National Geographic Your Shot Photo Walk - San Francisco, CA (3/30/2014)

This past Sunday (3/30/2014), National Geographic's Your Shot Team hosted a photo walk out at The Warming Hut (Torpedo Wharf) in San Francisco, CA. I am here to show you the photos I shot while on the photo walk. I also headed to Fort Point after the photo walk and shot some photos there too. The photos will be split into several parts. I hope you enjoy viewing them.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.
Parts: National Geographic Your Shot Photo Walk | Presidio & Fort Point (Part 1)Fort Point (Part 2) | 

The photos for today are just from the photo walk. The photos from Presidio and Fort Point will come in later posts. I also want to take this time to thank National Geographic's Your Shot team for hosting this wonderful photo walk. Please come do another one in the SF Bay Area soon! I had a really great time talking to you guys and taking photos. Also, thank you very much for the free breakfast and goodies. #YourShotMeetUp just like you guys told me.

Message from the Photographer: I will continue with my photos from China after this series because this was quite a popular event and it took place recently. I hope you guys don't mind. Enjoy the photos.

When I arrived at the meet up, the group split into 3 groups. I decided to join the group that was looking at microscopic marine wildlife. When I arrived, the National Geographic photographer just fished up some seaweed from the ocean bottom and put it in a glass jar for us to photograph. The photo walk started a bit after sunrise. This photo was shot on Torpedo Wharf.

After the photography part, the National Geographic crew and The Warming Hut prepared us breakfast. It was very delicious! :) Thank you so much National Geographic for the wonderful photo walk. I had a very good time. 

Here is a photo shot back home. National Geographic also gave the attendees some free goodies. I got 2 pins, a t-shirt, and a reusable grocery bag. Thank you so much guys! Love the designs! 

These are all the photos for today. Next time I will continue with photos from Presidio and Fort Point. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
