About This Walk
Join the Downtown McKinney, Texas photo walk!
Why fight the traffic to go all the way to downtown Dallas when you can join the FREE 2018 Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in beautiful Downtown McKinney!
We’ll meet in front of Landon’s Winery in Downtown McKinney, then spend the next 2-2.5 hours walking around downtown, the square and the surrounding areas, taking pictures of whatever catches our eye. (That could be whatever you’d like, including architecture, street photography, closeup details, abstracts, etc. I may try to get a model to shoot as well.After the walk, somewhere around 12:00 – 12:30, we’ll meet in front of Square Burger and either go in there or one of the other restaurants in downtown to grab a bite for lunch, share our images, and talk photography.
There are also local photo contest where I will select the best image from our walk to win a prize, and that image will be submitted to Kelby Worldwide and will compete against the winners from all of the other walks worldwide.
Photo Contest Winner Selected / All Entries Posted in Facebook GroupOctober 16th, 2018
I have selected the winner of the Downtown McKinney Photowalk and posted it and the other entries in our Facebook group. All of the entries were excellent and deserving of high praise, and my decision was an extremely difficult one.
Unfortunately, the names are not associated with the photo submissions, so I can’t announce the winner. (If you are not on the FB group, the winning photo is in submissions and is the black & white photo of the father and his little daughter). If the winning image was yours, please identify yourself either by emailing me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by tagging yourself in the post on Facebook.
Thanks to everyone that submitted contest entries, and a big THANK YOU to everyone that came out and participated in the walk.
Until next year, photographically yours,

4 Days Until the Downtown McKinney Kelby Worldwide PhotowalkOctober 2nd, 2018
It’s only 4 days until we meet at the Downtown McKinney Kelby Worldwide Photowalk!!! I hope you are looking forward to it as much as I am. The weather looks like it will cooperate, with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to high 70’s. Be sure to bring a hat, water, and sunscreen, as I want everyone to be safe while enjoying the Photowalk.
We will meet in front of the Landon Winery at the corner of W. Louisiana and N. Kentucky across from the Performing Arts Center in Downtown McKinney. After some brief introductory words (very brief), we will head out and photograph anything and everything. There are parking lots at various locations around downtown, so you should have no problem locating a spot. If for any reason you are running late, or have any other questions, feel free to call me on my cell phone at 214-308-1751. And if there are any functions on your camera that you are not sure of, bring your camera’s manual and we will figure it out together.
See y’all on Saturday!
