Two years, 25 journeys, more than 300 photographers (professional & amateur) and one beloved city. I still find it hard to believe that two years have already passed for the shoot as you walk group’s events! It really seems like yesterday, perhaps because we never count our happy moments, and that time actually flies by!
The funny thing is that “Shoot as you walk” events are organized by the “We Love Tripoli” association when they could be an organization standing by itself. Almost a year ago, a photo exhibition was held at Nawfal palace that showed a collection of photos by the shoot as you walk photographers. Two seasons of Ramadaniyat followed that were a huge success because they showed the city’s life at night and in Ramadan. And recently a website was launched to gather all of the photos of the journeys and events, all the media appearances, videos and blogs. Check it out: www.shootasyouwalk.com
To my fellow shoot as you walkers, I wish you a very happy anniversary. To everyone who follows our updates and news and get to know the different faces of the old Tripoli, stay tuned for the upcoming journeys and you’re more than welcome to join us. In fact, the open facebook invitation always says:” In the aim of getting introduced to some of the historical quarters of Tripoli, and showing the world that our city is a place of peace and safety; “We Love Tripoli” group invites you to a shooting journey. Bring your traditional cameras, digital cams, mobile cams, video cams or just come as you are ;-)”
