I went for a walk in Mercer County Park today. I wasn’t alone. I walked with a small group of local photographers — amateurs and pros. We were participating in the 5th Annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk. Our walk leader was Alina Bilach a well known and respected local photographer.

I attend these photos walks because I love meeting and chatting with other photographers. The social aspect of photography is important to me. I talked to an elderly woman who told me about her son and grandchildren and shooting with wide format film cameras. I talked to a woman who had bought a new camera and needed some help learning to use it. Later at Brother’s Pizza, we found out we both had Type 1 diabetes. I think she is the only adult with Type 1 that I know in the area.
