    OK. If there are any folks out there who wanted to join us at the Waterford, CT cottage in June but couldn't make it, some of us will be back there on August 15 for another go at this "day at the beach photo-phest" thing. No big cook-out this time, since we tend to spend the whole day hanging around and talking that way. This time I'd rather shoot and eat pizza later.

    Right now it's Papagene and me, with the two Eileens (our inestimable and ever-patient spouses.) I'd love to expand on the set of portrait images done with my old Leitz projection Dimax lens, so come join us. (pesphoto is the lucky subject of the attached image)

    Small print: Wives, companions, children, dogs - all enthusiastically welcomed.

    Thanks Whitey,
    Hopefully my photo doesnt scare people away :smile:
    I'll be there if I can, as of now it looks good.
    Look forward to doing some shooting.

    The schedule for the end of the summer has become much clearer at this point... we had several travel possibilities, but none have worked out for a variety of reasons, and we will, in fact, be here that weekend. Hope it's not too late to give you a thumbs up on this, Whitey. We enjoyed it last year, and I'd love to see you both and other APUGgers again!!

    Glad to hear it, Suzanne. Too late? The afternoon of the 15th is late... the 4th is not. The more the merrier!

    Art stopping by on Sunday doesn't help us others....he needs to stop by on Saturday. It looks like I might make it... does anyone have any polaroid film for the 4x5?? Also, Whitey...are you going to have a flea market table set up? I should have a number of items to give away...

    Art??? I thought Art was in the other half of the world?? Saturday or Sunday, I'd love to see him.
    Drew. I have stuff... boy, do I have stuff. A swap table is always possible when you come to see me. I'll set something up. I'll be seeing Dick again this week as well. I may have even more stuff. No Polaroid for 4x5, though - that went last year. I gave away 40 or 50 old sheets, I think.

    So... so far we have me, Gene, Suzanne, Paul, Drew (maybe? The last post sounds definite), Art (maybe on Sunday) and accompanying spouses, kids and hangers on. Sounds great! More are welcome, however, so, if you're reading this and saying, "maybe I should go...", come on down! Google Map.

    As soon as you can get there. Morning light is nice for shooting, so I don't want to just hang out at the cottage. If you come and I'm not there, there will be a note, or you can just go on in and grab some beach tags from the small glass bowl on the corner shelves to the left of the sink and hang out at the beach.

    Hey I'm interested. Morning breakfast is always good. I'll be the tall guy walking around with the RZ. Is there any entrance to the park in particular where people will meet?
