City Walking – Week Two!

| June 21, 2013

We had a great, fun first week with our photo competition “City Walking” – Winners here

We’re going to change the rules a little bit this time – it is going to make it a little bit more tricky for you, but we want you to be thinking about your photography and getting something out of the experience, too.

This week we want you to TAKE the photograph for this photo competition – you need to be able to show EXIF (unless you shoot film, in which case I’ll have to trust you and I’m a trusting kind of guy)

THEME : CITY WALKING – You can interpret “City Walking” any way you would like, and, if you live in the country – show us the opposite of city, show us small town walking.. country road walking… most of all – get creative.

You can use whatever camera you have, a mobile phone camera or a PhaseOne, we don’t mind…

You have until MIDNIGHT, 27th June (Midnight Santa Rosa time) to post your entry in the comments below. 

Here’s MY entry – I was out shooting today with the new Sigma 120-300mm and this “city” type guy was “walking” through the garden to take a photo of the bridge…



  • Copyright always remains yours. We only ask that we may use your photo here on the blog or in our social media and only in relation to THIS competition.

  • Everyone is OK to enter, as long as your country allows photography competitions.

    Hi Everyone and Thinktank, my fav bag people!! 🙂

    I have dragged my photography bag all around the world….

    When I think “City Walking” I think “souvenir foot photos”.

    So I’ve made a competition for the competition!!?? Haha !!

    You can try to guess the countries these images have been taken in, in the correct order. The options are Australia , Hong Kong , Thailand , Wales , Great Britain and Indonesia.

    Have fun!!

    “walking” through the rain-filled gutter is too slow for this “city” kid after an evening rain storm in Everett Tuesday night.

      Very happy to see a photo of Dali posted here. My hometown Kunming is about 200 miles away from Dali. Love this small town!

      If I may, I would like to translate the Chinese characters on the wall to English.

      “Love every blade of grass, every tree. Conserve every drop of water. Protect every inch of land.”

      • Peh Siong San

        Thanks June for translation. This one of the old town at the west coast of Er Hai! Super like it…

        • Jun White

          Yes, the west side of Er Hai is very pretty. Glad you enjoyed it!

    I was in a small town called Dawlish in the UK and saw this couple that looked like they had some kind of disagreement as they are facing away from each other and looking very displeased with each other. But the fact that they are still linking arms seems to indict that they still care and love one another.

  • Mary Miller

    There is definately no city walking for us! I live in the Smoky Mountains about 3800′ on top of a mountain. The chance of seeing a long-legged spider or other insect is about what we get during the day! This spider was walking on one of my flowers.

    “First Walk to the Ocean” A baby Loggerhead Sea Turtle walks to the Atlantic Ocean at the Riviera Beach, Florida Beach. I guess you could say the hatchling is walking out of Riviera Beach! LOL! Anyway, if this turtle is lucky enough to survive a few years it will be six feet long and several hundred pounds before returning to the beach to lay eggs. You said you wanted EXIF info: Shot 06-21-13, Aperture priority, EV = -0.3, 1/160 second, ISO 800. Let’s just say it was dark, early in the morning when the photo was taken.
