Scott Kelby Wideworld Photo Walk on Augustana Campus in Rock Island, Illinois
Our local "chapter" of the October 2012 Kelby Walk was great fun, but very rainy and wet! Eighty per cent of those pre-registered still showed up for the event and took plenty of great photos. Here's a link to a Flickr album where some of the shots taken that day are posted:
