Happy Birthday Flaskmob!

Happy Birthday Flaskmob!

Once a month in San Francisco, the Flaskmob (Evan & Sabina Thompson) puts together this event that is just hard to describe. It's labeled as "photography walk",  but what myself and the NTHGLS crew attended this past Sunday night was far from that simple. Perhaps the magnitude of this Sunday night's event was escalated for the 1 year birthday of Flaskmob, I don't know.
 

 

I can see how these Flaskmob events may be perceived as pure chaos or a riot. The truth is it's a relatively organized event, displaying various forms of art while providing a canvas for another art at the same time. It's truly unique and difficult to explain with words but easy to show you in pictures

Thousands of people on the move from block to block. From Union Square's Market St., to Chinatown, and  Northbeach

Fire spitters, steel wool spinners, party people, SFPD, skaters, photographers, DJ...you name it...

 

I've known about the Flaskmob gatherings since the announcement of their first event one year ago, however I had yet to attend one. Since learning about them, the concept of a photography walk was intriguing. I'm very pleased to finally attend an event, until next time...
