Photo Walk – London

12 May

London Bike with Balloon

This past weekend I was in London for the inaugural blogging conference, Blogtacular. It was an amazing experience and I met some very talented women. Lots of valuable information to digest so I plan to recap my experience in more detail in the coming weeks. Although each workshop was incredible, one was particularly special – a London photo walk with Xanthe Berkeley. If you don’t know Xanthe, I encourage you to pop on over to her site. She is an expert at capturing life’s special moments.

The photo walk was about 1.5 hours long. Before leaving the conference venue, we each chose a balloon to take along. Photography is much more fun with props! I (of course) zeroed in on a pink heart shaped balloon. Here are a few fun shots from the walk.

Have you ever done a photo walk? It certainly got my creative juices flowing!

    That looked like such a fun blogging conference! The photo walk is such a cute idea, I really want to do something like that in Chicago. I think balloons are the best prop, especially on a sunny day. 🙂

    ps- your shoes are adorable!
