Jump They Say

Perhaps you saw them on Saturday? A large group of about 80 amateur photographers traversing Bernal Hill in a cheerful gaggle as part of that Flickr Meetup organized by Neighbor Markus?

They started at the secret Esmerelda slides before wandering down Winfield to Cortland Avenue. From there, they strolled up Ellsworth to take in the views from atop Bernal Hill, before drifting down Folsom to call it a day at Precita Park. Along the way, Neighbors Vicky and David from the Bernal History Project provided a running narration of the historical points of interest visible from the streets.

Yet even if you didn’t join in the fun, you can still enjoy seeing Bernal Heights through the lens of the photographers who looked at our neighborhood with fresh eyes:

  1. According to Google Maps, I’m 2814 miles from the old ‘hood. These pics sure capture it tho… The old chevy could have been there when I left in ’67.
