I always enjoy photographic outings in and around Siouxland. One never knows what one might come across.  I recently attended a photographic Urban Walk in Omaha with some friends of the local camera club of Sioux City. We and other interested photographers assembled at a camera store in Omaha, NE that provides classes and occasional outings and it was interesting to hear others talk about exploring local landscapes and talk with fellow enthusiasts, most being from the Omaha area. Instructors were on hand to help guide those needing assistance as was a gentleman from Sigma who brought along an assortment of lenses that those attending the class could try out, from extreme telephoto to ultra wide angle. The walking tour centered around the Durham Museum and Old Market in Omaha.

Many of us just spent the time wandering and looking and taking photos. It was a nice way to spend a day with overcast yet no rain weather. Although at times the skies threatened a downpour judging by the thunder claps, it never happened, or rather, passed by the area we were photographing in.

As I tell students who attend my photography classes at a local community college, what a great way to spend a day, just taking photos and enjoying the experience.
