virtualinstawalk Hey guys! It's @leftcoastadventures here with a little reminder on tags for hashtag for our next walk! Only 3 days away!!! So if your new to Virtualinstawalk it's pretty simple Take a walk! Could be anyplace you want! Even just around your yard if you want We have a two new tags for a live experience of your walk...#viw17_live can be a place to post still photos on your walk itself and then if you want to get creative and show us where your walking with the new video feature we've added #viw17_vids 1y
  •   virtualinstawalk Once you're done on your walk...you'll want to put a grid together of all your shots! The old school way was just taking a snap shot of your camera roll but you can also use apps like Diptic and PhotoShake to put them in a grid format however you like! And of course you could have several grids if you like!! Just make sure you tag them into #viw17_grids and font forget to tell us a little bit about where you walked! PLEASE ONLY POST GRID SHOTS IN THIS TAG 1y
  •   virtualinstawalk Over the next couple days or weeks (no time limit) edit and repost your pictures from your walk to #viw17 also tag our host @stepherzme she'll be looking through your shots and picking the next host! 1y
  •   virtualinstawalk You can also put together a tag to keep all your photos in one spot...for example #viw17_yourusername most importantly have fun! @gromitmagick @fooferann @chik_pea and myself are always here if you get lost! 1y
  •   leftcoastadventures Thanks @fooferann I see typos tho and I repeated the same words a lot I wish you could go back a d edit after you've posted... 1y

virtualinstawalk Hey there Instawalkers! @gromitmagick here. I was honoured to host #VIW11 back in the beginning of February 2012 and it ended up being the biggest walk in our 2 year history! Almost 60 walkers in 8 different countries tagged over 1000 images to the #VIW11 tag, and over 100 grids to the #VIW11_grids tag. It was amazing!
I was so amazed by the turn out that I put together this world map with a location marker for every walker. 🌍🌎 I'd really like to do a map for #VIW17 too because I get the feeling it's going to be our biggest walk yet! So if you would like a marker on the map for your location please post a little blurb including your location and the tag #VIW17_locations on JUST ONE of your walk images, either your starting grid or one of your edited posts. 🌎Once the walk is winding up I will put together another world map like this one and post it for you all to see!

  •   jaypro28 I'm in Northbridge Mass. About 30 minutes north of providence. I would love to see Warren. It's on my list of places to check out. We really have to plan a Providence meetup. I keep having this conversation with several RI IGers. (including @heartthrob_666 and @midlife_madness). Let's try to plan something. I'm on kik, too. Same username. 2y
  •   midlife_madness Yes, we should!! 2y
  •   midlife_madness @jaypro28 @heartthrob_666 We've been talking about it a bit. 2y

yoncie 15 of 16 So close to finishing my #viw11 grid. It's taken me so long that @gromitmagick, the host of VIW11 has just passed the torch on to @snappy_d_happy to host VIW12!!!! Anyway, this is one of many buildings erected in the 1800's probably having to do with the fishing or boatbuilding industries. I need to find out this particular buildings history. 2y

yoncie Edit 14? for my #viw11 which was hosted by the lovely @gromitmagick. My walk took me down Water St in Warren RI. This was some sort of delicate purple cabbage like plant. It had a wonderful texture, but I just wasn't sure what to do with it once I started editing, so, here it is . Next walk, I choose more carefully, lol! 2y

gromitmagick Hey there Virtual Instawalkers. I would like to (finally!) introduce the next host for the next Virtualinstawalk #viw12 @snappy_d_happy!
For #viw11 he did an amazing walk around an old abandoned power station. The pic above is one of his. He pushed himself trying new editing techniques for each of his pics and included heaps of information about the place and subject in each as well.
So officially pass the host torch to @snappy_d_happy! Soon he will be posting his first flyer to say hello and maybe even announce the date of the next walk! So go check him out But if you haven't finished #viw11 yet, don't stress, feel free to continue adding to the tag for as long as you like

yoncie I'm on a roll! Edit 12 for #viw11 #viw11_yoncie hosted by @gromitmagick 2y

yoncie This is another entry for my #viw11 I think I refered to my last post as number 13. I lied. Apparently this is only number 11! Sorry to @gromitmagick, our lovely host, for being so late! Late Victorian Era 1865-1910 Following the Civil War the textile industry flourished in Rhode Island. Warren, once glorious in’ her ship-building and whaling days, gradually became a mill town. This is part of the Warren Manufacturing Company which made "Warren goods" like sheetings, shirtings, and jaconets and were known throughout the country for good quality. 2y

gromitmagick One more reminder before I announce the next host, esp to @misschew @jestus and @jjwflsun, I know you've got a few last pics up your sleeve!! We're at 997 pics in the #viw11 tag (998 now) and it would be so awesome to jump over that mark before I pass the torch. You are also welcome to post other pics you took that day but didn't make the final cut. Check and see if there are any hiding in your camera roll.
And don't forget to follow @virtualinstawalk for up to date details on future walks

yoncie Holey Moley! Has this been one arduous task for me. This is an edit for the long since past #viw11 hosted by @gromitmagick I'd like to point out that gromitmagick has posted untold #'s of pics since the walk, and has probably forgotten all about it, lol! I have been so seriously blocked!!! 2y

bleuebelle A bonus shot for #viw11 ... My little trooper trying to find somewhere to dump all that crap so he could hit the waves.. I went straight to PhotoToaster with this, used the happy filter, then added flash, I was really liking how it gave the J-man an aura of white light, so I chucked it into squaready to get the shape, then thought I might just see what a little snapseed drama might do for my sky... I love it. No IG filter as its had enough already, lol.. to @gromitmagick hurrah for nearly 1000 pics.. How cool 2y

gromitmagick And here is my finished grid for #viw11!! Don't forget to tag all your grids with #viw11_grids. You can see all of my pics at #viw11_gromitmagick 2y
