About This Walk
Fullerton is an amazing city with a lot of history and beautiful architecture. We will start on the west side of the Fullerton College parking structure at the corner of Chapman and Pomona Ave. (There should be plenty of parking available on Pomona Ave.)
Starting at the auditorium, a beautiful piece of architecture, we will move on to the mural at the high school. Next we will walk down Pomona checking out a couple of beautiful old churches, the old post office on Commonwealth, and make our way down to the train station. After that we will make our way up Harbor Blvd. checking out the eclectic variety of shops and buildings. We will end up at El Faralito Jr where, if you’re interested, you can enjoy lunch, at your own expense.
This is a very casual walk. We can move at whatever pace makes the majority of the group comfortable. The last time I led this walk we were lucky enough to be able to pop into the auditorium while people were preparing for an event. We were asked, very nicely, to leave but we had a few minutes to photograph the interior. We were also lucky enough to photowalk on a day the railroad museum was open, giving us a chance to explore some of the train cars and learn a bit of history about rail travel through Fullerton. I can’t guarantee either of these opportunities happening again, but we can always hope!
I love photography. I got my first SLR in 1972, had my own darkroom a couple years later and have taken hundreds of thousands of pictures over the years. I prefer landscape photography, but I’m pretty proud to call Fullerton home after moving here in January of 2019. Before that I spent 30 years living in Brea, so I’ve been familiar with Fullerton for many years. I’m also a proud CSUF graduate (1980). I am a former teacher and principal and I love helping out new photographers. This walk is definitely for any skill level. Bring your cell phone or your top of the line mirrorless or DSLR. It doesn’t matter. No judgement here.
