Hampton Roads Tweetup Photowalk 05-03-09 Graphic

John Cachero Photography is organizing the May 2009 Hampton Roads Tweetup Photowalk to take place in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia.  For the past month, I've been vigorously trying to find all the creative minds in Hampton Roads who are on Twitter, and now that I've found quite a handful of you, I wanted to bring us all together.  Whether you're a photographer or not, whether you own a camera or not, even whether you're on Twitter or not, feel free to join us.

Vital Information:

  • Sunday, May 3rd, 2009 at 1pm

  • Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia

  • The photowalk will start and end at The Bier Garden (438 High Street, Portsmouth, Virginia 23704)

  • Hash tags: #HRVA (Hampton Roads, Virginia) #tweetup #photowalk

  • Follow @HRVAphotowalk for tweets regarding this photowalk

Tweeps Attending:

The Bier Garden is a great place for people to come early to eat lunch (and have a beer or two), as well as a great place for all of us to meet at the end (and have a beer or two).  No time has been set for the duration of the photowalk, nor has a route been established.  Honestly, I'm winging it here.  However, I've been itching to shoot in and around Olde Towne Portsmouth for quite some time now, and I figure the route will present itself naturally to us.

I will be updating this blog post as more information becomes available.  I'm open to any and all suggestions.


Update 1 - I created a Flickr group so that we can pool our photowalk photos in one place - Hampton Roads Virginia Photowalks - If you plan on sharing your photowalk photos on Flickr, please tag your photos "hrva050309".  Thanks!

Update 2 - @Tom has made me an assistant organizer at the official Hampton Roads Tweetup site, so I scheduled this tweet up there:  http://757.tweetups.org/calendar/10216576/ - If you're interested in keeping informed about other tweetups, you should become a member.

Update 3 - According to AccuWeather - http://snurl.com/h2xnb - we will be mostly cloudy with possible showers during our photowalk.  If you own a camera bag, be sure to bring it along in case we do get precipitation.  Rain or shine, I will be at The Bier Garden at 1pm to tweetup with anyone who shows up.
