Los Angeles seen differently

Flickr Group

A few weeks ago, something special happened in and around Los Angeles. A group of about 50 Flickr members spent a week together doing what they enjoy the most: taking photos. None of them are professional photographers – they’re all just passionate about photos and they’re all connected through Flickr.

This wasn’t the first time they’d gotten together. Last summer, the group met up in the Midwest. But this time they came together in L.A., and we invited even more Flickr members to join and spend a day with them, walking through the amazing nature just east of the City of Angels.

Something Wicked

The Flickr meetup took place on an early Sunday morning at a very unusual venue: a parking lot in the middle of the hills around Pasadena, California. Usually what you see from Flickr meetups in Los Angeles are photos of buildings, street art, people. This time, David Talley, who organized the meetup, took the group on a small trail to the Sturtevant Falls to capture amazing photos of trees, grass, and leaves.

Check out all the photos from the Los Angeles meetup in December in the LA Flickr Meetup Group and the group for the 2012/2013 Flickr Gathering.

And remember, there might be a Flickr meetup near you, just check out our Flickr Meetup page at meetup.com/flickr, bring your camera and your Flickr app and meet new friends!
