Treasure Island with Photojojo

Last week I attended my first Photojojo Photo Safari. If you are not familiar with Photojojo, it is a website that gives great photography tips and occasionally, the company will organize photo outings in the San Francisco and New York City area. On this particular Saturday, our leader Todd, at the top of the huge crowd gave a brief history of Treasure Island before we broke off to start our photo journey. It never cease to amaze me how the internet easily brings all these strangers together.

This is Treasure Island's main administrative building. It was used as a backdrop in the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie.

This is the interior of the administrative building. The mural on the wall displays a brief history of the island. As a matter of fact, this building used to house the island's museum, but is currently empty except for a few occupied offices on the 2nd floor. There are plans for a huge housing development on the island. I hope they preserve some of these historic buildings.

P.S. I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving last week had a great time. I thought it came and went by too fast.

I love the mural!
I'm glad Thanksgiving didn't last any longer. It's very hard on a woman who doesn't know when to quit eating. lol.
