I survived the Photowalk

I had a great time at the Fort Lauderdale Photowalk today, and the weather cooperated, at least most of the time. We met at Las Olas Riverfront at around 9:30 AM. After the introductions, we went north on Brickell Avenue to SW 2nd Street.

We then went west, across the railroad tracks, to the Museum of Science & Discovery.

We then turned south to River Walk, where we continued back to the Riverfront plaza.

At this point, we stopped for some group photos and a few people left. We decided to cut the route short, since it was hot and most of us were tired. Instead of continuing to Las Olas Blvd, we went to Briny Pub for lunch & drinks.

The group

It turned out to be a good decision, since it started raining while we were having lunch. By this time we were down to only 8 people, including Paulo, his wife and his son.

We decided to wait until it stopped raining, but it didn’t show any signs of stopping.

Finally, Paulo had to leave, so the 5 of us who remained went indoors since we were getting wet on the covered patio. While we were waiting, we took some pictures of the fish tank.

Finally, we made a run for it, even though it was still raining pretty hard. In all, we had a great time and I learned a lot from some of the professionals about focus, exposure, color balance, and photo processing.

There were more Canons than Nikons, and most of the Nikon owners had a D300 or other high end models.

I posted a full gallery of my photowalk pictures at Flickr.
