Walk with Teri Whittaker:
The award-winning Botanical Gardens is a wonderful place to visit to enjoy the natural beauty and tranquil surrounds of nature with its variety of plants and extraordinary scents! The gardens’ colors and ambiance change with every season so there is always something new to see and enjoy. Of course, the gardens are a wonderful place for photography. Never overwhelming, always inspiring, you never know what you’ll discover when you visit the Botanical Gardens!

Walk with Alison Carlino:
Let the nighttime city lights burn into your portrait work for something different! Join Alison as she balances city scenes with off camera flash and learn poses that match the mood. On this PhotoWalk, Alison will demo how she light paints an object. You will need a tripod to photograph alongside her on the light painting lesson.

About Grapevine:  Founded in 1844, Grapevine is the oldest community in Tarrant County. In 1888, when the Cotton Belt Railroad came to Grapevine, businesses flourished and the wooden buildings on Main Street were replaced with new structures constructed of locally-made brick. At least 80 percent of the commercial buildings you see date from that period. In 1907, Grapevine was incorporated as a city and many important services were initiated for the community of 500 people. Today, Grapevine is an amazing city of nearly 50,000 people.
