Drink And Click™ SF518Wow, 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 17:00:0068G+

Drink And Click™ SF518This 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 +Nellie Sisti 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 +Michael Bonocore, +Tony Eckersley, or +Robyn Chau directly to find out where we are!Drink and Click ™ SF January Event!2013-01-25 18:00:0034G+
Eric Raeber1,181,613I 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 18:30:0014G+

Thomas Hawk7,275,787The one and only +Camera Labs Guru +Gordon Laing 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 +Daniel Krieger will also be joining us from NYC and +Suzanne Haggerty 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 17:30:00133G+
Doug Kaye61,901I'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 04:30:0014G+

Matt Shalvatis21,054#50FFF - Support your fellow photographers.  Please share!Here are 50 (or so) photographers who have posted something within the last week that has got my attention.  I gathered these from my stream, weekly photo themes, some photo communities, and random postings I stumbled upon.  Regular photography, HDR Photography, Paintography, and some other photos of interest.And that is my criteria for this circle.  They got my attention.  Well, OK, there is just a bit more.  • I checked their streams to make sure they’ve posted a few other photos in the last week.  But they don’t have to be all photos, all the time.• Made sure the best I could that the photos were their own. • Made sure they are lesser known photographers.  The well known ones don’t need more promotion. • Nothing unusually strange or bizarre in their streams.  If you’d like to be considered for the next weekly circle, post a comment below and share this circle.  This guarantees that I will look at your stream.  It does not guarantee inclusion in the next circle.  Get my attention, and you're included! This circle will be all new every week.   2013-02-15 17:42:5551511CC G+

Dedication

Broken foot (2013) , no sleep for days and whatever else had happened. I'm dedicated to the lifestyle of being a #fogaholic  no matter what really.
Since it is ever changing conditions you just have to be there to capture these captivating moments.

This is one of my images featured in #gleammagazine

Today I invite +Jameson Savage  hoping for some sweet Oregon captures.

California Dreaming

 Friday was a spectacular sunrise for us #fogaholics  in the #marinheadlands  but for #sunset  I was hoping to get a capture from twin peaks, unfortunately the #fog  pushed over the SF Hills so I opted for the Berkeley Hills to capture the fog and #goldengatebridge   It was an excellent choice :)

Storm in the Capital

This was captured with my cell as I was in #berlin #germany last week. I also had the pleasure of getting to meet +Glen Schlueter that day, the weather on the other hand was not cooperative but I did manage to get some sweet shots. Unfortunately my computer died so everyone including myself has to wait, but then again not really anything new right ;)

I Know She Is Here Somewhere 

This Image was taken during an all nighter with #fogaholics  buddy +Larry Nienkark in the #marinheadlands  after my exhausting trip back from Utah. The decision to stay out and up even longer then anyone not on drugs shouldn't possibly be able to do, was yet so worth it.  I got some new perspectives capturing the #fog  engulfing the #goldengatebridge  with the #lighttrails  from Hwy101 traffic approaching her.

Golden Hour 

I took this Image a few days ago in the hopes of some color, no such luck but I did get the next best thing and that was the sun poking in and out of the cloud band.

So far this is the best location I have found for the #oaklandskyline  during sunset time during this time of the year.

Pyramid of Gold

I always wanted to capture this moment, I had a certain vision for it and yesterday I was able to get the capture. Yes this is yesterday's capture, a rare opportunity for people to see my work within 28hours.

This image is available for purchase as well as many others on my website

ATTENTION

Due to a very close friend loosing her camera to the ocean yesterday, 30% of the proceeds of all sales for the next 2months go to helping her get back a part of her life that was taken so suddenly.

No Parking Lot for Once

No traffic on the #baybridge  going into #sanfrancisco   only happened a few times, I was not around for it so I had to make my own.
She really is the work horse of the #bayarea  without her it is chaos.

Being The Witness 

I rarely make photos with myself in them but this was just to spectacular of a scene to not have a selfie.

This Image was taken during an extraordinary night of hunting #fog  from all over the Bay.

Perfect Blend 

This Image was taken at  500mm during a early morning #fog  hunt in May. This is a single exposure as the #moon  sets behind the wall of fog that covered the entire #marinheadlands  .

25 Million Dollar View

This Image was taken on June 8th from Belvedere with +Larry Nienkark chasing #fog  for sunset, unfortunately the fog retreated right during sunset.
Before I picked up Larry I scouted a few spots and found a house with this kind of view for sale for a meager 25Mill. 
A #fogaholics  dream, you would never miss good fog day ;)

Bay Bridges

This was taken during #bluehour  a few weeks back. This is the New Eastern Span of the #baybridge  as the old one gets demolished. They are taken it apart piece by piece and there for a gap has created that gets larger every day.

Rolling In

This was taken 2 weeks back, on one almost epic night of #fog   hunting.
I was sitting in the same location for over 7 hours, never moved my chair and got devoured by blood suckers. It was just great to see the fog rolling back into the #bayarea  covering up #sanfrancisco  and Oakland. All in all a good afternoon and evening to be a #fogaholic

Blown Around Like A Rag-doll 

This Image was taken during the hunt for my first Fivedayquest, it was extremely windy during #sunset  . I was being pushed around by the wind and it even knocked over my tripod, no camera on it.  So I just gave it one test shot and this is it. 
This is a short 19sec #longexposure  of the fog and clouds moving through and over #sanfrancisco

Happy Birthday +Larry Nienkark

To my best shooting buddy and friend one could have. Larry really has become an influential person in my life, from photography to the wisdom he carries.

Thanks for joining me on all those crazy all nighter and random last minute trips from epic ones to failed trips, you are always good company and I'm proud to call you my best friend.

This Image was one of those awesome mornings near the GGB after the sun had come up.

Also a fitting Image for this day :p

The Golden Egg

This past Thursday I had a fun time at #4milebeach  along the #californiacoast  . This was a fun photo outing and I got to meet the very talented +Mai Huong which it was an honor to finally meet the creator of the fantastic images from Vietnam. This evening was spent with  +Lisa Co{who came all the way from SD to play with us on a beach with minimal clouds} +Swee Oh +Alex Lapidus +Sam Breach +Sam Post +Sean McLean +Linda Villers +Eric Raeber +Leo Deegan  and +Gazzaroonii T. . Fun times with everyone.

Part 2

This Image was made a few weeks back during a spectacular fog night of me being a pure #fogaholic  and insomniac driving from one vantage point to the next. There just is not enough time in the night to hit up all spots. This Image depicts the bridge being completely empty with the #stars  above through the clouds while the #goldengatebridge  is enveloped in #fog

The Escape

Some people see the wall of #fog  approach and just have to escape to a warm and sunny paradise. Well it's exactly the  opposite for me as the fog creates the paradise.

New Vantage Point

I have been out looking for a decent vantage point to capture the #oaklandskyline  for a while now. Who knew it was less then 5miles from where I live. The evening was very hazy, yet I was hoping for the best even  though I knew there was a fog bank outside the gate possibly blocking all the light and colors. Well I walked away with one stunning capture after another as the sky just blew up on Friday night, with the light of the  #sunset  lasting for ever.

Some of the friendliest people in this neighborhood offering me food and drink as I sat there waiting for the show for a few hours.

At the Edge

At the edge of the #fog  there was a light, with a  little bit of patience I knew I would get something fantastic. I  had waited about 40min  and then the light reveled itself,it was #alcatraz .  This Image was taken from my favorite spot in the Berkeley Hills at 439mm.

In the Dead of Night

This Image was made during an all nighter just a few weeks back. I finally had the capture I was after at night from #twinpeaks  with the #goldengatebridge  enveloped by #fog  
It is a bit nerve wrecking standing there by yourself with all this gear in the dark while there are people around you smoking and drinking, you just never know who might be up there and what intentions they could have. I'm ready to protect and defend my gear with a small knife ;) and my monopod, I had to do it once before and will do it again.

Calm Waters

This was my first time at this location in #sausolito  a few days ago during #sunrise  . I picked the right day too, it was extreme low tide and exposed some of the old pier remnants that even a local morning walker had never seen.

Green Channel

Ahhhh how I miss the #greenmossrocks  from the Candy Store in #lajolla .
This Image was made well on my Birthday, could not have asked for better clouds that day either. Also +Lisa Co treated me to the best Sushi Place in SD, really a pure treat, thanks for showing me all the awesome locals too. The best B day trip lasting 10days of just pure awesomeness.  I still have quite a few more images to edit from that trip.

Next B Day trip will blow all my trips out of the water, I'm feverishly saving up for it too.

Painted

My first time capturing the #paintedladies  here in #sanfrancisco . I have driven past them countless times but never stopped to capture this landmark. So last Friday I decide to stop as we had some killer clouds for #sunset  , unfortunately 2 of them are under construction and the streets where set up for Bay To Breakers, which meant I had a hard time finding a good composition.

Over Dark Waters

After driving around in the Montclair Hills last night I found a new vantage point to capture the new eastern span of the  #baybridge . There was only one problem, it was ridiculously windy. I will need to come back and try this again, till then enjoy the new view.

Awaiting the Return

I was driving back from Utah wondering if there would be #fog   and as I got closer to the Bay Area I had to check. I was very much delighted as I saw that web cam on my screen, the problem was I had already been up for 50+ hours strait. But being a true #fogaholic   I called up +Larry Nienkark to see if he would like to join me. We ended up pulling an all nighter hiking and capturing the #goldengatebridge  and the #marinheadlands   in all its glory as it was being covered by the silky veil.
That night was pure awesomeness as the #moon  illuminated the fog for us.
The drive home, the longest exhausting drive I ever had to do.

Ominous Reef

As I entered the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument I had nothing but sunshine and some clouds. As I got to #capitolreefnationalpark  the clouds started to just look ominous. I did get to see some lightning but was unable to capture it.

The Island

Within time I will find a way to the island, until then all I can do is stare from the distance and wonder about the hidden beauty on it.

Rarity 

It is rare to see not a soul driving, walking or riding across the #goldengatebridge  but you do have those rare and quite moments. One of the best parts of being an insomniac   "you get things all to yourself"

Cold Darkness

It was a cold clear night my first time near #mtshasta . I was on the look out for  certain areas to get a decent composition without having to walk too far away from the car. Every time I opened the car door I felt like I had opened the freezer door, it was only in the teens and I actually had just come back from crater lake where it was in the (-) temps. At some point after a few attempts I convinced myself to step out to get at least one   #nightscapes  capture.

Bullet

This image was made during a fun evening with +Gordon Laing +Barry Blanchard +Sean McLean +Swee Oh +Cynthia Pyun +Mitchell Weinstock +Traci Furtado and +Dima Barsky .
These little #hummingbird 's are freaking quick, first they float like a helicopter above you and then at an instant like a bullet out of a gun they shoot across the sky. I had a lot fun trying to capture them and managed to get a few good ones, looking forward to trying this again at some point.

Mint Sunset

A spectacular location shown to me by my gracious host +Lisa Co during my birthday trip. This location is  known as #windansea   to the general public, to me it's known as the "Candy Store"  located in  #lajolla . This image was made during a typical #socal   #sunset

The Life I Live 

I eat, breathe and chase the #fog , there really is no such thing as sleep involved. If the conditions are right you can find me traveling all over the #bayarea  and #sanfrancisco   capturing the fog in all its glory. 
Being a #fogaholic  you seem to devote your life to the chase and you really could care less about anything else.

This image was made last Friday with my fellow #fogaholics  and friends +Larry Nienkark and +Joe Azure in the #marinheadlands   #california , it was almost perfection with the #goldengatebridge covered  during #sunrise including with killer clouds.

Brewing Colors

This image was made back in July of 2013. Last minute +Larry Nienkark and I decided to drive up to #mounttamalpais  to capture the #sunset  . This day the #fog  was far out creeping along the shore line as storm was brewing creating breathtaking clouds. The problem was, it created  wind gusts of up to  40mph. Shaking the camera rigorously due to the filters being attached.

California Dreaming

 Friday was a spectacular sunrise for us #fogaholics  in the #marinheadlands  but for #sunset  I was hoping to get a capture from twin peaks, unfortunately the #fog  pushed over the SF Hills so I opted for the Berkeley Hills to capture the fog and #goldengatebridge   It was an excellent choice :)

Dedication

Broken foot (2013) , no sleep for days and whatever else had happened. I'm dedicated to the lifestyle of being a #fogaholic  no matter what really.
Since it is ever changing conditions you just have to be there to capture these captivating moments.

This is one of my images featured in #gleammagazine

I Think I Forgot Something

This Image was a bit of a mistake on my part. I forgot I was in "Auto Focus"  due to some panning shots a bit earlier. If you know me you know that I rarely use "Auto Focus" especially at night. I had turned the focus ring to perfection and then hit the shutter button on my remote, after a 70sec #longexposure  this Image came up on my LCD screen. First I was actually pretty aggravated but then the image sort of grew to my liking.
