    I'm still sorting through the list and getting the portfolio ready for the next round, and I'm hoping to send it on its way in about a week or two. Sorry it's taking so long, but the day job has had to take precedence lately.

    For those in the New York area who would like to take a look at the portfolio, I'd like to have a gathering at my place Sunday, Feb 19, 2006. We can also look through my collection of APUG postcards and prints from the exchanges, and if anyone else wants to bring some prints to pass around or prints that they've gotten through the APUG exchanges, that would be cool too. Art Liem and I have tossed around the idea of trying out some big Polaroid transfers, so if Art can make it, maybe we can do that too.

    If you're interested, PM me, and I'll give you directions. I live uptown in Manhattan near Columbia University.

    Fantastic! I can't wait to see it. I'll bring some wine.

    Just another reminder for New York area types who didn't catch this thread the first time around.

    It looks like Art can't make it, so maybe we'll hold off on the Polaroids until next time around, but there will still be lots of prints to see, from the Traveling Portfolio and other abovementioned exchanges, and I also just received a fine print from Kevin Saitta, so that will be here too.

    Seems I left the time out of the original post. I've been telling people we could meet around 12:00 noon.

    Okay, looks like we're on for tomorrow. There should be around 6-8 people dropping by as of this morning. If anyone else would like to jump in, send me a PM, and I'll give you directions.

    Sunny weather predicted, if anyone wants to do some shooting in the neighborhood after looking at prints. We've got Grant's Tomb, Riverside Church, Riverside Park, and the Riverside Dr. Viaduct all in the immediate vicinity. I'm a fan of area under the Viaduct myself.

    I am open to going out shooting in the neighborhood if the weather holds up - the viaduct sounds especially interesting!

    Are you bringing your 8x10? This should be fun... except that it's started snowing here :sad:, something that was not in the forecast.:mad: Hope it stops soon.

    It snowed briefly here, but the sun is out, and the weather report is promising for tomorrow.

    Wish I was there. It's freezing here in Toronto. Plus I just watched Patsy Quinn and Wayne Betsky take our Canadian men's hockey team to a loss - against the Swiss of all teams! :-(

    David, I saw those images in your website and I liked the first one (posted here) the most.

    Yes, thankfully the weather has changed for the better now.:smile:

    Sanjay,

    I hate to disappoint you, but mine is a 4X5. I am sure there will be some 8X10 there.

    Alex, I was reading the comments here yesterday and thought that your 'new' camera was an 8x10. Even 4x5 is way bigger than 35mm which is what I will be bringing.:tongue: See you there.

    I was planning to shoot my new-to-me 6x9 Technika (still haven't had the lenses cammed yet, so I'll be shooting view camera style), if we head down to the viaduct, but I've got a few bigger ones around, if you want to experiment.

    Thanks everyone for coming by.

    Someone left an orange fleece vest at my place--maybe Sanjay or Alex, I think. PM me, and if it's too inconvenient to come by and pick it up, I can mail it to you.

    Yes, thank you indeed! It was a great pleasure to share the excellent work of so many who contribute to the print and post card exchanges and see the fine photographs of those who showed up today as well. And the wine and nova and cheese and pistachios and bagels were wonderful. (The view aint half bad either!!). A wonderful day; thanks again, David.

    Thank you David, you are a great host.

    I loved looking at all the prints and enjoyed the time spent with everyone. I also learnt quite a few things. I missed the last photo outing to AP, but I will be looking forward to one this year.

    Again, another good gathering. Yeah, it was me who left my vest there (on purpose), just give me an excuse to go back and look at those beautiful prints again. :smile:

    Thanks to everyone, I learned a great deal of everything.
