Storytelling with a photo walk

Photography fascinates me as another way of telling stories. What does the photo mean to the photographer and what does it mean to the person who perceives it. The convenience of my iPhone overrides my efforts to learn how to use a “real camera”. Therefore, my photos tend to be stories of the moment shared on social media through the convenience of iPhone apps.

My “real camera” learning comes from Wikimedia Denmark expeditions to places that need photo documentation or from a friend who says “let’s walk around somewhere and take photos”. That is what happened today, and that friend blogged about our photo adventures for your reading pleasure so that I can take the easy way out and just link to his blog post!

After about an hour of freezing for the sake of photography, we found a warm café where we could discuss taking pictures, blogging, and the effort of sharing those photos and blog thoughts in a timely fashion. 🙂

Here are a few of my favourite photos from today. Click the photos to go to their Flickr page, or use this link to go to my album of today’s photos.
