L- ots of color
Walking distance:
- 1.75 miles
- Mostly flat (with one or two staircases along the way)
- Rain cancels. Check WhatsApp or MeetUp that morning
Walk notes:
- Please download WhatsApp and join the photo walk chat. It’s the best way to reach each other. Use the link above or scan the QR code at the bottom of this doc. Critical communications (e.g. cancelation for weather) will also be posted to MeetUp.
- Different areas off the route offer great shots. Feel free to diverge from the route and meet back up at the four regroup spots along the way. See the map.  Times listed are when we DEPART from each spot.
- About 45 minutes in, we will take a group photo at a fun Chase Center spot
Meet-up logistics:
- Location: 580 20th Street. This is the building next to RH San Francisco. (Note: this is at the corner of Illinois Steet. Do not get it confused with 20th Avenue)
- We plan to start introductions promptly at 10 AM and begin the photo walk by 10:15. Please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier if you need time to park or use bathrooms.
- Parking: There are street parking spots and paid parking lots at the start and end of the route. Parking seems better at the starting point.
- Transit: The 3rd and 20th stop on the Muni T line is 1.5 blocks from the start
- Bathrooms: RH San Francisco has bathrooms. Technically, they are for customers only. Management is accommodating but has requested ‘no professional cameras’ inside and no groups larger than Be polite and don’t photograph inside without permission.
- Breakfast/coffee: (I can’t walk on an empty stomach): There are a few cafes 1-2 blocks away. Look up Jolt N Bolt, Wooly Pig, or The Plant Cafe.
End logistics:
- Time: noon.
- Location: Bus at Spark Social SF, 601 Mission Bay Blvd. North
- Spark Social is a fun food truck park. Feel free to stay for a bite.
- The starting point is a one-mile/20-minute simple walk back from Spark Social. 
Post-walk photo sharing:
- Please share some of your photos with the Facebook group SF Photo Collective: Photography Walks & Workshops.” MeetUp’s photo-sharing features are sub-par (e.g. slow and doesn’t support discussions.) What fun is a photo walk if we can’t see everyone’s photos?
- Sign up for the MeetUp group and RSVP there or email josh@weinbergphoto.com
