City Walk- Salt Lake City

Filed Under Photography | 38 comments


New city Bldg RS

Have you ever taken a City walk? I know I hadn’t really walked my city.  I thought pretty much that buildings were just buildings, until this past Saturday when I had the opportunity,  along with about 50 other fellow Salt Lake City photographers and my dear dear friend Ms Joanie, to walk  the streets  and get up close and personal, together.

Saturday July 18th was the world wide City Walk; where over 900 cities participated just as we did. I really enjoyed our outing.  It was close to 100 degrees out and I am very much a pantie-waste when it comes to the heat. But I bucked it up and  thought I caught a couple of  interesting shots.

Time and lace RS

Look at the details… I loved this clock. (which reminds me I have a great clock post coming up– so stay tuned.)

Buffalo Detail RS

Check out the Buffalo and the Dental molding and fruit basket. I picture the artisan who crafted this and the pride they must have had. 

Details RS

Face and Lace

Chef RS

Then we came upon a simple carnival set up for the Big Brothers and Sisters. Isn’t this cute Chef charming? I wonder if he helps Santa in the Winter?

downTown clown RS

Typically I am not a huge Clown fan– ok call me a big ol chicken — but this fellow was a bit on the shy side and I thought he was beautiful.

Flower vender RS

Around the corner from all this was a fantastic Farmers Market (more on that to come) where I found this Flower Vender.

The roads we choose to take in our life are very Serendipitous! Oh what a happy accident I found! I am so enjoying my Dipity Road. Do you have any City walk experiences you can share? I would love to hear about them.

Meanwhile, thanks as usual to Susan at Southern Daydreamer where she is hosting our Wednesday Outdoor celebration.  Also, what others are “hooked” on … at Hooked on Fridays with Julia and of course the ever INSPIRING Melissa at The Inspired Room. Check out some of the other fantastic spots around our Blog-osphere!

    Wow! These are truly some amazing shots. Great details in the architecture and beautiful colors. Santa is cute, but my husband would be afraid of the clown. LOL. He says they are all malevolent. 😉 It stems from a childhood episode where a clown scared him nearly to death at a birthday party. On the flip side, I think they’re great fun. Loved this tour.

    Happy OW…


    Sheila 🙂

    Thank you for stooping at my blog, you to keep up the good work.
    I did a city walk when I was younger and had a man with us that told us stories about the things we saw, I liked it.
    If you come to Sweden one day we do a walk together.
    Nice photo of both buildings and people.

    Hi Claudia! Lovely post. I was so tickled to read about Salt Lake City. I am going to be coming to Salt Lake in October. There is a conference at the Univeristy of Utah Campus, so I have been wondering what I might see. I did not even realize that you lived there. I don’t pay a lot of attention to where someone lives, just the post. I will be seeing hopefully some of the beautiful things that you see every day. Maybe the Aspens will be changing at that time. Stop by and say hi. I didn’t post an Outdoor Wednesday today, I posted a thank you for Amy’s prayers for yesterday. Please stop by and check it out. I really was pleased when I finished. Debbie has not read it yet. I will get a phone call when she does. Take care my friend. Country Hugs, Sherry

  18. Mary says:

    What beautiful photos! You have a lovely blog. I plan to visit often.

  19. Sandi says:

    What a treat to find your post. Thanks so much for visiting me. You are the first, and so far only, to know the Carpenter song featured in my heading. I have always loved that song, and someday want it played at my memorial. My kids think I’m crazy…Hmm….you never know…hee hee!

  20. Kim says:

    I love your photos.  You take amazing shots.  I love the details on old buildings.  And your colors are amazing too.

  21. Yyam says:

    I really love your shots Claudia! They’re really well composed, especially the architecture shots..And I’m inspired to take some pictures outdoors today!
    I’m not a fan of clowns…I find them

  22. Beautiful city! Thanks for the pics.

    What incredible photographs. I am in awe! Just beautiful. Amy

  30. Pam says:

    We have taken city walks in several different cities with our kids. Of course, the kids are usually complaining about the heat, the cold, the something, so we can stop. lol
    Great photos!

  31. Lisa says:

    Hey! This is where I live, too, but in the southeast end of the valley! I LOVE the SL County Building and what great angles you used in your photos! The colors are so vivid. Did you go by the Zions Bank on Main(?) that has the clock in the front? I adore that building. Thanks for a nice visit!

  32. It’s nice sometimes to be a tourist in your own city! What great pics! Looks like you had fun despite the heat!

  33. Terry says:

    Thanks for these. We did some city walking during several visits to Salt Lake a few years ago. I’m still in geography shock. I’ve never gotton over it. Everywhere I look at a big or small scale takes my breath away. You can see so far. On Antelope Island you feel as remote as the moon.

  34. Claudia, you are an amazing photographer!  What some wonderful shots of SLC.  I especially love the one of the city and county building ( I think . . . the one with the clock)

    I am excited to see your clock post!

  35. That is pretty intriguing. It provided me some ideas and I’ll be placing them on my website eventually. I’m bookmarking your site and I’ll be back. Thank you again!
