Downtown Photo Walk

I’m a member of a local Meetup photography group.  We meet sporadically about once a month and each meetup takes us to various locations within our area.  Sometimes there is a theme to consider for the outing to make it interesting or sometimes it’s focused on practicing a specific skill.

This month’s theme started out as ‘Indoor Asheville’ where we would try to capture interesting images in the shops of downtown Asheville, NC (with permission, of course).  However, Mother Nature provided us with an exceptionally beautiful warm winter January day and there was no good reason to be inside missing all the fresh air and sunshine!

So a last minute change to the theme made it ‘Outside Asheville’.  🙂  What a beautiful evening it was to stroll the streets of downtown.

I found an alley that led to a not yet open bar, but made for some really great moody images.

A walk toward Pritchard Park found a couple guys playing chess.

I cut through a parking garage and spotted this old building with blueish windows.

Meeting at a designated time after wandering around on our own, we found the night sky looking promising.  So a few of us gathered at the Asheville Skybar to finish the evening and watch a beautiful sunset.
