Photo Walkabout / Winters

So it looks like we will be on the road to Winters! Click on Winters for some information on a walking tour, it could be fun to document the architectural history. We'll meet in the park directly across from the Buckhorn Steakhouse at 10 AM. Also, if you are interested in trying your hand at outdoor portraiture, the park is a good place to practice, although we will have to use each other as models. I will bring along a reflector for you to try out. There should be plenty of parking. We should be able to find a place for lunch, and then for those who are interested, head up to Solano Lake and the Putah Creek area afterwards. The weather looks really good for Wednesday! Post carpool info on the event page. I have room for 3 die hard photographers in my car:) Please shoot me an email if you have any questions!

This will be the LAST Photo Walkabout for 2012! So for those of you who have a weekday to goof off, here's a little incentive to get out there and practice your photographic skills. Join me every four weeks or so on a Photo Walkabout, and we'll visit a different location every month. Here's how it works... when you RSVP (and you must RSVP to vote and get the updates), you will submit an idea on where you might like to go and shoot for that month. Everyone will have a chance to vote on the submitted ideas via email. Then, after the voting closes, the TIME and LOCATION will be posted. It will be posted a few days before the meetup so that you all will know ahead of time where we will be going. Plan to have lunch with us and talk shop. The weather or the season could even dictate what we want to shoot. Either way, the plan shouldn't take us farther than an hour or so away in any given direction. Remember, this will repeat about every four weeks, so if you can't make it to one, do the next one! Remember, time and location to be determined! (10:00 a.m. is just a default setting) Sound interesting? Come along and find out!

    I love Winters! You can find some of my photos and paintings at Root Stock on Main. My artist name is Victory, dorky I know, but Vicky Johnson is just too forgettable.

    Nice little town and a few photo ops, but we've done better. Didn't stay for the 2nd half, which might have been better.

    yeah, me Jacalyn.

    November 12, 2012

    • Jacalyn E.

      Tom, I forgot I have to film a grand opening tomorrow evening (dud), so I would need to be back in Vallejo about 3:30-4:00 pm at the latest. Is that too early a return for you? It is critical for me to be back on time. What do you think? I don't want to put a damper on your day.

      November 13, 2012

    • Jacalyn E.

      Hi Tom, give me a call, I left my number on your voice message.

  • Charlie

    Anyone care to carpool from the Roseville-Sacramento area?

    November 13, 2012

    • Charlie

      Sorry Jane, unfortunately I have to cancel out of this event. Enjoy the shoot.

      November 13, 2012

  • Jacalyn E.

    Hi Cathy, a couple of us may leave from Vallejo. Not sure if I can hang that late with us getting started so early. I know Tom wants to ride share, so we will likely meet at my house and head up from Vallejo.

    November 12, 2012

  • Jacalyn E.

    Any of the Vallejo folks planning to attend? I would welcome carpooling again.

    November 12, 2012

    My vote is for Winters.

    • Jan L.

      Hi Bob, Healdsburg wasn't on our list of locations, but if you plan on attending, go ahead and RSVP and then you can vote on one of three choices: Ironstone Winery, Oakland Zoo, or Winters. You can always change your RSVP after we vote if you cannot attend. If you always RSVP yes, then you'll get all the updates via email for the event.

    I've not been to the Oakland Zoo lately but understand from fotog friends that there's not much of interest there. Am holding out for the refurbished SF Zoo.

    I would also like to go to the Oakland Zoo.

    November 9, 2012

  • Jacalyn E.

    I like the idea of the zoo as well, particularly since the Photo Walk was a downtown area. It would be nice to shoot something else this time around.
