Picnic at the Bay

Once a year our huge IT group has a team building event; for the last 2 years its been held at Mission Bay. Last year I just happened to have my camera on me and I volunteered to take some picture of the event, after that I was asked to be the official photographer of the event this year and I couldn’t have been happier 🙂 The whole idea behind the even is to spend half a day at the bay doing a BBQ, playing games and socializing. Consider how huge our group is there is an actual even planning group that takes care of this: they setup all the events for the day to make sure that there is something for everyone. Here are some more pictures from the day, you can find the full gallery here
