A little break from the harbors series – last Saturday (2010-07-24) was the third World Wide Photo Walk, the first for me to take part. Exciting to know there were 1111 walks all over the world with a whopping 31960 registered walkers, all enjoying photography and each others’ company on the same day! I chose to take part in Almere because I’d never been there before: Jantheo was the ‘leader’ and had devised a route with the theme ‘color’. So much fun to see that even before we had reached our target area, people were shooting off in all directions, finding color and doing their own ‘thing’: the modern architecture could wait, there was water, and plants, and wall paintings, and – well – photographers! :)

A nice extra on the photo walk in Almere was a ‘mini filter workshop’. I got to try a very nice circular polarization filter – and finally, I’m sold. See Of blue skies and shiny surfaces for more background. I did not test it systematically, but I did play with it…

Here I was aiming to maximize the effect of the sky reflected in the green glass screen wall of the WTC building, so the circular polarizing filter was twisted back to a ‘neutral’ position. What I like here is that you can see how the reflectiveness depends on the angle of the light: closer by the angle is not as shallow and the interior shines through while in the back the reflection is like in a mirror, so the building almost disappears.
