San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival & Treasure Island Field Trip 9/17/11
Come photograph world class dragon boat racing besides cultural performances and other festival activities. The best time of day is probably afternoon due to the orientation of the sun. Treasure Island also offers views of downtown San Francisco and the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. You may also want to shoot a few images of Treasure Island Museum, one of the few buildings remaining from the 1939 World Fair. This may also be a last chance to photograph the Historic Naval Chapel built in 1943 of which is scheduled to be torn down during the Treasure Island redevelopment.
If you are driving to the festival you will find plenty of parking with just a short walk to the event. If you prefer to go by bus, take muni 108 to Treasure Island. Food and drink can be purchased in the festival food area.
PicTwo images will be presented at our 10/20/11 meeting.
