Tacoma Photo Gang - Shot da Tideflats (update 5)

The second meet-up of the Tacoma Photo Gang went well today and we had record attendance! Thirteen of us met and headed into the Tideflats to shoot some shots. With simple maps I provided we carpooled in five cars and made our way to four spots. First was the west end of the Hylebos Bridge where we also saw a view of the fabled Kalakala ferry. From there we went to an old fire department building near the Port of Tacoma on 11th Street. Further down 11th we spent some time under and around the Murray Morgan Bridge and were even invited out onto the docks to see some of the dragon boats. Last stop today was down "D" Street near the marina.

The weather held well today with just a dash of rain when we started. Our hearty bunch stuck together all the way through despite some rather chilly breezes. Anyway, enough with the jibba jabba, here are my photos. Keep an eye on this page as I'll also be adding links to other folks' shots as they hit teh Intarwebs.
