G+5BayArea photowalk: the movie

I promised more photos after my teaser post (, so here they are. Since I took a few short videos, I put then together with my photos into an enhanced slide show.

I had a lovely time taking photos of the scenery, art, and model Kay Neupane at the Albany Bulb (in Albany, CA).

Camera: my trusty Nexus6P - makes phone calls too :)

Model: Kay Neupane (

Music: Easy Jam by Kevin MacLeod

I have an exciting update for those of you joining us on the #G+5Global #G+5BayArea in Albany on Saturday. We are going to have a model to join us. This is Khusbu Neupane, otherwise known as Kay. As you can see, I have photographed her many times. She loves to pose and be in front of a camera and she has generously volunteered to pose on Saturday for all of you.

If you expect you might like to share any images you take of Kay you will be asked to sign a simple model release which grants you the rights use them online for personal use and in your personal portfolios in return for copies of the images that she can use similarly. Tips for Kay will be welcomed, thank you!. Come and see me during the walk to sign the release.

And in other exciting news +Shelly Corbett will also be joining the walk. For those of you who don't know Shelly, he specializes in Toy Photography and rumour has it he will be bringing a few toys along and might be open to giving a little demonstration too.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

"Whatever interests, is interesting." - William Hazlitt

I originally took this photo last summer, but when I went to print it for a gallery show, I realized it was too contrasty. I took advantage of last weeks bay are G+ photo meet-up to reshoot this scene. Despite the wind I was able to capture the image I was looking for. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Happy weekend to all you lovely #bokeholics . Remember #Fridaysarebokelicious !!

GOOGLE+ 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (yes, it's that time already!)
Please Read #G+5Global
Global Gatherings including Photowalks are encouraged to mark the 5 year anniversary of the communities we have built around Google+
Organise a gathering in your area during the weekend of June 25th-26th.
Share this post with and Invite G+ friends past and present anyway you can. Let's thank Google+ for providing a place where we can share our passions and celebrate the relationships we've fostered here, the people we've met here and the communities we belong to here.

Use the Hashtag #G+5Global at the main hashtag and then create a local hashtag for your local event. Example #G+5BayArea. Use both the global and the local hashtags in your posts about your event so people can easily find an event near them and connect.

I will be creating a sunset Photowalk at Albany Bulb followed by curry in Albany for the San Francisco Bay Area. More details on that to follow.
