Worldwide Photo Walk: A second local walk has opened

There are still plenty of slots available for the Stellenbosch walk I mentioned in my previous post but a second local walk has been announced that will follow a route from Muizenberg to St James and back. This walk also has plenty of slots available so there is now a choice for locals. Bear in mind though that the walk has a theme this year of “Monuments and Historic Places” so if you want to try and stick to the theme, the Stellenbosch walk might offer more along those lines.

Worldwide Photo Walk

The annual Kelby Worldwide Photowalk is almost upon us again, and it’s the 10th anniversary year. The date of the event is 7 October 2017 and there is one local walk scheduled so far for Stellenbosch. Go and join this walk or keep an eye on the site for other walks that might be planned for the Cape Town area. Or if you have an organisational bent, why not offer to lead a walk yourself.

The Image Says it All

Fellow member Florian Breuer writes,

Hi All,

this is the first time I’ve ever been part of an exhibition: at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town. The opening is next week Thursday. Unfortunately my name has been misspelled on the invite, but they promise to get it right everywhere else 🙂

You’re welcome to come and have a look.

Best regards,
Florian

Wiki Loves Monuments launch event in Cape Town this Saturday

20128301541_ (310)

Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public competition where you can photograph the monuments that symbolise our cultural heritage (buildings, statues, shipwrecks, etc.) and share the photos with the world by uploading them to Wikimedia Commons: a database of freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute and which anyone can use. In 2012, the very first South African WLM competition will take place, organised by Wikimedia ZA.
