FYI, Bob and I met up in Anaheim, CA yesterday. We had some coffee and hung out at the ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center)"

Bob took some digital pics, and I shot on film. I'm sure Bob will post soon when he gets back home. I'll post in a month or two, once I finish my roll of film.

Always nice to meet fellow Dyxumers!!

Bob, thanks again for the Dyxum patches too.

Bob ... yes, Tu or We mornings are good options. I'll PM you, see if we can work something out.

And yes, I agree with sybercitizen, La Jolla is a great spot for photography. UC San Diego is my alma mater, so spent several years around that area. The campus is high above La Jolla. Another favorite spot is the Torrey Pines Glider Port, across the street from the UCSD campus ... beautiful views of the coastline.

Make it a point to get to La Jolla for some photos if you haven't been there (not that there aren't dozens of other great destinations in the area).

@ADub128...

It looks like I can get to Irvine station relatively easily (under 2 hours)... My problem is most likely to be with a Monday afternoon/evening meetup as 3PM in Orange county is going to be Midnight as far as my body is concerned (London is 9 hours ahead)... so there is a possibility that I won't be in too great a state - on previous west coast trips I have tended to flake out about 8PM and find myself wide awake at 2AM...

Do you have any morning availability?

Hi Bob ... San Diego is a bit far from LA. Any chance you could meet halfway Monday afternoon/evening? There is good train service between San Diego and south Orange County. My Tuesday and Wednesday evenings are booked up at the moment.

Safe travels!

A year on, I will be in San Diego Monday-Wednesday (3-5 Feb).

I'm not quite sure about hotels and because I will have a transfer, there is the danger of getting stuck in transit, but if anyone would like to meet up, even if briefly...

I'm afraid I just got cancelled.

However, other trips are quite likely, so I will keep folks informed...

@Bob J ... yes, keep us posted on your itinerary. It would be cool to meet up. Duarte is an old LA suburb. Old (and famous) Route 66 runs through nearby. We can meet up at an In-N-Out Burger in nearby Baldwin Park. In-N-Out Burger is definitely a must-do SoCal eatery.

@trainerKEN, yes the fires have been horrible. Here's an iPhone pic looking towards Malibu taken from Torrance Beach in my Instagram feed. (I wish there was an easier way to post pics in the forum.)

Duarte, CA isn't much to look at, but you're not so far away from Pasadena (about 10-15 minutes away by car). A lot more places to walk around and shoot there IMO


EDIT: I replied BEFORE the fire, I'm sorry to hear about and see all the devastations in Southern California at the moment

My Courier travels are set to take me to Duarte, CA in early December (1-4 are the provisional dates I have)...

...if anyone is available, I'd love to meet up. I will post more details when I know.

Welcome gobogirl! How did the photos from San Juan Capistrano turn out? My wife and I went out too salt creek to catch a beautiful sunset after we last met. We haven't set anything in stone yet so far I only gotten responses back from 2 other users. I'm free this weekend to shoot if others wanna meet up even if just a small group. cruzerpics aka: brandon
