City Photowalk?

  • Nov 29, 2014 · 3:30 PM
  • Ferry Building

Update as of 2pm Saturday Nov 29th-
It has been raining on and off all day but it is not raining right now. If any of you are still up for it and don't mind the possibility of getting wet, then the walk is back on. Thanks for your patience with the unpredictable weather.

--------------------------------------------------------

Saturday Nov 29th 8am:
This walk is cancelled due to the rain.

--------------------------------------------------------

Anyone up for a walk through the city on a Saturday afternoon? It gets dark around 5:30 now so we can try and catch the sun setting by the Bay Bridge.

We will meet at 3:30 pm in front of the Gandhi Statue behind the Ferry Building. If you click on the map, it should show exactly where it is. We will promptly start walking at 3:40. If you run late see our path below and you can catch up to us.

It will probably be for about an hour, depending on how fast/slow the group moves. We will walk towards the Bay Bridge, walk back and get some sunset shots, go to Justin Herman Plaza and photograph the ice-skaters, then walk to Pier 5 and get shots of the city from the pier. A tripod might be a good idea.

Lastly, if you previously responded "yes" but can no longer come, please change your rsvp so that the count is accurate.

    Never knew there was a Gandhi Statue at the Ferry Building.

    Is there a host for this tour? I don't see one listed on the event page.

    November 24, 2014

    • C.Y.

      Right, and where specifically at the Ferry Building? The Ferry Building is a large area and often quite crowded. Will someone have a Meetup sign?

      November 24, 2014

      The post says in front of the Gandhi Statue behind the Ferry Building at 3:30 pm.

    When you hit "Directions" it shows a map of Oakland. What's up with that? Or am I not understanding something.

    Hi, if you were planning on going to the City Photowalk this Saturday the date was changed to the following Saturday the 29th (after Thanksgiving) since it looks like it's going to be a rainy day this Saturday.

      Hi - Meeting in front of the Ferry Building at 3:30. It will probably be for about an hour or so, depending on how fast/slow the group moves. I'm thinking we can walk towards the Bay Bridge, walk back and get some sunset shots, go to Justin Herman (catch the ice-skaters), Pier 5. A tripod might be a good idea.

    FYI: I did cruise SOMA on my bike and was lucky that it happened to be a beautiful day. I easily got into the City with my bike on a Marin bus rack--really enjoyed the day. If this event was done with a group, I'd suggest a meetup place/time before and after with an opportunity to share photos over food/coffee at a cafe afterwards. People would be free to use the several hour time interval between meetup places/times as they'd like. Could be fun. Let me know if anyone would be interested in trying this again.

      Great idea. Unfortunately I use film cameras and there'll be days before the results become available. Yup, a veritable Neanderthal photog..., Ugh!

    This sounds like a lot of fun. Can't wait to show up.

    Saturday or Sunday mornings work better for me, but thanks for trying to organize something, Artie.

    Anybody up for this on Sunday evening? Let me know; otherwise I'll stay in…

    I'm not an admin, but I would like to go on a photowalk, so here's my recommendation: Mission Bay, Sunday, July 7th, after the Giants Game wraps up. (Game starts at 1PM Sunday). Meet at Caltrain, walk east to the dogpark, cross Mission Creek and come West past the houseboats, walk along the promenade past AT&T park to the boats.

    Scenery: creek, kayaks, houseboats, highway underpass, dog park, public amphitheater, two drawbridges, SF bay, major league stadium, sailboats.

    Distance: 1 mile. No hills.

    Afterwards: We can meet in my apartment's lobby to review pics, or any of the bars along King Street should be clear of baseball traffic by then.

    If that looks good to people, would an admin please make it an event? Or post your own ideas. Summer's here. Let's go for a walk!

    I wouldn't mind going on a random photowalk, might be awesome.

      Ah, I see, though that was kind of a split from the original idea of of this being a photowalk through downtown.

    Weather permitting, I'll probably be going tomorrow night, Friday the 2nd.

    Hi Maria et al, How about including financial District's rooftop gardens too?

    October 11, 2012

  • scott c.

    Sounds interesting. I'm all for evening/night Financial District. There are so many wonderful areas in our city to choose from; I must admit I sometimes forget just how lucky I am to live in a city with so many photo opportunities. It's like the old saying: not seeing the forest for the trees. I'm there depending on date, times, & if in area accessible by MUNI. Looking forward to future events.

    Sunday or Monday are the best days for me!

    Just did this last Friday night, at the height of tourists in town for Fleet Week and America's Cup. Lots of fun being out and about at night, seeing everything in a different light.

    October 10, 2012

  • Maria C.

    Sounds interesting. I've been wanting to do a nighttime stroll around the financial district. Many of the big office buildings have interesting sculptures or are themselves nicely lit at night.

    October 10, 2012

    • Maria C.

      Oh, and I think you can just declare a date and location (starting point) and go from there.

    Definite maybe... depends on when

    Daytime works for me, too. Tuesdays or Thursdays would be great. I am not familiar with the Dog Patch, what's there to photograph?

    What days? I'm unemployed right now, was thinking the industrial dog patch could use a bike and photo tour. I'm happy to host.
