Santa Monica Photo Walk
Saturday was the 2nd Annual Worldwide Photo Walk organized by Scott Kelby and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. I joined about 35 photographers at 8 am in Santa Monica, one of some 900 Photo Walks. Santa Monica City College instructor Craig Mohr organized the walk and did a great job. His blog. I also met Ed Mangus, another Santa Monica City College instructor, who turns out, went to college with a couple Los Angeles Times staffers and knew many others. Mangus has worked at the Los Angeles Daily News back in the early 1980s.
My theme for the day was color. But I also brought along my friends, Jack the Antenna Ball and red Oktomat camera. Instead of doing a flash gallery, I am uploading images to a my photo walk flickr set. I am not finished going over the images, plus my Oktomat film is still being processed. So more images to come.

Santa Monica Photo Walk leader Craig Mohr gives a few safety tips before Saturday's event. The biggest tip - don't back up in front of a Santa Monica bus - they don't stop for nothing.
