The great thing about the blogging world is the wonderful community of creatives that you can share your passion with, and yesterday I did just that. The lovely Laura from Cardboard Cities recently got in touch suggesting it could be fun to host a photo walk in Bristol. As I'm always up for fun, I immediately said I would help out and we pulled together a date and released it on twitter. The next day I was both equally surprised and thrilled to see that in less than 24 hours all the spots had been filled and we officially had a photo walk to plan!
Yesterday our plan came together and we met up with a fab bunch of ladies who had travelled from Wales, Bristol and Oxford to join in, and the weather could not have been more perfect. For those who aren't familiar with the concept of photo walk, it's pretty much what it says on the tin.
We planned a rough route with some visually appealing destination points along the way and made some goodie bags filled with confetti, heart balloons, street chalks and other small pieces to have fun with. It was great to see everyone take photos, be inspired and network, and it's always great way to finally meet up with virtual friends in real life!
We created a #cliftonphotowalk hashtag for Instagram and twitter so people could see what we were up to and most of the ladies were sharing their day on snapchat too. We spent a good four hours out and about, and the kiddo even joined us for ice cream towards the end. Here are some of my favourite Instagram pics from the day.

Go check out their feeds and follow them, they're a great bunch of ladies. We're hoping to do another one, as we didn't expect it to be so popular and we'll hopefully try a new location in Bristol to discover some hidden gems. If you're interested in coming along do let me know and Laura and I can send you an email when it the date is released. It would be lovely to see you there!
