World Wide Photo Walk 2014 - first, The High Line, then, Lower Manhattan & the Brooklyn Bridge. Meh. Not my best work. Full set here.

My best laid plans … for an epic, three-part, nine-hour NYC photowalk

Scott Kelby’s Annual Worldwide Photowalk is next weekend, October 11th; 18,000+ photographers will take part in over a thousand walks. I want to do three. In New York City. In one day. 

This is my AMENDED plan:

  • Start at Union Square Park for this photowalk from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. Assuming the forecast 97% chance of rain is correct, I opted to skip this one and get some work done this morning instead. Side benefit: I expect to have time to seek out a killer burger for lunch before my first walk. #winning
  • When finished, skip over to 500 West 30th Street for this photowalk on The High Line from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
  • After that, jump a cab and get to City Hall Park for the grand finale, this monster five-hour photowalk into Brooklyn, led by Johnny Lam, from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
  • Assuming I can still stand upright afterwards, I’ll need to find a taxi to take me back to Union Square, where my car will be, about 20 minutes away.
  • Then, I’ll drive home, which, depending on traffic, should take just over 2 hours. 

If the weather holds, and I pull this off, I expect to capture some of the most amazing pictures I’ve ever taken.

Right now, the forecast calls for rain. All day. And all night.

We shall see…
