From online to offline and back

I got the invitation for my first photowalk in Helsinki via Google+. On the photowalk in July I met people who told me about a local photo group in Facebook. After my second photowalk in Helsinki I now follow also the Facebook group, but I post most of my own photos in Google+:

It has been interesting to notice, how the online connections transform into real life connections, and how those in turn inspire new online connections.

Photowalk Helsinki II – part of Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk

My second photowalk in Helsinki was on 5.10.2013, which happened to be also a “Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk” day.

The walk leader was Heli Vilmi, assisted by Rich Hernigle and Don Trammell. Anyone was welcomed: no matter hobby, amateur semi-professional or professional photographer. I’ve attached links in the end of those whose pages I’ve found.

About 60 people signed up for the photowalk in Facebook and 20 in Google+ – the groups were partly overlapping. The crowd was again a multicultural one. The participants had roots in at least in following countries: Canada, Finland, France, Iran, Spain, USA and Turkey.
