    Once again, it's almost time for the annual Michigan Photographic Historical Society's Photographica show at the Novi Community Center. There are usually about 50 tables from vendors, collectors, and exhibitors. For the past several years I have been at the MiPHS sale table, and I'll be there again this year with more low-priced goodies from books to odd equipment, cameras, lenses, and so forth. You never know what will turn up at this show, so that is why it is always a fun event. I no longer go to the other camera shows, as they have gotten smaller with only a few vendors. The MiPHS show has images, postcards, cameras, books, film, and hardware, so it really does cater to a broader crowd than just camera collectors. In previous years we have had demonstrations by Judy Kalter on Cyanotypes, and Bill Schwab on platinum printing. I know there will be some new exhibits this year, too. It's become a great event to meet up with old and new friends, as well!

    This really is a great show for those that can make it. I thoroughly enjoyed doing a demo and talking to people there. Very well attended and there is some really cool stuff to be had. Unfortunately I will be missing this year's event, but wishing everyone the best.
