I miss the many abandoned buildings of my hometown of Cleveland and would love to explore that kind of thing in the Bay area!

Are you willing to be part of a group where we watch out for each other? Some people are tempted to go off on their own during a meetup. This is not acceptable because in the past we've wasted time searching for people. Photo of yourself required.


Can you remain calm in a dark abandoned building? Are you fit enough to run with the group and walk along uneven surfaces if the terrain requires it? If not, you shouldn't join this group.


Are you willing to sign a liability release waiver? Not that we do risky meetups but because the areas require alertness and caution. Yes or No.


We basically field shoot and share photos. To join you must upload 2-5 of your recent photos to current Members' Photo Album. A visual introduction. You have 8 days to do it or your membership is cancelled. See Discussions tab in menu for directions.


A meetup consist of a field shoot and Show & Tell where we relax at an eatery to show a few of our recent photos. It is a chance to learn from each others efforts - hits and near misses - and get in the practice of talking "photography". Comment?

Nice idea.

    Hi Colette,
    We met at the networking group on Wednesday, and I'd like to invite you to join my Linked In network but I'm not sure what your email address is. Care to share?
