World wide insta meet, yes this was the insta meet I volunteered to organise on 9th Sep at BVK Iyenger road.
The day before the walk, there was heavy rain in bangalore, and it looked like there would be heavy rain during walk time as well but luckily there was no rain on 9th Sep.
The stipulated Meet up time was 8:00 AM and after a brief round of introductions, we started by 08:45 AM.
Since BVK Iyenger road and Avenue road is a large area, so we had not planned any route. We had decied to meet at Maysore Bank by 10:00 AM.
At the meet, there were around 40+ attendees and it surely felt good to see a lot of photo enthusiasts together.
Few people even shared their experience with me :
Judhjit Ganguli (Insta Id: @Judhjit) remarked: It was an amazing experience meeting so many Instagrammers at one place. So many perspectives, so many people. Plus, very well organized. Clicked some pretty good photos. KR Market is always lovely!

Apoorva Prasad (Insta Id: @apoorva_prasad) remarked: The meet was really good, got to know a lot of people. And the fear of doing street photography which I had is gone. The total experience was really great.
