Is there any interest in the bridges in the flats of Cleveland?

From my standpoint, this sounds great. Last fall I had been gradually extending my exploration from the Towpath then to the Cuyahoga, and up to the Steelmills. Having some companionship on these trecks to this area would be nice. To be more mobile and to avoid the darkcloth, I was shooting my Horseman handheld, using the rangefinder to focus.

John, congradulations on the opening. I hope to see it.

I have done it with a group of five LFs. It is definitely an area where you want to be together and have at least one set of eyes out in the open at all times. The bridges, angles, details are great and worth the organization. Again, it doesn’t have to be this time. I am just trying to get an interest reading. I enjoy the gathering, the people, the ideas, what ever we do.

Thanks Dale. Hope to see who ever can make the opening.

We're planning on coming, but it looks like it will just be for the day Saturday. We've got a wedding on Sunday (yawn - open bar though at least ...) What time do the festivities start?

Will you be bringing your Chamonix 4x5? I'm interested in how the fit-and-finish compares to the Shen Hao.

Other than Dale's comment there doesn't seem to be much interest in the bridges and the flats. We can do that another time, either Dale and I or as a group. Lets go back to the 9:00 AM Saturday coffee and rolls if I can talk Dolly into the rolls part.

leaves, wind, rain......... anybody else camping that weekend?

No comments on this either. Dorothy what would you like? Are you concerned about being alone down by the fire area, coyotes, bears, alligators, and rabid raccoons? We could have you set up closer to the house. Or are you concerned about being outside?

I don't mind being alone...... I've done it before although I've never encountered an alligator ;) I'm open to just about anything including bridges, the flats, architecture, Blue Hen Falls and even gallery shows. I've seen some pretty neat images taken under bridges by the water of the pillars or even 'pilings'. I am very into harbors and docks. Anything Maritime.

I suppose it depends alot on the weather too. I don't have any pictures to bring this time. Is anyone doing sunrise anywhere? The wetlands were interesting too. Especially all that green stuff.

As always, my biggest concern is which camera(s) to bring, and which film/lenses etc.

Today I was offered the shell of an 8x10 camera! Should I grab it?

Do we have a head count yet? Is anyone else planning on spending the night? (just curious)

I have a leather biker jacket and a jean jacket with lots of Harley patches on it if you guys are chicken :o

One of our "assigne subjects" for camera club is "on the street" & "repeating patterns" if you have any ideas.

We're up for shooting where ever the group decides.

Please just keep the thread updated! I hate to miss an opportunity, even though my attendance is dubious.

Then, there's that whole "feelin' guilty 'cause I don't have any color 120 film stocked in the height of Autumn" thing. I can remedy that! "Hello, Freestyle"

The next thing as Dorothy asked is, who in the group is coming? I will tell Dolly she needs to make rolls for 50, but she may she through that…….

When we know who is coming and what the weather & trees look like we can pick a project. I hope to see the photo exhibit at Cleveland Museum of Art this week, "France at the dawn of photography", to be able to recommend that if it is raining. That goes on until January 24th, so we can catch that next time if the shooting is good next weekend.

So, the usual question, who is coming?

Unable to commit right now. Dad's going through some more health issues... Obviously that comes first. Of course if there is any free time I'd love to see you all and will make every effort to do so. Only an hourish away so don't be surprised if I show up at some point. I'll let you know, John.

I'm dying to see some of these beautiful prints Peter has been posting in the galleries! And of course anything the rest of you have been working on and keeping to yourselves.

I expect to be there. I'll likely be camping over Sat night. Is anyone arriving Fri evening? If there are others arriving Fri evening, I'd probably camp over Friday night as well so I can enjoy the company.

I'd rather do fall colors than the bridges, mainly because I have a quantity of PKM and PKR to shoot before K14 processing goes away, and something has come up to prevent my shooting during the day for the next week. Museums are fine if the weather doesn't work for shooting.

I'm thinking about Friday eve & Sat eve. I have to get back to you on that, but it's more probably than not. I'll try to muster up a batch of enthusiasm John!

Shawn, I'm sorry about your dad. Hope all is well.

I just scheduled to take Friday afternoon through Sunday off so I'll plan on staying Fri & Sat night. And since it gets darker sooner, I'll probably leave home earlier on Friday night so I don't get lost in the dark. lol!

Dorothy,

That is great. It read above like Lee might join you. Here is the long term weather forecast. Bring warmies. I mowed before the big rains Friday. I will try to get it again this week so you are not in the jungle.

Fri, Oct 9, 40% Showers, high 55°, low 43°
Sat, Oct 10, 20% precip, Partly Cloudy, high 53°, low 40°
Sun, Oct 11, 30% Few Showers, high 51°, low 40°

Any chance Jeff & Eva might come in Friday night and camp instead of Sat?

Shawn take good care of your Dad. We had a terrible experience today. Six of us and ten dogs went on a hiking hounds walk around Boston Run. That is across the street from Happy Days Lodge on Rt. 303. A close friend, a 76 year old retired dentist was along. He had a heart attack on the steep hill, a hill he had hiked many times before. We called 911. The younger ones just stood there. I had to race as fast as a 70 year old with two dogs can go to meet the EMT at the parking lot, a mile of steep hills away, and direct them to him in a Bob Cat. Thirty minutes after he was down they had given him 20 minutes of CPR, oxygen, air bagging, and finally a defibulator. We lost him, a good friend. I’m pretty broken up about it, so be careful this weekend, PLEASE.

I'm so sorry to hear that John. A tragedy indeed.
