Last weekend, Theo and I attended the Worldwide Photo Walk.
The Worldwide Photo Walk is a social photography event in which photographers all over the world gather to walk around, shoot photos, and just hang out. I don’t fancy myself much of a photographer and my point-and-shoot camera sticks out in the sea of fancy cameras, but Theo is an enthusiast, and we both enjoy going out and snapping away.
The local walk was organized by Robert Groom and took place in Kyneton, a town in the Macedon Ranges region, about an hour from Melbourne. Established in 1850, it is a lovely town full of old bluestone buildings. Naturally, about 10 minutes after we arrived, Theo and I decided we wanted to sell the house in Melbourne and move to Kyneton. This happens often when we visit country towns, but Kyneton is special. It has a marvelous if slightly creepy abandoned old hospital. That’s where we want to live when we win the lottery and can afford $2 million in restoration.
