Drink And Click™ SF536Wow, you know you are having an awesome month of special guests when you need not one, but TWO Drink and Clicks to fit them all in! I have just received word that +Elia Locardi and his wife  +Naomi Locardi  from http://www.blamethemonkey.com/, AND +Brian Matiash  will BOTH be in town this week! Now this is a trifecta of awesomeness! So to celebrate, we will be taking them out in one of the most fun and diverse sections of San Francisco...North Beach! Chinatown, Portsmouth Square Plaza, Washington Square, St. Peter's and Pauls Church....the shooting possibilities are endless. It also doesn't hurt that this neighborhood has plenty of great bars and cafes to socialize in. I will work on a updated itinerary this weekend. But this much I know. We are meeting at Vesuvio Cafe at  255 Columbus at 5:00PM. PLEASE BRING CASH IF YOU ARE GOING TO ORDER A DRINK! We will be there until a little after 6:15, when we will take off and walk the streets to get the great light. Afterwards, who knows...more drinking and of course more clicking!  So come on SF Bay Area Photogs. Let's welcome +Brian Matiash +Elia Locardi and +Naomi Locardi to SF! (BTW, this is the FIRST time the Locardis have been to SF, so let's get a great big turnout and show them how we do it.) Thanks +Chris Chabot for the awesome cover photo!  Event Organized By +Robyn Chau +Tony Eckersley and +Michael Bonocore  #DrinkAndClickSF   #Photography  Drink And Click SF - Blame The Monkey And #BMash Edition2013-03-27 17:00:0068

It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too.

Drink And Click™ SF536This Friday we're bar crawling it up in North Beach!  AND we have two bar sponsors!  Whaaaat?! 1st, we'll meet up at 6:00p at *Tope* (1326 Grant Ave) to get a nice, inspirational buzz going.  Our discount pimps $3 draft beers and well drinks for D&C'ers. From there we'll head south on Columbus to our 2nd stop, an unusual and interesting bar called *Specs* (12 Saroyan Place) for additional liquid encouragement and to toast any late arrivals.  Finally, we'll crawl back up Columbus to *The Boardroom* (1609 Powell St) for more libations to truly drive home the point of it being a Friday evening.  Also, the owner (same guy who owns Tope) is giving us *$3 drafts and well drinks, $5 nachos, and 1/2 priced burgers (comes with sides), corn dogs and wings!!*  I've heard the food here are amazing, so bring your appetite! **An additional note** about The Boardroom: they are big into sports photography, and are hosting a rotating photo gallery where customers can and do buy the prints they display.  The owner is looking to chat to any of us who want to display their work there! Remember to RSVP for the 5th Drink and Click chapter-wide challenge, "Straight out of the Camera," here:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/crvlp1fdffsus73ns048as1cbpk  Things have been pretty lively over in North Beach these days, with plenty of great outdoor lighting and so there should be some great opportunities for pics to submit to the D&C January challenge.  Big big thanks to @104850282622192281445 for coordinating our sponsored bars! We'll check in along the way so you will know where the group is if you arrive after 6, so keep an eye on this event page for updates!  You can also text @106719979779567208605, @117741745713138927677, or @101491514263283809757 directly to find out where we are!Drink and Click ™ SF January Event!2013-01-25 18:00:0034  
Eric Raeber1,163,700I got a post from @112417919317910781482 who is in the Bay Area this coming Friday evening and was wondering what we other photographers were up to. Sounds to me like a good excuse for a photowalk, no? On that, @108104041823912324329  proposed Alviso, which is a small city at the bottom tip of the bay with a bit of a history, as well as some old buildings to prove it. Here is the map: http://goo.gl/maps/xduKL We will start from the entrance of the Marina Park at 6.30pm. Park on the street, outside the parking lot, as the gate closes at sunset. @108104041823912324329 will tell us how she found out... Alviso also has a train crossing. If the passenger train is on time, we should get trains passing by around: - 6.08pm (northbound) - 6.23pm (southbound) - 7.33pm (northbound) - 8.30pm (southbound) This is a very small town. So even if you come late, you cannot miss us! If you come early, shoot the train! Bring on your flashlight and tripod. We’ll be in for some long exposures and light painting. We’ll have dinner at a restaurant of our choice after the photowalk. It is all within walking distance. Hope to see you there for some fun walk, fun talk, and fun shootsNight photowalk in Alviso, San Jose2013-01-18 18:30:0013

Thomas Hawk7,816,897The one and only @111863388502434056486 Guru @103519655975029093996 is coming to town and we are going to celebrate in style.  Join us on Thursday, October 11th for a special dinner / photowalk.   We are going to start the evening off at 5:30pm at Henry Hunan's on Sansome Street in San Francisco (note there are several Henry Hunan's, this is the one on Sansome in North Beach).  We'll enjoy some of San Francisco's best chinese food and then head up to go shoot the tallest building in SF, the Transamerica Building at sunset/dusk.  We'll shoot the building from the Montgomery Street overlook -- one of the best locations to shoot This iconic William Pereira spire from.   Afterwards we'll float around North Beach shooting more of the historic architecture and night life before ending up the night at Specs' Twelve Adler Museum for a few later evening adult beverages.   Specs' is a throwback to old school San Francisco that the SF Weekly describes as "one of the few bars left where you can ask for a martini and get a cold glass of gin and a little vermouth without having to answer a bunch of damn fool questions." Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00132  
Doug Kaye63,975I'm still trying to catch this elusive gem. Moonrise is 7:52pm. Sunset is 8:18pm. From Hawk Hill the moon will rise behind the GG bridge and downtown San Francisco. We can't predict the fog. It's always a longshot in August. I'll get there about 7:45 after recording @110414918019803275342, so this will be a leaderless event unless someone (@102691005290181713701?) steps up. If it looks bad from Hawk Hill, we usually try Fort Baker (behind the big rock) just too see what we can get. The Park Service will probably close the gate above the roundabout by 8:30, so it's best to park below the roundabout and walk up as far as you need to get the best shot.Full Moon at the Golden Gate Bridge2012-08-02 04:30:0014

Weathering Away 

This #longexposure Image was taken last year near the #saltonsea   #california  and it truly was a unique location as there was only 3 trees for miles, this being one.
They are in a extreme harsh environment completely surrounded by salt but yet they stand stong

Divided Light

I have been up and down the #californiacoast  taking every oppertunity I have to get away from work. This image was taken on  a Sunday where originally I had planned to meet up with +Larry Nienkark +Todd Draper +Swee Oh and +Gazzaroonii T. but they did not answer in time so I made the decision to go south along the coast to #pigeonpointlighthouse   #california   It was not ideal but I did have some color so in my book this was a win, a #longexposure  with 3stop ND.

Unexpected Light Show

Last Thursday Night I debated on going up #north along the #californiacoast again. I had called up a few friends to see if they wanted to join and finally my buddy NIck Steinberg​ decided to join me. Unfortunately we got a late start and unfortunately did not get the line up I had hoped for (Next month) but we truly got a surprise show by #airglow
Which in all my night ventures I had never seen before. So so worth the being #teamnosleep #lifeofaphotographer //

Four in the Morning

After driving all night from Utah and being up for days I had to pull another all Nighter after I saw the webcams as I drove on i5, what is a few more hours. So I called up my best bud +Larry Nienkark  around 2200h and told him we should go hike into the ‪#‎marinheadlands‬ and capture the ‪#‎fog‬ flowing into the ‪#‎bayarea‬ ‪#‎california‬ through the ‪#goldengatebridge This night truly turned out to be one of the best nights with some amazing scenes that unfolded in front us even if I was sort of delirious and a complete Zombie at sunrise at least I could work my camera

16 Hours 

Yes I can be a bit nuts at times, but truly aren't we all we are photographers and will do most anything for that perfect image. If conditions are favorable I can be known to spend Night and Day in and around the #marinheadlands #california taking in all the angles of the #goldengatebridge and #sanfrancisco. This day was no different even though I was not able to score during sunrise I scored in the early early am and through out the entire day with the ever changing weather conditions

7/1/15 was an amazing ‪#‎sunset‬ light show created over ‪#‎sanfrancisco‬ ‪#‎bayarea‬ ‪#‎california‬ thanks to the crazy weather.
This Pano was made combining 2panos with ‪#‎sonyA7II‬ in camera function with 70-200mm Canon f4 no filters used at 1/100th sec.

Light Vortex
This Image was made as Annette Wong and I walked the streets of ‪#‎sanfrancisco‬ between two stores after a meeting, having my ‪#‎sonyA7II‬ with me I could not pass up this opportunity. I opted to walk towards (what I thought was the middle) of the ‪#‎bankofamericabuilding‬ on ‪#‎californiastreet‬ to capture the ‪#‎fog‬ flowing over and around the top of the building. I again got lucky as the sun illuminated mainly the side of the building and barely braking through the fog much like a partial vortex. ‪#‎blackandwhitephotography

Last Minute 

About two weeks ago we had this absolutely fantastic #sunset here in the #bayarea #california. The entire day we had just these phenomenal clouds. I originally had planned to make my images from Berkeley Hills but last minute decided to go near OAK. As sunset approached it looked like it was going to just fizzle so I opted for a close up of  #sanfrancisco , but with in seconds the colors exploded over the entire bay so I had to change to my wide angle. I'm still happy that I had my 70-200mm on my #SonyA7II to get a close up. No filters was used for making this image just some slight editing in in LR.

Bright Like a Diamond 

Walking in down town #sanfrancisco #california this evening I noticed the light bounce of the side of the #bankofamericabuilding with crazy rays pushing into the #fog. This light spectacle happened for no more the 30 sec and was absolutely fantastic. I had just come from a work presentation with my co worker Annette and she graciously held my paperwork and tripod so I could get a this Image. She then later told me, once I started taking pictures a few people took out their phones to capture this. #rightplacerighttime

Diffused Light

This Image was made at the end of May as my new toy the #sonyA7II   had arrived at work. So of course on my first break I could not wait to go test it out. Here is the first and only image taken that day. After walking a few blocks in #sanfrancisco #bayarea #california I had reached my destination and I had certain vision of a #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography what I wanted in mind and the clouds were perfect that day for it. With some luck the sunlight diffused by the low clouds lit up only parts of the side of the #transamericapyramid — at Transamerica Pyramid.

This Image was made a while back right before blue hour,  you think all the time I have spent here I would be running out of compositions in the #marinheadlands  of the #goldengatebridge  but its such huge location the comps are endless and here is one of both #baybridge  's :)

Mmm M-Way

After having driven all night from San Francisco  after sunset I finally reached the #oregoncoast  around 0130h. I had hoped to make #nightphotography  images of the #milkyway  at Secret Beach but unfortunately right as I was setting up the #fog  rolled in. So I got back in my car and drove further north on #hwy101  till I arrived at #meyerscreekbeach  where I found this nice line up.

Blue Waters

This Image was made during my #pnw  trip a few weeks ago along the stunning  #oregoncoast  in #bandon   #oregon  . This was made right at the beginning start of #bluehour  as the storm clouds pulled by giving a #longexposure   #cloud  feast. I was not the only one there the beach was littered with photogs 20+ but we somehow all managed to stay out of each others way.

Before The Sun Gets Up

As you all know I spent a fair amount of time up here in #marinheadlnds   #california  by the #sanfrancisco   #goldengatebridge  and this Image was made on a clear but still fantastic morning after an all nighter once again. I was joined during blue hour by +Sam Post +David Safanda and +Joe Azure and a few more photogs. It just never gets old even if there are no clouds we all walked away with some killer photos we made here that morning.

Framed by Nature

This #longexposure   Image was made during my #PNW   #oregon  trip. As I was hiking up  the Wahkeena trail I noticed the log being framed by the moss covered logs around it while the sun only illuminated the log and water around it but the surrounding area was in the dark shadows of the green thick #columbiagorge   canopy

Hidden Gem 

This is #fairyfalls  in the #columbiagorge  in #oregon #pnw  . This Image truly is how I saw it with the light, it was perfectly illuminating only lighting up the green brush on the side and the water. This is a fairly easy water fall to get to yet the only person I came across was a trail runner. It does take some time to get up to this as it is fairly steep and far up the #wahkeenatrail  . That is if you ever get here as you will have stopped a lot of times before making lots of waterfall and creek #longexposure  images but the slippery hike is so worth it.

Last Light on Mt Hood

This past weekend I traversed 1348miles on a #roadtrip   through #oregon  from the coast to inland and everything I could find and sort of knew off in between. This Image how ever I would have never been able to make if it was not +Larry Nienkark reminding me that  +Chinh Luong lives up here and Chinh telling me about this panoramic highway 35  that goes along the east side of  #mounthood . I first drove to Trillium Lake but it was completely clouded in so I decided to drive back to this location and spend the next hour just watching the light fade with #sunset   on the clouds and mountain ridge.

Dangling over the Ledge
I have been out and about traversing driving 1348miles through #oregon, 31.6 miles hiking on 10h of sleep, ohhh and of course making a few photos :)

So stay tuned, here is me sitting on the top of #smithrock on the misery ridge trail just hanging out and enjoying the view and company of fellow thrill seekers ;)

Into the Distance 

This #longexposure   Image was made during my last trip to #germany   #deutschland  a few weeks ago. #plauamsee  is a pretty sweet location and this morning was extremely calm but the storm that was coming in was way east and so unfortunately had blocked most of the colors during bluehour. There was how ever a beautiful opening right after sunrise when some color started to appeared as well as clouds from behind me being blown over the lake.

McClures Last Light 

This Image is my fifth installment and my last for a while for the
Before Darkness Falls Series this #longexposure   was made on a short getaway to the #pointreyesnationalseashore  along the #californiacoast   #california  just a short 90min drive from the #bayarea  . This was the last light in the sky before the fog and storm clouds completely rolled through making my hike back to the car truly miserable as I got soaked to the bone.

This Image is my 4th installment for my Before Darkness Falls Series This was made on a short visit to the east coast back in 2012.  I was unable to really go out and shoot all the time, but this evening I got in the car and drove a long the #blueridgeparkway  in #virginia  , I actually had a tough time finding a good vantage point,  I came across this nice opening and I was able to see why they call them the #smokeymountains

This image was taken on an outing along the #californiacoast  with +Swee Oh +Sean McLean +Sam Post +Richard Saasta  (and I'm missing some one). We had just about given up hope for a colorful sunset when all of a sudden during mid #bluehour  the sky blew up with crazy pink clouds.

Here is my second image for the Before Darkness Falls Series. This Image was made during my spontaneous   #utah  trip. As the crowds gathered by the top hoping to get some light on the arch from the setting sun I noticed the #moon  rising and opted to slide down the massive bowl and capture this #bluehour  shot instead and I still managed to get some of the fading light on the #delicatearch

Before Darkness Falls 

I have decided to give myself a small project, that also will get me to look through and work on my ever growing back log. 
I will start the Before Darkness Falls Series with of course one of my favorite bridges. Here is  the #goldengatebridge  along the #californiacoast  in the #bayarea   #sanfrancisco   #california   during #bluehour  with a  #longexposure   capture. Stay tuned for more unseen moments of my camera's life thus far.

Leaving The Bay

This Image was taken that one morning I decided to walk down the side of #hawkhill  in the #marinheadlands   #california  when I got the spectacular #goldengatebridge and #sanfrancisco pano. Truly this was the best #sunrise  I had ever seen above the #bayarea  and it is edged in my memory for ever the only thing that was missing was fog. I usually don't like the container ships in my images but this was perfect timing and worked for me.

The House On The Green Hill

During the travels of #switzerland  last year a family friend talked about a beautiful pass called #jaunpass   So when driving along the Jaunpass road it was quite a challenge keeping my eye on the road as the views were absolutely breathtaking. After sitting here in the location (quite normal for #landscapephotography ) for a while finally got an opening in the clouds and the godreyes shined down illuminating the vibrant green hillside below the #gastlosen .

I was down at mono lake with awesome clouds, having hoped for a good #sunset  but the cloud all of a sudden decided  move west so I decided  last minutes to jump back into the car to drive up to #tiogapass  to chase the light. I managed to get the last bit of light in subfreezing temps and hauling wind.

The Hill Where Magic Is Made

This image is of #hawkhill  in the #marinheadlands  in #california . This is the one spot where most tourist and locals including myself make magic from. Locations vary from below the #fog   to the top of the hill if you are adventures enough there is a lot of  locations to capture the #goldengatebridge  and #sanfrancisco  from , but be warned poison oak, unstable rock and cliff sides are just among a few things here and a few people have lost there lives, so don't take warning signs lightly

Locations vary from below the #fog   to the top of the hill if you are adventures enough there is a lot of  locations to capture the #goldengatebridge  and #sanfrancisco  from , but be warned poison oak, unstable rock and cliff sides are just among a few things here and a few people have lost there lives, so don't take warning signs lightly ___

Absence 

I have been neglecting my social media feeds a bit do to work, new ventures and in search for some inspiration.
Even though I love capturing fog it has not been very good lately so you will see a bit of change in my feed. I will still post fog and bridge pics no worry's as I have more then I know what to do with and I will continue to chase if its good.

 This Image was taken a few weeks back on a drive along the coast as the storm clouds decided to break up and let the sun shine through illuminating the beautiful grass hill.

Leading Line 

While on a 48h getaway to #sandiego  one of the stops this time with +Lisa See​​  was the #salkinstitute. This definitely is a very cool location but we got there during lunch so we had peeps to contend with including one very rude guy. Setting up shot with camera on a tripod with ND filters takes time its not an Iphone. But what ever I let him take his shots and run his mouth a bit, I shrugged it off which really seemed to had him ticked off even more.

Sunrise SanFogcisco Style

This Image was made a few weekends ago as the #fog  made a sudden appearance over night, luckily I woke up late and only managed to get to the #berkeleyhills  from where I managed to capture this. 
#sanfrancisco  truly is a city of gold as the first light hit the side and top of the buildings, a truly unforgettable #sunrise   #california

Raw Colors 

She is is the one I spend my time with and  my money on, driving over her more times then I could count but believe it or not I have never completely walked all the way across her.
This will have to happen this year. A great evening and #sunset   spent with her and best bud

Special Messages

A Night I opted for shooting from the most touristic location but with low fog like this it was the perfect spot to shoot from to capture her in all her glory. If conditions are right a special message posp"s up on your phone,"Fog" then we all rush from all over the #bayarea  to capture the #goldengatebridge  and #sanfrancisco in the #fog

Wait For It , Wait  "Exposure"

A fantastic evening spent shooting the #californiacoast  at #martinsbeach  tonight. Wet feet an all it was extremely worth the gamble driving out here today to do some #longexposure #sunset captures, though the fog did come in heavy as the sun started to set.

Drama In The Bay

This past Sunday I ended up a bit late for sunrise, so I opted for  shooting from the #berkeleyhills  . The #fog  was engulfing the entire #bayarea  except the #goldengatebridge  and #marinheadlands  so for once it was good I overslept my alarm.
This Image was taken at 500mm on a crop censor camera, so technically at 700mm. The fog truly created some major drama as the first light of the sun started to illuminate it, so I opted for drama filled #blackandwhite  image.

 She Made Up For It

This was my birthday gift from mother nature about 2weeks ago , she forgot all about me for sunrise. but she definitely made up for it with this absolutely stunning #sunset   light over my favorite city #sanfrancisco   #california  , this was taken from Fort Baker with best bud +Larry Nienkark to my side.

Drifting in the Dark

The days when everything works in complete harmony are very seldom but when I'm up here I forget about everything that is happening in my life, and purely just enjoy the moment. I wish it would be like this everyday, not having to worry about a thing hopefully things will arrange them self and I get to enjoy all that life has to offer. Till then moments like this is truly what I look forward to the most.

Valentine Delight

I opted for a relaxing drive along the #california    #mendocinocoast  and as luck would have it the sky blew up that evening at #bowlingballbeach . This is the start of the colors popping, only a 3stop filter was used as the rocks started to get covered by the quick rising tide.
My 4th trip here on a whim and its a score once more... I hope my luck continues

The Reward

Here is +Lisa See enjoying a gorgeous morning  for-filling her dream of seeing the #goldengatebridge  covered in fog for sunrise. 
After a few attempts she finally listened to me and got up early to reap the reward

Hidden Coastal Gem

Yesterday I decided to head up the coast for some #californiacoast  al goodness, unfortunately even though there was a some epic clouds the surf was to rough and high making a lot of locations unsafe to be. So I opted for a beautiful coastal drive along a Hwy 1 stopping by along some secret locals including this gem that I found last year by pure chance. I really do  need a wider lens though.
Want to see epicnes of this location make sure to check out +Bob Bowman s images from here after a storm, I was a day late.

Weathering Away 

This #longexposure Image was taken last year near the #saltonsea   #california  and it truly was a unique location as there was only 3 trees for miles, this being one.
They are in a extreme harsh environment completely surrounded by salt but yet they stand stong
