on wednesday (the 20th april) i set off to clifton, bristol to take a lot of photos, and do a lot of walking. the ‘twist’ is that i had arranged with lori, to do a photowalk with a group of like-minded, creative, photo taking ladies!
if you’re not familiar with the concept of a photowalk, it’s actually quite self explanatory. you walk around (normally with some sort of route in mind) taking photos along the way. i do it myself a lot, but it’s such a different experience – and more fun – with other people.
i’m often frustrated with the lack of blog events and such in my area of cardiff, south wales in general and nearby places like bristol and bath, as everything seems centered in london. creative blogging folk are everywhere! so, i wanted to do something that was closer to home.
i chose bristol because of it’s beautiful houses, shops, and the ‘buzz’ it seems to have. as lori is local to the area, she was the perfect person to team up with. i made an eventbrite page to assist with invites, and we ‘sold out’ in less than 24 hours! she was so amazing and kind in arranging a route (as well as a little commentary along the way) as well as putting together some goody bags for everyone.
i would love to do something like this again in bristol, as well as cardiff (obviously), south wales in general, and maybe even something in pembrokeshire if i get the chance to go back. tenby would be perfect for this!
it was such a wonderful day, weather wise, but mostly for the opportunity to meet and network with other bloggers, with the common goal of documenting our day in photos. we created a hashtag for instagram and twitter #cliftonphotowalk where we shared moments of our day. love looking through and seeing everyones different perspectives!
hope you enjoyed my photos and video, and if you want to come along to the next one, let us know! remember to check out everyones blogs and the #cliftonphotowalk hashtag to see more photos from everyone.
also, if you live in cardiff (or just fancy a visit) feel free to contact me any time if you want a wander around with cameras in tow. always, always up for that!
