    Wow, so sorry I missed this. Is it going to be repeated soon? Sounds like it was a great outing. Sorry the photos are off line. Wanted to see them.

      The "Weary Traveler" is stunning, so much to think about.

    Excellent - a pleasant low-cost trip, including RT to LA, the LA subway and bus. Thanks R Lin for organizing this wonderful trip.

      Good to hear you caught up with everyone Jim. I was busy at the garage sales all morning :)

    A little change of plans. The DRKRM Gallery manager just let me know that this Sat. they open @12:30. My idea now is to first take The Red line from Union Station (all surface transportation included in $10 fare!) to The Museum Of Contemporary Art (opens at 11:00 and eat at their great
    café, "Lemonade". wonderful, reasonably priced, healthy food. We can then head over to The DRKRM gallery by 12:30. I don't know how that fits into your plan. All of this is in the same general area.
    This whole day should be a lot of fun and an adventure.

      Just as a heads-up reminder, the San Diego Photography Collective is also participating in this event: http://www.meetup.com...­ , so there will be more riders joining everyone.

      Sounds like it'll be a hoot, and we'll learn a bunch from each other.

    I decided to stay home with my wife this weekend. I have been to Phillipe's years ago, derelicts to diamonds, everyone goes there.

    Great. By the way, Phillipe's , restaurant is a classic, within walking distance from the train station and Olvera Street (been in the same location for over 60 years. Maybe we could meet there too.

      I'll encourage my gang to go to the DRKRM Gallery first (to get street picture ideas) and then to Olvera Street to do some shooting. Since we'll be on the same train, call me on my cell[masked] to say where you are on the train and we'll talk then.

    Before I noticed this event, I agreed to lead a photo shoot to Olvera Street this Saturday, taking the same train but boarding in San Juan Capistrano. Perhaps we can combine our gangs in some way?

    No fee at the gallery. P.S. If you haven't been to L.A. in a while you will be pleasantly surprised. Great energy. .... Lots to images waiting to be taken. So, yes, I'll probably take a few.

    July 25, 2013

  • Greg S.

    Sounds fun. How much is the exhibit fee?

    July 25, 2013

  • Jim

    75% likely I'll be able to make it!

    July 25, 2013

  • Brett B

    Are you planning to do any street photography yourself?
