A couple of us are beginning planning a Littleton Shoot (downtown Littleton and the surrounding area) and a pub cool-down over the next couple of weeks. Anybody interested, please join!

So, let's hear when you all are available. I know mathomas is out of pocket this weekend (7/24-7/25) and I am unavailable next weekend - camping (7/31-8/1), so either a weekday next week or the following week or weekend (8/7-8/8).

Wow....I read "Littleton" and "Shoot"...and my heart just kinda froze for a moment. You might want to re-think your wording a bit.

Well, it happened at Columbine, which yes, is in Littleton, but that's never how it is referenced. I live very close, lived through the insanity and it isn't an issue for me. So, let's not worry about that.

Hey Mike, Count me in anytime except Aug. 13-20th. other than that I can make arrangements for any time Especially if there will be a "pub cool down!!!" week end or week days are all fine for me also.
Will this be a film only people event and we can stone any digi's that show up!??! oops! I digress,,,,,, I guess pics are pics (gag).
Looking forward to meeting/making some more new friends!

I'm on call and don't have a schedule but if I'm able I'll come down from Loveland. I've never wandered Littleton but as Douglas said, if there's a pub involved I'm in!

Okay, how's a weekday, such as Wednesday evening (either July 28 or August 4) for everybody? Mike (mathomas), do you have a favorite pub down there?

Firstly, thanks Mike (toro_mike) for starting up this thread.

I can make weekday get-togethers as long as I know they're coming, so I'm in for Wednesday, if others are. I'm also available for the August 4 date, so far as I know.

Warning: downtown Littleton might die in the evening. Haven't been at night in a while. I usually shoot there in the morning on days off.

Regarding gear: I'm personally not a fan of rules. I'm just going to be sure that at least one of the cameras I bring takes film. :)

Regarding pubs: I'm pretty ignorant of the quality of the pubs, but I know there are at least three of them.

Here's a slideshow of some photos I've taken (on film) in downtown Littleton:

Love the shots Mike, very well done!

I'm in for this Wednesday night as well - say around 6:30PM? We could meet at the Littleton Lightrail station south of Littleton Blvd at S Prince St and W Alamo Ave or the parking lot north of Littleton Blvd near Ned Kelly's Irish Pub on S Rio Grande St.

Looking forward to this a lot! I say bring whatever gear you want! I'll bring film camera(s) personally :)

Ok,,,,,,,,,Uhm, that was quick! I certainly can make arrangements if this works for everyone else.

I'm in. Should be fun. Maybe we can make Ned Kelly's the end-of-shooting landing spot, and thus can meet in/near the RTD parking lot behind it (the 2nd one you mentioned). I'll try to park as close to Littleton Blvd as possible.

Just an incidental, Littleton CO. is a sister city for my home town of Bega. A bit far for me to go, have a good time anyway!

Really? That's very interesting, I'll have to look that up. Maybe you could get some folks out and do a shoot as well soon? Might be interesting to share shots.

History of the sister cities... (http://www.begalittleton.org/id11.html) Ah Google, take a look at that link if you want to know more. Very interesting. Thanks for mentioning this :)

Hey Mike, sorry to say I will not be able to make it Wednesday and I am not happy about it but my wife reminded me that we already have plans. PLEASE! can we sometime in the near future try another get together or even a mini get-together for pics & beer? I am a brewery hound so we can plan something like a warehouse shoot and brewery hop downtown? or whatever anybody else might think of??

Are we talking Wed. the 28th? If so then I'm a maybe...which is about as sure as things get with my "schedule".

I've been thinking of Wed the 28th in my posts. I have a new (used) camera that needs to be shot, so I'll be down there regardless. Hope you can make it Ed, and sorry you can't Douglas. I have a feeling there may be more than one of these, so I wouldn't worry too much about missing.

Just to make sure we're on tomorrow, let's have a roll call...

Just saw this post. I was actually figuring on being in that area already, since I use Karma Bar as my satellite office. ;) I'll try to swing by.

Incidentally, my project "The Regulars" was shot at at Olde Towne Tavern right there at Littleton Blvd and Prince St.
