Chinese New Year Parade

Just a heads up for everyone. This years San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade will be Saturday, February 11 at 5:30pm.

I know we were talking about a gathering around the end of January. I'm not sure how easy it would be to meet at a crowded event like this, but we could easily meet for coffee afterwards. I'm sure it will be a cold night and a warm cup of of joe and conversation might be the perfect finish to the night.

"Nowhere in the world will you see a lunar new year parade with more gorgeous floats, elaborate costumes, ferocious lions, exploding firecrackers , and of course the newly crowned Miss Chinatown U.S.A. and her court. A crowd favorite is the spectacular 201" Golden Dragon ("Gum Lung) It takes a team of over 100 men and women from the martial arts group, White Crane to carry this dragon throughout the streets of San Francisco."

January BAP Gathering

First I'd like to introduce myself. My name is David Kapp, and my blog is Life Kapptured. My photography at this point is film only, and my main concentration is street photography. I'm a new contributor here, and I hope to make a good addition to the group.

Second, it has been a long time since out last meeting. With the Holiday season behind us, and new toys in our camera bags I would like to set up a meeting where we can get together and catch up. I'm open to ideas. We could do a sit down talk & share session, or a walkabout photo outing. What has worked best in the past?

What is your idea for dates? I know some people will have a 3 day weekend with Martin Luther King, Jr's day on Monday the 16th. This is short notice, but could open an opportunity for those with busy week schedules. If not this weekend, we can try for the end of the month, possibly Saturday the 28th

Lets try to figure out what works best for the majority. I will be following the comments here closely.

Thanks!
Dave

Get-together?

What's your schedule like? Should we plan to get together sometime in early May? Do we want to sit and chat or go on a photo wander?

Also, I need new photos to update the header. If you've got something SF related, drop me a line.

2/5 BAP recap

We had our largest get together yet with the following attendees: Dennis Mojado, Derek Powazek, Jessica Pezalla, John Curley, Jose Luis Martinez, Kevin Bjorke, Lilia Ahner, Lucas J. Shuman, Martin Taylor, Michael David Murphy, Paul Cloutier, Pete Beck, Russ Morris, Steve Rhodes and Victor Zhang.

While it wasn't raining, it was a tad chilly and I should have added the caveat "dress warmly." Russ Morris has posted 6 photos from the event to his Flickr stream. Many admired and even experimented with Paul's fabulous Frankenlens (Diana lens mounted onto a Canon body cap).

Thanks to everyone for coming out.
