web siteA friend of mine told me to check out the Camera Walking blog and on Facebook. My first thought was I wished that I had thought of that name before Carol Vipperman and Michelle Burkheimer. Combining creativity, fitness and health they photograph the world as they walk.

I’ve been doing this for years to give myself a reason to get some exercise. On those rainy or foggy mornings where I would prefer to stay in the warm house it’s my camera that gets me out the door. Whenever I travel I like to get up early and talk a walk with my camera. It’s a great way to force yourself to pay attention to the surroundings as you walk.

Carole and I share a love of walking around Seattle. Whenever I’m there for work I head out walking in the Queen Anne area near the Space Needle. I’ve posted a few of my photos but be sure to check out the Camera Walking site to see Carole and Michelle’s photos.
