Ok. It’s time for the second Bangalore Photo Walk. As I had mentioned earlier, it’ll happen on June 1. We will start off close to where we started off last time. However, we’ll proceed in a totally different direction.
Here is the route that we are going to take:

We begin in front of the Ravindra Kalakshetra on J C Road at 7:30 am. The reason for the early start is that this particular route has a lot more photograph-able stuff compared to last month, and so I expect us to be walking slower. Also, the route is slightly longer than the one that we took last month.
Starting from Ravindra Kalakshetra, we walk down J C Road till we reach the Corporation circle. Having gone round and round in circles in that area (I personally find it quite photogenic; I hope you people think the same), we proceed along Nrupathunga road. We’ll be movingagainst the direction of the one way but it’s ok since we will be walking.
At K R Circle, we will be doing a LT 30 (approximately) and walking up Seshadri Road. We will be passing by a large number of old educational institutions here. The walk will officially end in front of the erstwhile Central Jail. After that, those of us that are hungry and willing will cut into Gandhinagar and have breakfast at Kamat Yatri Nivas (considering that we’ll be tired and hungry, I think we should target the buffet breakfast).
This is a slightly longish walk so please make sure you land up on time. Please tell your friends also. Maybe you could give footage for the walk on your blog/website. I hope for a better turnout than we got last time (11 to be precise). The first walk has had some good press, both in The Bengaluru Pages and in Citizen Matters. The Bengaluru Pages article is not online. However Priya has been kind enough (I love that phrase, don’t I?) to snail mail over a few copies of the magazine. I’ll distribute them to the walkers on the next walk.
I’ve also started a Bangalore Photo Walk yahoo group, which will allow us to be in touch through email. It’s called blorephotowalk. I request you to join it.
