickets are necessary to enter the gardens and exhibitions. You can buy one online or at a ticket booth that we pass. If you’re local and have a Good Neighbor Pass, be sure to bring it. If it’s raining… the exhibitions are the place to stay dry…
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone! I’m a Williamsburg-based travel photographer, blogger, and educator. You can learn more about me on my website: carolinemaryan.com. I’ve been on Worldwide Photo Walks in Virginia and Seoul, South Korea, and this will be the sixth time I’ve led this WWPW.
Our photoOctober 7th, 2023
I was hoping I could send out the photo through KelbyOne, but that doesn’t seem to be working. I learned a lot taking it! I’m going to write it up for my blog post, but I’m not sure if it will get done tomorrow. If you’re not reading my blog, it will be on my website, “carolinemaryan.com. ” Had a great time meeting or remeeting all of you today!!!
Some notes for tomorrow’s Worldwide Photo WalkOctober 6th, 2023
Welcome walkers! I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow! I have one update and two notes for you. The update is that the Farmers Market will be closed due to the Occasion for the Arts happening this weekend in Williamsburg. I’ve updated the walk description. Instead, we’ll go directly to Duke of Gloucester Street when we begin the walk. (If you’re coming in from out of town, you might want to stay on for the afternoon for the Occasion for the Arts. It’s well worth it!) Now to the notes: If you’re going to miss the walk or are arriving late, please send me a text! That way, we won’t wait for you. If you are arriving late, my husband, Skip, will come and find you and help you catch up! My cell number is 713-252-3186. The final note is that there may be some rain tomorrow. The current forecast is for “Rain showers early…” We definitely will walk, but you might want to bring a raincoat and something to cover your camera if it does indeed rain. ☔️ I’ll have some disposable shower caps for your cameras, too. See you tomorrow!
