About This Walk
Whether you’re a first-time participant or a seasoned attendee, welcome to the Winston-Salem Worldwide Photowalk! My name is Rhonda and I’m going to do my best to keep our walk organized and fun. This yearly event is all about embracing the joy of photography, so feel free to bring any camera(s) of your choice, including camera phones because they count too!
Our schedule begins with a meet-up at the northern end of Artivity on the Green Park. Let’s plan to assemble between 9:15 – 9:25 a.m., allowing us a little time to go over the suggested route, guidelines, and address any questions or concerns. Following this, we’ll have a two-hour window to capture the essence of the area, culminating in our final meetup location at 11:30 a.m., just outside the entrance of Camel City BBQ. For those interested, we can grab a meal together, share our photographic experiences, and get to know each other better.
Since we are walking in the morning, there should be plenty of available parking in the area where we will start and finish. There is free street parking, pay-by-the-hour garage parking, and pay-per-app parking in designated parking lots.
There is a discussion tab for our group, so take a quick moment to introduce yourself and ask any questions you might have before our walk. I have started the discussion with a recommendation for the walking path.
