My family moved to East Bay nearly 20 years ago, so we’re pretty familiar with San Francisco. But I didn’t explore at Lands End Lookout, the westernmost point of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, until a few years ago. It’s one of the most scenic spots in the city, which is why Los Angeles-based photographer Peter Halvorsen led about 75 Instagrammers to it Sunday as destination for a #lumiainstameet.

As the Conversations blog explains, the aim was to “wander the 11-mile Coastal Trail, meet other Instagram aficionados, take photos of the wind-swept, historic area (you can still see the remains of 19th-century shipwrecks at low tide) with Lumia and other smartphones, and post them online with the hashtag #lumiainstameet.”

Head over to the Conversations blog to see more photos from the event and Halvorsen’s tips on taking Instagram photos with your Lumia phone.
