Urban Photo Safari: Ride the Ducks

Oct 02, 2012 at 1pm

Over the weekend, we teamed up with tour company Ride the Ducks for the third installment of our Urban Photo Safari series. Equipped with Micro Holga cameras courtesy of portait studio Photobooth, passengers were all set for an informative (and hilarious) ride around the city with the opportunity to snap some shots of the city's historically beautiful views. The tour (which included a boat ride around the bay) was jam-packed with some cool San Francisco trivia and lots of sing-a-longs (or I guess I should say "quack-a-longs") to old-school hits. It seemed like everyone had a lot of fun on this sunny afternoon around the city and what better way to share this experience than with some photos? 


Adam greeted us at Duck Central and handed every guest one of these quackers. 


Once aboard, we distributed the cameras to the passengers. These cute "Baby Holgas" are the size of two fingers.


Brian (on the right with his daughter) from Photobooth was in attendance to help people load and shoot their cameras.


After driving around Ghirardelli Square, North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, and SOMA, it was time take a dip into the bay. From the water, Captain Van gave us a view of AT&T Ballpark, the Bay Bridge, the city skyline, and McCovey Cove. He even let a few of us navigate the boat while he snapped a few shots. 



Back on dry land, we finished up by whipping through South Beach, the Ferry Building, Coit Tower and the rest of the city. The tour finished with an enthusiatic quack-a-long to the Village People's "YMCA". Good times.


Captain Van was kind enough to let us snap these shots of him before he moved on to his next tour group. Another Urban Photo Safari success! We can't wait to see how our film turns out.
