What we'll do
We'll gather in the Plaza de Cesar Chavez and head out on a walking tour of downtown San Jose. Depending on the number of participants we might break into teams of 7-8. Each photographer will try to capture at least one good shot for each item on the shot list. Be creative. Shot List:
- Cool vehicle
- Interesting architecture
- Someone at work
- Something edible youve never tried
- An interesting staircase
- Selfie reflection in a window/mirror
- Something representing Faith
- Something that could be used as a weapon
- Something iconically San Jose
- A plant/flower
We'll use a free map/walking tour app by GPSmyCity. Download the iOS app "GPSmyCity: Walks and Articles with Offline Maps" on iTunes App Store or the Android app "San Jose Map and Walks" on Google Play. The app turns your mobile device into a personal tour guide and its built-in GPS navigation functions guide you from one tour stop to next. The app works offline so no data plan is needed.
Since we'll be walking in a downtown area I suggest going light: no tripods, etc. Bring only as much gear as you can keep an eye on at all times.
After the photo walk we can meet for lunch in San Pedro Square Market (http://www.sanpedrosquaremarket.com/directions-to-the-market) and visit.

Important to knowHow to find us:In the park near the corner of South Market Street and Paseo de San Antonio. (Note: Meetup.com's new upgrade makes it hard to pinpoint exact locations on their maps, this was the closest one, but this meetup isn't about "music in the park")
