Pack your rain gear! Let's do an early morning photowalk along the front and back sides of Galveston's The Strand this weekend.

I know what you're thinking, why are we walking down an ally street where they toss the trash? Believe it or not, the back streets of Galveston have a very rich environment of unusual texture and color. The century-old infrastructures are a fantastic canvas for photographic experimentation and practice. And if its interesting and unusual, its just the kinda photowalk you'll expect me to set up. :-))


Current weather forecast says it's going to rain, so we may get some interesting wet building, water puddles and water reflection street shots!

If you have never shot in the rain, check out my blog post with tips and tricks on staying comfortable and keeping your camera safe ... and why shooting in the rain is really cool. Here's the link:http://twentyfourmoves.com/shooting-in-the-rain-on-a-budget/

Here is a map of our route:http://24mov.es/2EL5mJH

BONUS: This is the same day as Mardi Gras, so if you stay after lunch, you can see the Z Krewe Parade at 1pm and Mardi Gras King's Parade at 2:30pm! What's more fun that wet streets? People having a great time at a parade in the rain! :)

Parking: The parking situation is going to be questionable. Since this is the same day as Mardi Gras, some areas normally used for parking may be blocked. Arrive a little early to find the best parking spots.

How to find us:We will meet in and around Starbucks at 7am.
