    How's it going guys? Whatcha been taking pictures of? Just got some ND filters and after readnig for months on how to use them, finally got the chance to put it to practice. Went to a local lake and caught water going over the spillway. Think I hit it pretty well right on the mark. Some pics in my gallery. How about you?

    Just got home from the Intro to Platinum class at CFAAHP in New York. Terrific class - I can't wait to get back in my darkroom and do it again. I'm also waiting on new lensboards for the 8x10 so I can use my array of lenses. I'll be in the Florida Keys this weekend, doing some snorkelling and some fishing, so I'll have my underwater rig with me and shooting some 35mm color print film. We're aiming for a weekend get-together maybe 1st or 2nd weekend in June. Theory has it going up to Philly to take in Eastern State Penitentiary and maybe the old waterworks on the Schuykill river behind the Art Museum.

    I'm committed on Sunday, June 4th all day. So if it's the first weekend, make it Saturday.

    It's definitely a possibility. Keep us up on details.

    At last count I tallied 3 threads concerning a Mid Atlantic outing, namely: "Middy Meeting", "Mid Atlantic Apug Group" and "Quiet Out There".

    This is ridiculous. May we please consolidate these into one thread?

    I've been making the best photographs I've ever done. Can't wait to shoot more. Where are we going?

    I'm going to try to organize an outing to Eastern State Penitentiary and maybe the old waterworks on the Schuykill river behind the Art Museum in Philadelphia. Depends on the load at work and how much time I can find.


    Regards,
    Bill

    Bill- if you need any help with the organizing, let me know. I've shot at Eastern State before, so I know some of the logistics.

    As an aside, how would folks feel about taking a day off work and doing a shoot mid-week? I know it is far more conducive to shooting at Eastern State mid-week, as the volume of people there is much lower.

    For some more info on Eastern State, here is their website...

    Im up for the mid-week thing. I have been to Eastern State Penn, and put the seed into Bill's head about waterworks. There's also a place off of the towpath/forbidden drive that we should check out.

    I'm game for a weekday, but give me some lead time. It has to be arranged.

    I wouldn't be able to take off from work so I won't be able to make a mid-week shoot.
