    I'm thinking of starting a loosely-organized photo meetup for the South Bay -- a n ongoing excuse for people to get together and talk about their work etc. Not a camera club per se, no affiliations or contests or any of that. Hopefully something more like "Boston Street" or similar. My initial thought is to poll folks from a few different groups on the net: APUG obviously, the B&W printing list, Contax G, and the blogging community. To see what emerges from the process. Meeting place probably at a local coffeehouse or if worse comes to worst my teensy home in Santa Clara.

    Anyone interested, PM me, email or post here... more as I figure it out!

    Sounds like (potential) fun. I'm always ready for an extra cup of coffee. :cool:

    Count me in, too. Though I'm technically mid-peninsula.

    C'mon, You guys gotta have a judge at each meeting to hand out little ribbons for the best use of "leading lines" and "the rule of thirds". :wink:

    Set Up Through Meetup.Com

    I've set up a listing on MeetUp.Com

    Photography Made Difficult

    The exact date and time are amenable to change of course -- but better to just move ahead than try to second-guess everyone. Opinions on both time and date most welcome, esp. on the meetup listing (here too).
