Shutterbugs Participate in Worldwide Photowalk

On Saturday, July 18, 2009, four Shutterbugs were among over 32,000 photographers who participated in the 2nd annual Worldwide Photowalk. Groups of no more than 50 persons each met at over 900 different locations. The Shutterbugs shown in the picture (front row, L-R: Jennifer Campbell and her children (Paige and Trevor), Dianne Kelly, Johnnie Ann Gaskill, and Joan Phillips) met at Callaway Gardens for a "walk" hosted by Amanda Johnston, far right, who took the photo. Johnnie has been notified that one of her photos was chosen as the "winner" for that location and will advance to the finals in the worldwide competition. Results will be announced by August 17th.
