Next Worldwide Flickr Photowalks on July 9th/10th!


We’re putting a call out for the next worldwide Flickr photowalks and we want you all to join with other Flickr members in the fun. Mark your calendars for July 9th/10th and prepare yourself for a great time with Flickr friends new and old. Check out the Flickr Worldwide Photowalks group for more details and discussions.

In case you’re looking for a theme for these worldwide Flickr photowalks, we’d recommend you bust out your macro lenses and get a little closer. Whether you’ve got a powerful 5x zoom for your DSLR or you use an OlloClip on your phone, you can get up close and discover a whole new world.

Because the suggested theme is macro and because the Macro Mondays group is one of the most engaged Flickr groups, we’re partnering with them and encouraging you to upload the photos you take from the photowalk to their group. The Macro Mondays’ theme for Monday, July 11th, will be Macro Textures. We hope you’ll get some great macros and that you share them in their group as well.

If you are organizing a photowalk in your area, please announce it in photowalk locations thread here. You may also want to let people know on the Facebook event page.

We look forward to seeing some of the amazing macro textures you take and to hearing the great stories about your event.
