On 26th September 2015 the 500px Global Photo Walk was organized in Chandigarh for the first time by NOTYi Photographers. The location of the walk was Sukhna Lake, Chandigarh. The walk was to start at 5:00 AM so I readied myself and reached the venue at around 4:50 AM. There were around 20 participants who had already reached the venue by this time including the organizers.
We registered ourselves and waited for the event to start. The walk started at around 6:00 AM. By this time the number of participants had already reached 100+. The organizers had arranged for different themes for photography. As the number of participants were large so we were divided into smaller groups of 7-10 participants and sent for photographing different themes.
As part of the walk I clicked around 200 photographs. Following are some of the best photographs of the walk covering the different themes.

Finally the NOTYi team that made the event possible……
And to end it all the final “Group Selfie”
The NOTYi team was aiming for breaking the world record for most people participating in a photo walk in a single day and they did manage to break it with 448 participants, 42 more than the previous record.
Overall the event was a good experience as it was my first ever Photo Walk with a large group.
The 500px Global Photo Walk in Chandigarh was covered by all the major newspapers in town.
