Think color, think spirited, think unconventional and artsy...you must be thinking Wynwood, Miami's vibrant art district that pulses with energy and creativity, day and night. Wynwood is the soul of Miami's urban renaissance. It can be sophisticated or it can be eccentric. It can be teaming with life, or it can be a calm Sunday stroll. With its street art, galleries, restaurants, and throngs of diversity, it is the place to be in Miami, and a truly desirable place for any street photographer in search of "the moment".
Come join us on Saturday, December 7, at 11:00 a.m., as we use the streets of Wynwood as our palette for this year's photo walk. Participants will have the option to test Leica cameras throughout the morning's activity. What could be better than enjoying one of the world's premier art districts with a Leica in hand?!
This guided event is free to the public and all levels of experience are welcome. Bring your own camera or borrow a Leica. Participants will gather on the sidewalk adjacent to Trendy Studios at 196 NW 24th Street. Members of the Miami Street Photography Club will be on hand to serve as guides and answer questions.
Let us know that you're coming by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
