Street Art, August 2nd

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

We are doing it again! Join us along Queen Street West for the Flickr Global Photo Walk on August 2nd; the theme will be Street Art.

This is an afternoon-only walk, but feel free to spend the morning hitting other street art spots in the city, some of which are highlighted on the map! (Let me know if you are willing to organise a morning walk.)

Date: Saturday, August 2nd.

Meet: 1:00pm at the intersection of Rush Lane and McDougall Lane (near Queen & Spadina). [Map]

Post-walk: Electric Mud BBQ, 5 Brock Avenue (Parkdale)
Note: They don’t take reservations, so we’ll try to be there by the time they open (6pm) to secure enough tables. If we fail, there are plenty of other options in the neighbourhood. This is Parkdale after all.

Hashtag: “TOPW:SA”
Flickr also said: Be sure to tag your uploads with #FlickrPhotoWalk to automatically upload your photos to the group. Consider also tagging the photos with #StreetArt and #YourCity (the name of the city where you’re organizing your walk).

Walk Leader: Thomas; if you are lost or want to join us at another time during our walk, I can let you know where we are.

Flickr10 Global Walk, May 4th

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

Thanks to Stephanie and Thomas for organising the walk.

Date: Sunday May 4th. (Yes, Sunday!)

Flickr is 10 years old, so they’ve picked Sunday May 4th as a global day of Flickr photo walks; given TOPW was born out of the Toronto Flickr meetups and our group has been on Flickr since we started (4½ years ago), it’s very fitting that we should participate!

Meet: Meet at 10:00am at Broadview Station. [map]

Lunch: we are split between *two* pubs — Prohibition and An Sibin Pub (both confirmed)

For those who are joining specifically for the #Flickr10 walk, we’ll meet on the Queen Street Bridge at 2pm. (Everyone is welcome to join us for any part / all of the walk, but the afternoon portion is what we’re calling the “official” Flickr10 walk.)

If you’ve not been on a photowalk before, check out our FAQ page.

Post-walk: Against The Grain (to be confirmed)

Hashtag: please use “TOPW:Flickr10″.
In addition to our regular tag, please add #Flickr10photowalk and your photo will automatically be added to the #Flickr10 Global Photo Walks group pool.

**If you’re joining us after the start, call us and we’ll let you know where we are (Stephanie = 647-230-6001).
