    Photostock 2012
    Harbor Springs/Good Hart/Cross Village, Michigan
    June 21- 24


    I just got a call from the Birchwood Inn and they once again communicated how pleased they were with our group this year and how much they liked hosting us. So much so that they were giving us preferential treatment over a wedding reception and party, letting us choose our dates first.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I stuck with the solstice and am officially announcing the dates so that there is ample time to plan your schedule next summer with the hopes you can join us. It was a really great time this year and we'll see if we can continue the good times.

    The website is not active yet, but the URL is set and I will announce the opening of registrations at a later date.

    www.photostock2012.com

    I hope you'll be able to join us!!

    Well you can't have it, Dan! :smile:

    Actually it is not offering it for sale. It is simply parked there for the time-being.

    Circus? I hope the Carnies make an appearance.
    I plan to do more than just show up once or twice this time. Good work, Bill.

    I'll be there too. I'm dying because I couldn't work it out to make this year's trip to Iceland with Bill, I think this will be the mother of photo trips..

    I've been getting the website together for Photostock 2012 and was looking at the Flickr Group for some inspiration. There is some powerful stuff there! I have to say that from the perspective of an oncoming winter, it is already making me long for summer. I'm hoping that those of you that have uploaded photographs won't mind me using a few in the updated website? I'll ask each of you as I choose, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be snatching a few if no one objects.

    I also wanted to update the Photostock Gallery that I started a few years ago. If you have anything you'd like to submit, please add it to the Flickr Group. If you're not already a member of the group, just send through a request and you'll be in.

    I'm going to make an effort to print up a few more negs from this year's Photostock during the Holiday... Would be fun to get one or two into the P-stock gallery. Some really great looking work there from everybody!
