A local photographer is stepping up to capture Vernon’s attention in a worldwide event.

On Saturday, the whole world will be walking during Scott Kelby’s seventh annual Worldwide Photowalk.

Taking place in cities around the world, photographers of all walks of life and skill levels gather together to socialize, share and inspire during this one-day, worldwide event.

Vernon is taking part in this event, which is being hosted by Fiona Green, a local photographer.

Anyone interested can meet at Justice Park (opposite the courthouse) at 12:30 Saturday and walk down 30th Avenue to downtown Vernon.

“There are many lanes, the famous murals, historic buildings to discover all throughout downtown,” said Green.

The walk turns onto 34th Street, then up 31st Avenue to take in the Greater Vernon Museum and the old railway building before wrapping back up at Justice Park around 2:30 p.m.

“This should be a really interesting photo opportunity for all levels of photographer, as there are so many things to shoot; reflections in windows, interesting historic buildings, people, moving objects etc, so enough to stretch all professionals and beginners alike,” said Green.

“It’s completely free to participate in the walk, but this year we’re Walking with a Purpose by encouraging all participants to donate as little as $1 to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya,” said Green.

You can make that $1 back and then some by entering your favorite shot from your walk into the contest, with a chance to win some amazing prizes.
