Last year, Theo and I went on the Worldwide Photo Walk. We loved it and decided to do it again this year.
Scott Kelby’s Annual Worldwide Photo Walk takes place in cities around the world. Photographers from all walks of life and skill level gather to explore, shoot, and just hang out. Our local organiser was Robert Groom. Robert is a creative photographer who was active in Melbourne’s photography scene until he moved to Tasmania. Last year, he organised the walk in the Kyneton. Theo and I almost sold all our possessions to move there and take up residence in a dilapidated mental asylum. Almost. This year, the walk was in Trentham. For a change, I snapped and processed all my images on my iPhone.
Nestled at the top of the Great Dividing Range mid-way between Woodend and Daylesford, Trentham is a charming country town about 97 kilometres (60 miles) north-west of Melbourne. With a population of about 1,500 people, Trentham is filled with colourful shops, good cafes, and pretty cottages. Like many Victorian towns, Trentham owes its foundation to gold. A railway line arrived in 1880. It declined in the 1950s and closed in the 1970s. The station is now the Trentham Agricultural and Railway Museum.
