Join me Saturday, October 1, 2011, on free photo walk in historic downtown Manteo waterfront on North Carolina's Outer Banks.  The event is part of the Scott Kelby WorldWide Photo Walk, with more than 900 scheduled walks, and 17,000 participating registered photographers, so far.

The idea is to gather with like minded photographers, explore the boardwalk-lined waterfront and surrounding area of historic seafaring Manteo.  The town features a wonderful mix of old and new, aesthetically-blended docks, shops, cafes, picket fences, and parks, all lining narrow old-town streets. The centerpieces are Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse – right on the docks, and a recreation of the Elizabeth II, the ship which brought the first English settlers to the New World. There are unlimited photo opportunities within just a few blocks, and there are no hills, making this a wonderful photo walk opportunity.  Afterwards, we'll gather for coffee and breakfast, sharing photos and stories.  If you wish, you can participate in a competition with images made during the event, with cool Scott Kelby prizes up for grabs at the local and worldwide level.

We'll start at 6:15am, Saturday, October 1.  Sunrise is at 6:57, so we'll have ample opportunities in the pre-dawn light, and then with the low light just after sunrise.

The event is free, open to photographers of all levels, but limited to the first 50 people that register.  Registration is required.  To register, and for more information, visit http://tinyurl.com/wwpw-manteo.

The same day, my friend and exceptional photographer, Matt Gibson, is also leading a free photo walk.  Matt's walk in Corolla, preceded by a cook out at his Nags Head gallery.  We are attending each other's walks, and encouraging participants to make a full day of it here on the Outer Banks by signing up for both walks!  Register for Matt's here:  http://tinyurl.com/wwpw-corolla.
