So Julie MayRee Photography (AKA Jule MayRee Photography Designs) has gathered 6 vendors together for......

and what a fun walk it was! I joined in on Scott Kilby's 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk, by taking part in the Courtenay, BC walk. Unfortunately there wasn't a Campbell River walk organized, but I'll make sure to organize one next year, if no one else does! The Courtenay walk had about 26 photographers of various levels (including a cute little 4 year old with one of those Fisher Price cameras - Caitlin would be so jealous!), and went from Simms Park Gazebo, up 5th Street, and around a few blocks before meeting back up at Zoloco (or whatever that coffee place was called!). Here are some of the first shots - I have a ton so I'll spread them over a few blog entries so you won't get overloaded! ;)
I loved it... only in the middle of 26 other photographers would I not look out of place, lying down on the ground getting a picture up into the middle of the gazebo (at Simms Park)
Every sunday from May until October, Campbell River holds the Pier Street market. It's a wonderful collection of food, crafts, flowers/plants, and goodies with over 45 booths each time. This summer it was actually chosen as one of the top ten Farmer's Markets in Canada! I love taking the girls there just to wander through, so here are shots from our latest Farmer's Market excursion!
I just love the bright colours and textures of these handmade fleeces and wools.
Crystals - So I was trying to get my reflection in at least one of the crystals here, but the woman selling them got all upset and shoo-ed me away! As I walked away "you're lucky I'm letting you keep that picture you already took!" Hmmm, I guess she doesn't know the photography laws around here. ;)
Pier Ice Cream - The best thing about going to the farmer's market - Ice cream at the pier!
