There is no doubt it is April with the volatile weather, what is the appropriate outfit for hail and sunshine, and wisteria hysteria in full swing! If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed a flurry of Cambridge snaps over the weekend with the tag #cambridgecreativesphotowalk. I had really wanted to go on the last Cambridge Creatives photowalk, organised by Claire from Claireabellemakes and Jo from Hello Sunshine, and the pictures showed how much fun they had despite the pouring rain, so when I saw they had another one planned it went straight in the diary.
I managed to sneak in a quick sprint round the shops and a lovely iced coffee at Novi before heading over to Parker’s Piece to meet everyone. There was no need to worry about not finding the group, this photowalk was free to attend and around 70 of us turned up! Claire and Jo managed to make everyone feel welcome handing out good bags and heart shaped balloons alongside a beautiful map incase any of us got lost!
The walk was a real eye opener for me, I was thrilled to discover new parts of Cambridge as we went down streets many of us had never ventured down and were rewarded with beautiful doorways and more wisteria than our group could handle. There was no denying the wisteria hysteria with this lot! Everyone happily and patiently waited their turn for selfies, boomerangs and Instagram shots at the wisteria pit stops.
Claire and Jo had been to the Cambridge Satchel Company in the morning and brought along a selection of their beautiful bags for us to borrow. These bags are beautifully designed and made, I don’t know how you begin to choose a favourite.
I had such a wonderful time meeting everyone and catching up with friends. We were so lucky with the weather and enjoyed delicious gelato from Jack’s Gelato en route. We finished the walk with a lovely picnic which gave us all a chance to natter and rest our weary feet. I would definitely recommend go on a photowalk to discover new and beautiful areas of towns, cities and countries if you can.
Nearly everyone who attended is still posting lovely pictures on Instagram from the day on the tag #cambridgecreativesphotowalk, go check it out. I know not everyone understands the buzz around Instagram but there is a wonderful community hidden in there, it is so fun when you can meet the people behind the grids, and it offers a fun window on the world.
I found the photowalk got my creative side buzzing again so I’m hoping to start up some little projects if I can just find some time, midnight to 3am perhaps?! I’m also quietly working on some trickier blog posts so watch this space, it is just taking me a while to get the words right. Please do drop me a line if there is anything in particular you would like to see me write about. For now I will leave a few more photos from the walk!
