OMG, It’s the Biggest Photowalk in World History – A Huge Success for Google Plus

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

I’ll tell you, I checked out this moving Mid-Market menagerie tonight and I half expected to see a soggy Robert Scoble wearing nothing but Google Glass in the vanguard leading the parade.

There were hundreds of them! With millions of dollars worth of photography equipment blithely making their way through the troubled Microsoft Yammerloin.

As seen heading down Market in front of the now-shuttered Market Street Cinema strip club, which has supposedly “closed for remodeling” (or so they claim) for months. (I weep for the strippers – how will they pay their way through grad school now?)

Oh we go, a girl PhotoWalker, among all the photo geeks and Glassholes, at the foot of McAllister Street in the heart of the world’s largest open-air stolen iPhone store, you know, in corrupt Randy Shaw’s corrupt Twitterloin. You know, he himself helped draw the Twitter tax exclusion zone.)

Hai, chiizu, moribund Hibernia Bank!

I’ll tell you, whenever I photowalk through the gritty “Uptown Tenderloin” NeMa New Market NoSoMa North of South of Market area , I always wear four inch heels and carry a $700 full-size carbon fiber tripod, natch.

All right, I dare anyone to watch this two-hour video of this evening’s event.

UPDATE: Oh, Dave Martinez won a pair of Glass.

All right, keep on keeping on, and clicking and walking, Photowalkers!

When You’re Being Detained by the SFPD, Feel Free to Sit or Lie on the Sidewalk – That’s the Only Time It’s Legal

But don’t try to sit/lie when you’re not being detained – you could get detained or arrested for doing that…
