    Lee L sent notice that Photorama USA will be having their “EVERYTHING PHOTOGRAPHIC SHOW” at the Days Inn (formerly Quality Inn) in Richfield, OH, Sunday, March 6, 2011, from 10 AM – 3 PM. The location is about ¼ mile south of the OH Turnpike Exit 173 on Brecksville Road.

    In January several of us met for lunch and looked at prints afterward. Peter brought some great vintage prints he has been collecting. It was suggested we should do it again in March. If interested, we could prowl this show in the morning and meet for lunch at the Musketeer restaurant just south of Wheatley Rd. and Brecksville Rd.

    Post here so we can get an idea of who might come. PM with your email if you would like me to forward a $1 off coupon. $6 Admission, $5 with coupon, Students $2 with ID. Let’s see. That gets me in for a $1.

    Hope to see you. If anyone wants to bring prints to show, we can go to the Powers’ house after lunch and have reasonable light and a table with unreasonable comments.

    Alright, a Sunday! That I can do. Been awhile, John, looking forward to seeing you. I'll bring some new work.

    Are you planning on being there for the opening at 10am?

    Wow,
    I am on the fence on this. Sue will be out of town either Friday and Sat or Sat and Sunday. Would love to drive up and see you all.

    Speaking of old prints, I have a dilema I have some of my Grandfather's prints and that of his friend Nickolas Boris and they are beginning to show their age. Mr. Boris's prints are EPIC and beautiful, and my grandfather's are good too byt Mr. Boris was an exceptional photographer. They need attention and I am no archivast but they need an additional 100 years or more to bring joy.

    If I can make it up then I would love to show them to you all and see what you think. If not sometime in the near future. I probably should start a new thread on APUG (1 million plus posts YEA) for advice. I have digital scans of most of them and could post a few to show what I mean.

    Mr. Boris was Greek and some of his images are online. I have a print of the men with the nets, plus some rather stunning ones not shown here. See some here

    Yes, I usually am there at the opening and gone shortly there after if there are no enticements.

    I thought we could work out what to do with who ever comes. If people are finding things of interest we can stay until lunch time. If I haven’t found anything of interest and others have, I can always get a cup of coffee and read the paper. Alternatively we can go to our house early and then lunch. I just think it is great that people are interested in getting together to talk. If weather permits some may want to go shoot in the PM or go back to the show.

    You all come and bring pictures.

    John

    Watch those fences. That can hurt.

    I'll have to confirm this with Dolly, but if people want to drive in Saturday and stay over night (camp or hotel) we could all have dinner together. I know it is a long drive from Dayton and Pittsburgh is not just around the corner.

    Lee, those pictures sound great. Please bring them. As to preservation information I think as you suggest that you will get more readers with a separate thread.

    I recently got the e-mail notification and I was thinking the same thing. Musketeers is good. How about meeting up there 11 to 12:00? I have some new prints since our last meeting.

    Dale,

    Glad you are coming. "How about meeting up there 11 to 12:00?" Do you mean at the restaurant or the show at 11-12?

    I suggested meeting at the show at 10 AM when it opens. If people want we can then meet at the restaurant at 12. After lunch, assuming it is okay with Dolly, we can go to our house to look at prints.

    I talked with Peter a few minutes ago. He has received the Atget print he talked about at our last lunch and thinks he will be able to bring it to show Sunday. This all subject to what ever happens in his life between now and then. He has collected a Watkins print that he will bring and possibly something else will have arrived by then.

    Peter says he is all done now. I think that is the 273rd time I have heard him say something to that effect. Don't stop now Peter. We are enjoying your collective spirit.

    Wow, hope he brings it! Don't "they" say that the 274th time is the charm?

    I have a Michael A. Smith print (to which Peter alerted me of the sale - of course) and 4 Mark Citret prints. I'll try and remember to bring those along.

    I'm hoping to be there as well. For those who haven't been to the Days Inn (formerly Quality Inn), or Musketeers Bar and Grill, they are both on a map on a summary map on a NEOH APUG page that I have going: https://sites.google.com/site/neohapug/home/places

    I'd love to see the Citret prints in person, as well as the Atget, Watkins, and others.

    Try very hard to remember. I for one will want to send you back for those beauties if you do forget.

    Thanks many times over for the book of maps you have built and updated. Thanks also for the reminder and discount coupon for this event.

    Dale,
    do you still have the 90mm f5.6 Topcor Lens? I am really want to get a 90mm with a 5.6 aperture and this is the only model ( I believe ) that uses 77mm filters.

    If so, would you mind bringing it with you? I'd love to check one out in person.

    Shawn

    You do the heavy 'hospitality' lifting on these events, John, so I'm more than glad to help out where I can.

    Yes at the Musketeers at 12:00. In case anyone from out of town can't make it to the swapmeet, they can plan on finding us all at the Musketeers.

    Shawn,
    Yes, I'll bring the 90 Topcor. Its on the camera now and I'd be glad to show it to you. I can confirm that it does take 77mm filters. Igor has one for $475. If you let him know, he will bring it to the swap meet.

    The Dolly blessing has been obtained. In fact she is looking forward to seeing the prints.

    Wow, I just checked here two days ago and didn't see anything. I was just going to email John. But there has been a flurry of activity.

    I 'll definitely be there on Sunday, and stay for lunch and print sharing. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    Glad you are coming Jeff. I finally developed that print we took together at the Coast Guard station. I'll show you the work print. It needs much more to finish. How is you darkroom coming?

    Well, looks like we're supposed to get 2-4 inches of snow here tomorrow - Brecksville forcast (at NOAA) shows less although some tonight. I'm going to try and make it but will have to play it by ear. Fingers crossed.

    I'm going to miss today as well. Sorry to miss seeing everyone, but there's nothing I need from the camera show, and I'm home alone for the entire day. So rather than fighting more winter and driving a couple of hours in the ice and snow, I'll be at home taking care of some chores uninterrupted (like computer reorganizing and hard drive clean up and maintenance, cleaning up the study and darkroom) and listening to music.

    Hope to see folks soon, perhaps at the Six States Photo Show.

    Lee

    Those that missed out missed seeing some excellent control of Ilford Warmtone paper by Shawn, some more fantastic 1860s photographs, and John's latest subject matter perfectly suited to 7x17. I also showed my prints, which easily eclipsed Brett Weston's work (inside joke, you had to be there :smile: ).
