    At last I've got round to sorting out a couple of shots I made at the first meet in the Lake District. Hope you all enjoy seeing the a few faces behind some of the posts on APUG and I look forward to doing the whole thing again in October 2005.

    Those in the picture are from left to right Dave Miller, Bob F, Frank Beaney and Leon Taylor making a point as ever? Probably asking who'se round is it judging from the state of the glasses on the bar. Only kidding Leon, looking forward to seeing you in September.

    Please note this photograph is a digital exposure so no flame wars please.

    There are even two Whitey's on APUG. Who'd a thunk it?

    Very impressive Les. Did you have to take your camera to Boots to get the picture printed?

    Whoops... my "lens pointed in your direction" alarm must have been turned off at the time (either that or there wasn't room under the table for me to dive)...

    So Les, what film was that you were using again? I seem to have forgotten :wink: ....


    Cheers, Bob.

    Well, I notice that all of them seemed to have empty, or almost empty, beer glasses in front of them.... I wonder, did anyone actually take photographs? :D

    Must've been a fast shutter then...

    (Oh, and thanks for showing everyone why I usually stand behind the camera! :smile: )

    Les, do we have to wait another 6 months to see the rest of the gathering?
