    Everyone is welcome to join me next Saturday or Sunday - depending on the weather -; as I intend I to make large format photographs in the Mayaychuk section of Philadelphia. This afternoon I was there and with the late day light, it was really something impressive.

    For those of you who are not familiar with Mayachuk, it is an old section of Philadelphia that is something like Mt. Washington section in Pittsburgh; straight up and straigt down. Unfortuabley, Mayaychuk is undergoing redevleopment and will shortly lose its ethic old working class charm.

    Please e-mail me if you would like to meet for lunch or brucnch, as I would like to be set up to catch the afternnon light. Parking is very tough and the walking is not easy, but the area is safe. In any event, it is free and I do not think anyone will be disappointed.

    Regards,

    Robert,

    Wish I could have been there. Hope you had a good time and you got some great images. See you in Toronto.

    Hi Robert,
    Unfortunately, I am not available next weekend, but would be interested in future get togethers.
    I may be putting together a day photo trip in Hunterdon County. It would take place at the Prallsville Mills complex in Stockton, not too far from New Hope, PA. I will keep you informed.
