I've been told I have to be at rehearsal from 10 am to 10 pm on Saturday, so I cannot attend :-( Hopefully I can make the May event!

Added bonus: The Ontario Spring Water Sake Company opens this Friday at the Distillery. Real junmai sake finally comes to TO. Hoping for some samples... Kampai!

Kampai indeed! I love junmai o-sake! Should be fun.

Saturday Afternoon we're looking at Mainly Sunny Conditions with 15C, and a 0% chance of precipitation.

Break out that slow film! I know that a couple rolls of Velvia (RVP) will be coming along! Maybe some nice 100 speed b/w, and some Ektar 100 as well.

Final Camera list
Nikon F3
Polaroid Auto 240 (with some Polaroid 664)

I'm there at one, don't think I'll be staying all afternoon as I have a second event to catch up to at some point.

Final camera list: Rolleiflex, Canon F-1n with 35 f2 and 100 f2.8 and a variety of film.

Good weather and shooting today! Nice to see Bill, Mihai, and Mike again, as well as meet Alex, Harry, CGW, and others for the first time. My negatives are hanging to dry and looks like some good possibilities for prints over the next couple of days.

Great to finally meet all of you and thank you for joining in! Made my weekend!

Great to meet and shoot, the weather cooperated. Oh and the sake was quite nice too!

Haven't developed yet though... perhaps now.

I had a very nice time shooting. So nice that the spring rains that just don't seem to ever stop this year actually stopped for a whole day for our event.

The little hello session at the beginning of the shoot was neat. At least everyone did not stand around comparing looks at each others gear all afternoon.

Putting a face to the screen names and actially verbally conversing was fun as well.

The films exposed are now on the 'waiting to be proecessed' shelf in the darkroom.

Now I am back to ongoing home renovations. Perhaps I will process the negatives while I wait for a coat of paint to dry sometime this week.

Just the Polaroids for now!

Funny shot of the APUG TO/FPP chorus line. That's me in the right foreground with the tripod. Don't recall signing a model release for Nancy!

And here we go, last of the shots uploaded and the set is complete. Just in time for the Hamilton Meetup!


We also got a good review on the May 15th Film Photography Podcast complete with a plug for APUG.

It took me a long time to develop the only film I shot at this meet-up. I'm not happy with the exposure, I would actually say that I screwed up but here it goes:
