Cambridge Photowalk

Posted in Abstract, Colour & Form, Personal

I took part in Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, which saw 7,500 photographers in 230 locations around the world go out together and take photos of their home cities. As I’ve lived in Cambridge for a long time, and photographed many of the buildings and scenes, I decided to start on a project that has been long overdue – creating a “Colour & Form” montage of my home town. I’ve already created several of these from other places I’ve visited, notably France, Costa Rica, Barcelona, South Africa and Italy. I managed to put together this rather nice one from a 2 hour walk through town. I now have plenty of ideas for creating a dozen more “Colour & Form” montages for Cambridge, so I’d better get cracking!
