Having it planned and ready we headed out to the photo walk early. We met up on the river bank for an easy walk. The weather was stunning with a day overcast but just warm enough to be very pleasant. http://quietwalkblog.com/ came with hand outs and several cameras. Brooke from Barnibee photography also came along. We hiked and about a 1/2 mile along the river, taking our time and clicking pics as we went.
Once we got back to the car it was decided that we could pull together a scavenger hunt in a way to compare and share our walk and our photos.

For both homeschool parents and any parent or adult who wishes for a way to interact with a teenager or young adult, I think the photo walks are a perfect opportunity. They offer a chance to be artistic in their own outlet and while Oden has an actual camera most kids now have cell phones with cameras that can achieve amazing images. Build a list, borrow a list and go for a walk out the front door, take a short drive to a place you have never been or head out to a young person favourite place. Let the hunt begin start your own blog, share on Facebook, or print up for the wall.
I encourage all my friends with kids old enough to not drop the tool they use to join us on our scavenger treks. Thanks to Quitewalkphotogrphay and to Barnibee Photography for taking the time.
