    Hello Chris and everyone! I showed up a little later. I didn't say I was showing up because I couldn't make the noon meetup time, but managed to get there around 3pm and meet James and Chris and a couple of others. That was a lot of fun!!

    I've posted eleven photos. Hopefully you like 'em! Thank you very much again. I would love to have met more of the people at the meetup, but hopefully next time. Thanks again!!!!

    It was great meeting the people who came out today. Learned a lot...and now I'm pretty exhausted. Main lesson: photography takes some balls.

  • Chris F.

    I just looked at the Goldline route,, I will probably pick it up at Sierra Madre Villa around 11:10. If Maya is still going I can pick her up on the way.

    It's on Holly St. and Arroyo. near City Hall.

    Hi Robert,, where is Memorial Park?

    March 5, 2011

  • Robert J.

    Chris, Daniel and I are also taking the Gold Line from Pasadena. We'll be leaving about 11:15 out of the Memorial Park Station.

    March 5, 2011

    I cannot make it precisely at noon. I will be there shooting but only for a few hours. I'll be wearing a colorful scarf.

    March 5, 2011

  • Chris F.

    I will be going that way but might take the goldline out of South Pasadena to avoid the parking in L.A...

    Chris, also, thanks for filtering out the serial killers. Regular one time killers are all right, but the serial variety I like to keep away from lol

    Scott, the only South Bay I know of is in Northern California! Is there another? And are you sure it won't be inconvenient? I do very much appreciate your offer. If it is out of the way, I can always hop on the 733 and walk a bit. :D

    Chris, I thank you very much for your persistence. :)

    I could drop you in Culver on the way back. I'll be headed towards the South Bay so It's not really out of my way.

  • larry a.

    Jessie I don't live near the area...so i'll wait and see if you get a ride! If not let me know if anyone else needs a ride let me know and we will try and arrange it. Email me here and I will defenitely get back

    February 28, 2011

  • Chris F.

    Because parking is always a problem. It might be a good idea for members who live near each other to get to know each other and set up car pools, alternate cAr pools and split the costs .. Just a thought

    Anyone from the venice area want to carpool? I'll pay for any parking fees we incur!

    February 28, 2011

  • Chris F.

    We could meet in the Church Courtyard across the street from the Plaza

    February 27, 2011

  • Chris F.

    We are going to need some ideas on where to meet up .

    February 27, 2011

    Parking really sucks, its best to Redline it in or park a few blocks away and walk to it.. or use the meters
