The Batavia Photography Club is inviting you to its Photo Walk on Saturday, Oct. 7, which is free. It starts in Batavia at GO ART! at Seymour Place (201 E. Main St.) downtown. Time is 10 a.m. to noon. The length of this walk is about 2.5 miles.

Participants are going to have photo opportunities of all kinds -- nature, urban and industrial.

This is part of Worldwide Photo Walk Day, now a 10-year tradition. The first photo walks were in London, New York, Miami and Sydney. Now the walk has grown to over a thousand cities, including Batavia.

Many local photographers know Batavia has a very wide variety of architecture and locations to use as backdrops or be the feature of a photograph.

Downtown's GO ART! building is a historical structure now filled with art exhibits. As the walk begins, photographers will go past some old impressive structures to the Harvester Center. The Harvester Center was a million-square-foot factory for tractor manufacturer Massey Ferguson at the turn of the 20th century. Part of the facility is still in use and part is in a bit of decay.

Then the walk proceeds to DeWitt Recreation Area for wildlife and landscape photos of this area and pond. A different route will be taken back through the historic Batavia Cemetery. Created in 1823, and on the National Register of Historic Places, it is the final resting place of some of the city founders, Civil War veterans, a general and the only Confederate officer buried north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

The group will walk back to GO ART! and those who are interested can meet for lunch afterward around the corner at O’Lacy’s Irish Pub on School Street.

Don’t be afraid to show some photographs 'cause you never know, you might have some good ones, said Batavia Photography Club President Scott Neumann on the opening gala night for its month-long exhibit at the Richmond Memorial Library.

The club holds this annual event so local photographers can showcase various prints of people, landscapes, animals and more, for the public to view and enjoy.

This year, three studio nights were offered instead of two, Neumann said. Some club members show off their expertise by teaching things like fantastic photography, neutral density filters along with guests from various clubs in the vicinity, too.

The Batavia club meets the first and third Monday of each month -- September through May -- starting at 7 p.m. at the Northgate Free Methodist Church, located at 8160 Bank Street Road in Batavia. Come as a guest and to learn more go to http://batavia.photoclubservices.com/

Rochester has had the nickname of “Image Capital of the World” due to its famous industries. It is also well known as a center for visual arts, particularly photography. The premier photography-only gallery in Rochester is Image City on 722 University Ave. Every month they rotate their exhibits featuring the best photographic art the city has to offer.

This month Batavia is more than well represented. Works from seven local photographers belonging to the Batavia Photography Club are hung on the walls. They are in a special exhibit in the East Gallery that will remain open until Sept. 6th. The first Friday art walk exhibit opening party is this week, Aug. 14th, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. All of the local photographers are expected to be in attendance; come on out and show them your support. Admission to the gallery is always free.
