Walk with Me, plus Giveaway

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Whenever I'm asked "which is the best camera?" I pretty much respond: "the one you have on you." In fact, most of the images in this book were taken with my cell phone simply because I always have it with me.

This is not only a book about street photography but a visual diary, or collection of quirky, unusual and sometimes just plain weird photos I've taken over the course of the last decade.

As a street photographer, I need to be an assiduous walker. My sneakers often take me to little known, hidden corners, seaweed strewn (and sometimes stinky) beaches and really cool back alleys of my rather small island city of Victoria, BC.

I've also included images of curiosities I've seen throughout my travels.
Everyone sees the world differently and this is my collection of the quirkiness that I call life.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  I love photos - taking them, looking at them, sharing them, everything about them! I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review Walk with Me.  Debra, girl with camera, has put together a wonderful collection of photos.  

Debra captures life all around her.  Everything from flowers, to people, to nick-nacks, to food to scenery, to life.  I would have loved to have wondered the world with Debra as she captured everything all around her.  She sees the details that we all seem to overlook.

Some of my favorite pictures are: 

  • the flowers (page 13)
  • need a hand (page 14)
  • the door and steps (page 34)
  • the barber shop (page 50)
  • the reflection of the building in the puddle on the sidewalk (page 72)
  • the seal (page 82)

I used to keep an instant camera in my camera and I would take pictures of my journeys and all the interesting things I saw along the way.  I taped them in a notebook along with quotes, jokes and thoughts. I am not sure why I ever stopped, but I think it was they stopped selling the film for the camera!

I enjoyed Walk with Me and the journey Debra took me on through her camera lens.  Walk with Me would make a great gift!

Debra Schoenberger aka #girlwithcamera

"My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me.

I am a documentary photographer and street photography is my passion. Some of my images have been chosen by National Geographic as editor's favourites and are on display in the National Geographic museum in Washington, DC. I also have an off-kilter sense of humour so I'm always looking for the unusual.
