Unfortunately we haven't seen or heard from gbroadbridge since May. Hope he's OK. That said, we need someone to organize this place, put up stickies and schedules, and manage all the cameras traveling about. I have a few suggestions:

Sile
K_Jupiter aka Tim
Sanjay Sen
Others? FilmSprocket?

You guys want the job? You'll have to be in it for the long haul though - we're talking years. Hmmm ... maybe we should take a vote .... dunno really.

Regards, Art (I'm not going to do it, so don't ask ... :D)

I think that Tim is doing a great job with 'Let's Shoot 1 Camera-Part 5'. Maybe he can continue on with this section of the APUG. Art would also be (and has been) great at this but he's a busy dude and he already indicated his decision.

For the record, I just want to be a member and not run anything for now. I recently ended my camera club life of about 12 years, 2 of which were as a VP and 6 as prez. I don't know how many of those years also included being the program director. At least for the clubs I was a member of, digital folks made camera club life a real pain in the ass starting around 2001/2002. Presently, APUG is my only photo group and I'm enjoying the freedom of not running something. Perhaps I'll be fully recovered in the near future and, then, be more willing to help out for things like this. :)

Hope that's not too much information, but I just had to let a little of that out. Sorry.

Also, I apologize for my "Pressed Chicken" recipe in part 4 or 5. :D

That said, if he needs a hand I've one available :)

This makes me so proud. The little grasshopper has strong mojo. Tim it is then. A fine selection. The force, strong it is within him. Ummm .... Tim?

800 years will it take for the cameras to return:p

Well, whomever takes over the management of this site, I have a couple ideas to offer to try and make it more than just a "pass the camera" exercise.

Hi y'all...

Let me think for a day or two. I am of course open to suggestions from all, especially George. You know I think this whole process should be more than "a pass the camera thing". I like how we all bond with the process.

Sile would be a good second in command. I like her energy, even one handed.

As for years, I have been here for three years now I think, maybe more. I ain't going anywhere. I have been on some lists for over 8 years, mostly active participation. I find a place, I like it, I stay there.

As for returning cameras, Only Camera 1A or is it Camera 1B is out in the wilderness with little chance of return...

And of course, not to step on anyones toes, Sanjay Sen, you interested?

That said, I'll let you know by the weeks end.

You are nowhere near as sorry as the pressed chicken.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for asking, but I think you would make a better candidate because I feel you are much more patient than I can be! :D And this will need a lot of patience!

Good luck to you, should you choose to accept this. And of course you will have my full cooperation if that is necessary.


Best wishes,
Sanjay

tim,

Looks like you're "it". Congrats (or commisserations)!

One suggestion is perhaps trying a thematic approach to a Round. Sort of like combining the MSA approach to the "pass the camera".

I know that in both rounds I've participated in - by the time I got the camera I felt so pressured to pass it along - that I spent virtually no time thinking about what to shoot.

If you pick a "theme" ahead of time - then each of us can think about what we'll shoot while waiting for our "turn" behind the lens.

Delighted to be second in command Tim .. Do I get to wear a hat and cape? :D
Congrats and well done for stepping into the breach.

You get to carry MY hat and cape. How cool is that?

I will do it, I just need a bit more advice from Art and of course the secret passwords to get things done.

I like the theory of themed cameras, a personal interpritation of a common idea.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We are not ready for Round 6 I don't think. Let's get Round 4 pretty close to finished.

Regards, Art.
