Mission Creek Park Photo Walk

Last Saturday, I joined an Adobe photo walk around Mission Creek Park in San Francisco. This was a fun event to share a few hours taking pictures of different subjects together with other photographers and friends.

But it was not all about taking pictures. After 2 hours of shooting, we were fed by Adobe (thank you!) and shown some of the new features of Lightroom 4, upcoming features of Photoshop CS6, Photoshop touch, and Adobe Revel. Photoshop CS6 looks very promising!

This was not the first time that I spent some time around Mission Creek, but I never saw the two draw bridges being actually used. As luck happened, a sailing boat was headed to the bay and both bridges opened.

Once the walk started, the sun showed mercy with us and blew away the fog. This seagull on top of a building alongside of Mission Creek enjoyed the view as well.

One of my own motivations was to work a bit on my macro photography. Specially I was interest in flowers. Unfortunately, there were not that many. The other side of the creek would have been better for this but the walk was a bit too short to make it over there.

When I saw a field of horsetails, I immediately knew what to do: Yes, move the camera while taking a picture. It is always interesting to see the more or less unpredictable outcome of doing this.

Interested in more? I posted some additional pictures on my flickr page.
