Last week, we partnered with Leica Store San Francisco to host the first of our summer photo walk series, through downtown San Francisco during golden hour. Over 50 photographers from across the Bay Area attended, and our co-hosts—Pei Ketron and Daniel Cohen—split the group for two distinct experiences.
Pei's group headed from the Leica Store to the Embarcadero, to capture the area's distinctive architecture and modern design. Dan led a group on a more street photography-focused jaunt through Chinatown, where some participants took a break for dim sum and drinks and others shot portraits by alley-light.
Below, see highlights and some of our favorite photos from the walk - including the winning entry in our Leica Bowery bag #InANewLight giveaway, by Peter Phan (@_buraiha). Peter captured the community spirit of the event through a series of evocative, uniquely composed shots that feel both immediately familiar and distinctly authentic. Congratulations to Peter and the runners up, below, who will receive ONA gift cards.
