(Victor Valley)– Scott Kelby, famous photographer and Photoshop professional, announces his 6th Annual Photowalk.  This is the largest photo event in the world. A photowalk is when photographers, of all skill levels and equipment, get together to take pictures of a location. On October 5 photographers from around the world will gather to take pictures, socialize and join a family of 1000+ walkers at over 750 locations.  Calico will join in the world wide facilities.

The Calico walk leader will be local historian and photographer Steve Smith. According to Smith “On this photowalk we will be exploring Calico Ghost Town. Calico is a remnant of the largest silver mining area in California. During our walk we will have a chance to take shots of historic buildings, interesting people, some geology and possibly a bit of wildlife. We will have two (or more if everyone wants) hours to visit the town. Admission to Calico is $8 for adults and kids (6-15) $5. for directions to Calico go here After Calico we will go to nearby Peggy Sue’s diner for lunch and look at our photos, feed ducks and take pictures of “Diner-Saurs”.

If we are ready, or willing, for more fun after that I will be up to lead a tour of Route 66 from Barstow to Victorville where we can take shots of the historic road, cows, and world famous Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch. If you are coming into Calico from over the hill from the 15 freeway you will be able to get on the 15 in Victorville and head home without backtracking.”
