Street Photography - Led by Juan Roberts

We will be leaving the AV on an early MetroLink at from either Lancaster (6:30am) or Palmdale Stations (6:39am).

- Arrive at Union Station and base camp there (8:30+)
- Meet and make a decision on one of FOUR routes (9:15)

1 DTLA -- China Town, Olvera Street, Fashion District, Broadway, Grand Central Market.

2 Mid City -- Mid Wilshire, LACMA, Hollywood&Highland, Hollywood Blvd, NoHo.

3 LBC -- Downtown Long Beach, Marina, Queen Mary, the beach.

4 Beaches -- Venice + Abbott Kenny, Santa Monica + Pier + Promenade.

These are some of the general locations that I haunt when I go out. I will share the general dynamics of street photography per my experience -- subjects, food, bathrooms, safety, etc.

I am not a technical Tog so most of what I will share is about perception, awareness and being fearless about getting the shot.

I think that when we break bread together, Q&A will happen naturally. It should be fun and hopefully open some minds about street photography.

Train return times are: 2:25, 4:05, 5:40, 8:55pm

    It was a beautiful day, Juan knows to me everything about the city. He showed us lots of great architecture, murals, people and so much more. It makes me want to study more about the city.

    Cool, wish I could go, but want to give this weekend for my leg to heal up..sounds like it'll be awesome. Hope you do it again when I'm in better physical condition.

      what did you do to your leg?

      April 5, 2013

    • Phil

      not sure.... I didn't do anything specific that I recall to it, but my right hip and shin have been in massive pain for the past month or so if I put any weight on them.. My leg also just generally felt swollen and infected, and I could barely move or stand on it at all at one point. The condition whatever it is seems to be improving.. I can move my leg now and not in constant pain, so I hope if I stay off it for a while it'll fully heal.

    Is anyone else from Lancaster or Palmdale going? I would like to 'meetup' with someone up here at one of the stations. Or, where do we meet up at Union Station? I've never taken the Metrolink before.

      I plan to go using Metro from Lancaster. I recommend getting their a half an hour ahead (6:00am) to purchase tickets. The ticket machine is slow and most riders are confused on how to use it. Look for my mug. lol.

      Thanks for the tip! I will try to get there early.
