As you know, it takes a Long Time to become friends with someone in the normal way. But, these photowalks are like Speed-Dating-On-Steroids-For-Friends. Everyone that shows up to these events are curious and kind — exactly the kind of people I like to hang out with. Beyond that, we have other huge overlaps in interests… Sci Fi, Post Processing, Technology, Exploration, Gadgets, Art, etc etc etc — It’s actually quite rare to find people that I enjoy talking to (!!!), so to have hundreds show up that have a heaps of common interests — well that takes all the sloppy “introductory stages” of becoming friends out of the equation. And then we can move on to just enjoying one another while we walk around and take photos. Trey Ratcliff

I wasn’t there but I know the feeling.
