|Empty Streets, Utrecht, NL|
I was like a little kid at Christmas last night and this morning. I was meeting with a group of photographers much like the Cream City Photographers of Milwaukee. The Urban Photo Collective is a group of photographers in each of several cities around The Netherlands including one in Utrecht. Each month, they gather for a photowalk in a different part of town and there is a theme for the walk. That theme is the same for all the cities.
It was a great day. About eight photographers including myself attended the walk. Linda, Dennis, Matty, Eva and the rest were extremely welcoming and all spoke english that I could get to know each a little. However, I need to improve my Dutch just to make it a little more fair. But, what a great group of people. The theme, ‘Empty Streets’, gave us all some focus and the walk took place in a section of Utrecht that is lined with small homes on small streets . . . seven of them to be exact. You can read more about it on the Urban Photo Collective. I can’t wait to see what’s posted on Flickr nor can I wait until next month.
