August 2023 Activity: Liberty Station Photo Walk

Most of Liberty Station has been restored at this point, but a few barracks remain in their old and deteriorating state, inviting studies of colors, shapes and textures (hint) with the camera. Join us for a photo walk there, in August.

As usual, this is not a Sierra Club outing. No Sierra Club Certified Outing Leader will be present. You may join, leave and participate at your leisure on the scheduled date. You participate at your own risk. The details of this activity are provided below. This in-the-field gathering is open to the public. Members and non-members are equally welcome. Come meet other photography enthusiasts!

We’ll start our walk at the undeveloped barracks. When we feel like we’ve spent enough time there, we can proceed to Liberty Station Public Market (indoors) which has many vendors, coffee shops and eateries that open for business at 11 AM. Grab a late breakfast or an early lunch!

Photography Gear

A standard zoom lens in the 24-xx range will be the most versatile lens here but depending on your photographic preferences, a macro lens, ultra wide angle or telephoto lens could also be useful, of course. There will be areas with bright sunlight, open shade, and darker, shaded passages. A tripod will most likely not be necessary but if you like additional camera support, a monopod will be less obtrusive.
