Thanks so much to +Thomas Hawk for arranging such a lovely evening last night. Around 40 of us met up for a tasty dinner at Henry Hunan's, quickly worked-off by a steep hike up Montgomery Street for a classic view of the Transamerica Pyramid. Much long exposure photography ensued. Here's one I snapped with my Panasonic GX1 and Leica 25mm lens (50mm equivalent). It's a ten second exposure at f8 and the base 160 ISO of the camera.
It was hard enough to hike up there with my light Micro Four Thirds kit, so maximum respect goes to +Peter Adams who lugged up a set of flashlights and batteries for an excellent group shot which you'll also see in various streams! I'm looking forward to seeing those jumping portraits Peter!
I was also flattered to have my portrait taken by +Daniel Krieger who'd just shot Annie Liebovitz the night before - looking forward to seeing that too!
It was fun evening and wonderful to catch up with old friends including +Karen Hutton , +Sam Breach , +Julia Peterson , +Faran Najafi , +Chris Chabot , +Swee Oh and to meet many new ones including +Barry Blanchard , +Ricardo Lagos , +Alexis Coram , +Bryan Nabong , +Suzanne Haggerty , +Guillaume Desachy , +Andrea Ewald , +Joette A. Wangsgard , +Bill Sanders , +Todd Sipes and everyone else! Sorry if I missed any of you, or if I didn't get a chance to chat much! Looking forward to seeing many of you again on Saturday and probably around town over the next couple of weeks!
