I had such a great time at the last photowalk in La Jolla that some of us decided we should put on another one in Orange County (which is kind of a midway point between Los Angeles and San Diego). Hopefully we can get a decent turnout again, so if you're in the Southern California area, here are the details:
WHERE: Laguna Beach, California
WHEN: March 30th, 2PM
I set it up for after lunch so we don't have to try finding food for under $20 per person. But if you're into food, you might want to show up early and hit one of the many restaurants down near the water.
Because photowalks are where it's at! If you've never been to one, you don't know what you're missing. I always meet a ton of great people and I walk away with lots of interesting photos. It's part social event, part photo shoot. Here's my write-up for the Upcoming.org event:
Join us in Orange County's Laguna Beach for an afternoon of photowalking. We'll begin our walk at the Festival of Arts building on Broadway, walk all the way down Broadway until we hit the Pacific Coast Highway, then we'll turn our attention to some of the more active streets in Laguna Beach — Ocean Avenue and Forest Avenue. When we're done with the busy street scene, we'll head down to the beach and walk along the boardwalk. For those who want to do a little more beach photography, we'll then head over to the rocky shoreline to see what we can find.
There's a large parking lot available across the street from our meeting place, and parking will cost $3 for the day. Bring a few extra dollars in case you need to park in a different lot, prices will vary between $3 and $10.
Laguna Beach is fairly simple to reach from the major freeways. Just hop on the Laguna Freeway 133 (also known as Laguna Canyon Road) from the 73, I-405, or I-5. The canyon road will take you all the way down to our meeting spot and into Laguna Beach. Or for those coming from a nearby beach town, you can take the Pacific Coast Highway into Laguna Beach.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us that day… but hey, it's Southern California. There's a 99% chance it'll be sunny and warm. And if all of this isn't enough to persuade you to come hang out for the afternoon, it's my birthday (on the 31st) so you owe it to me!
