2013 Project 365

Project 365/270 – Follow the Yellow Brick Road


It’s been a marathon day, starting at 6:00 a.m. and a pre-dawn departure to Annapolis. Today was the day for the Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk.  Scheduled to lead 50 people through the streets of “Naptown” during the Power Boat Show and pre-game of the Navy/Air Force football game.

It was a day of failed herding of cats. There were about 20 people who no-showed, and within 15 minutes of starting the walk, the group dissipated and people went their own ways to shoot the town. At least the meeting spot at the end of the walk was planned at 11:00 a.m. A good number of weary, but happy photographers found themselves at the Rams Head Tavern and enjoyed the morning camaraderie  with fellow photogs.

This capture was from the brick laid road of Annapolis with the morning sunrise illuminating the red.

More images from today’s walk to follow tomorrow. Bella

  1. Stunning photo, Emily. Those bricks really glisten. 🙂 Glad you had fun, even though it didn’t quite turn out as planned. At least there was a happy ending in the pub. 🙂

  2. Herding cats is easier than dealing with people, which is why I’ll never lead nature hikes or kayak trips again, I’ve learned my lesson. I’m sorry that things didn’t go as you planned, but at least you got a blue ribbon photo out of the deal.

  3. I agree with quietSOLOpursuits.
    I think herding mosquitoes might even be easier! Ha!
    I feel peeps have gotten a bit ruder in the advent of texting and ‘being connected’. I’ve had dinner go cold, had to pay for unused camp sites, and have scalped concert tickets in the parking lot as that is when I got the text that someone had better plans. Last year my husband got stuck with a $1600. bill from a golf course for MIA’s for a bachelor party! The straw/camel’s back was when I planned a huge shindig for my bday (Jan 7). All RSVP ed they would be there, but only one couple showed. I plan very few group things now, but when I do, I expect no one to show (and don’t pay anything in advance), then I’m nicely surprised when they do. I don’t mean to be a downer! I actually feel better now that I’ve accepted that in my friends. I also attend things I SAY I’m going do, unless strapped down to a hospital bed!!

    • Now your stories really do make my skin crawl. How dare people be so inconsiderate. You wonder what lessons their parents taught them or how they got lost along the way. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had such disappointment from ‘friends’ and hopefully you have found better ones.
