Flickr global photowalk: Street art edition

If anyone is interested in doing a photowalk on street art, Flickr is hosting a worldwide photowalk event on August 3rd. Let's go out and shoot around the Mission District's famous street art! We had fun the last time around and I know there are members out there who would love to check out the colorful alleys!

Exercise your street photography skills. Capture textures, details and develop your "eye". While shooting solo has it's rewards, a small group walking close together provides safety in numbers, particularly in some parts of the urban landscape. 

We will meet at a predetermined location that I will send to those on the final RSVP list. I will be at the location before 7:30 AM. We will do a quick meet and greet, go over some basics then start our hike. Be ready for an easy walk of about 2 miles on flat grade. This will be done during the early morning to make the most of the light, avoid the heat and we will be winding our way along some alleyways to capture street art. At the end of the walk, we can stop for coffee and pastries.

Things to bring(recommended):

Camera, one lens (fixed or zoom)

Memory cards

extra battery

Pack light and bring some water for hydration

Walking shoes and comfortable clothing

No tripods are needed so you can leave them home.

I will be sending out an email to those attending a few days before the actual event with the final location.

When the link opens up tomorrow, feel free to post your best here or on the Flickr Global photowalks site! Use the hashtag #FlickrPhotoWalk in your Flickr page to get it automatically uploaded.

    FYI for everyone...if you were planning to take BART..first train from east bay arrives 8:35 and peninsula a about 8...I thought that would be a good solution...anyone know about parking there?

    August 2

    • Eric

      there is plenty of street parking at that hour, part of the pluses of coming early. Just be careful of where you park and mind the signs!

    Hi Eric. I'm going to do my very best to make this, but I've been struggling with a bad back for the past few weeks. If you end up with a waiting lust, let me know and I'll give up my spot.

    Hi Eric, unfortunately I can't make it early that day, but might try to go check it out later in the afternoon. I have no idea where to find the street art. Can you give some pointers of some good places to go check it out?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
