This is getting better all the time. 10 AM it is.
First of many?
We're getting together tomorrow at 10 at the Belmont Hill School photo classroom, exit 58 from Rt 2 in Belmont MA. No forewarning necessary, come join us if you can for coffee, conversation, a sharing of prints, ideas, plans for a group show and general bull------g about life and the cost (and beauty) of silver. All welcome, follow the signs once on campus.
see ya in the am!!
OK, so it wasn't the biggest gathering we've seen in years. A show is planned for September 06 (open to all who can get there work here reasonably) and good conversation was had by all of us. To Gene, Bill, Suzanne, and Ed - a big thanks for coming up and chatting. It's really nice to put faces with names - and avatars.
Perhaps a shooting session next? I know Gene is up for it.
I would like to send work for your upcoming show if it is a go could you pm me the details. Shipping from Toronto is not such a problem and if you would like I could involve about 5-15 APUGers from this area and send the work in mass to you. We have some pretty good artists up here and if it is a small van packed with art next year I can arrange all of this.

Enjoyed meeting everyone, and especially enjoyed looking at some work! It really is very satisfying to see prints in person. Since we have til '06, we should be able to pull together a stellar show of film photographers! Thank you for hosting Whitey, and looking forward to more NE APUG get togethers.
New England as a concept...

I'm hopeful of building a local network of APUG types who might come together over a show.
Maybe a "Toronto in Boston" show all by itself?
What Suzanne said.
I had a great time, and thanks, Whitey, for organizing it.

Yes, me too!!
Great to see that those who attended are *REAL* people! - And to seeing un - "scanned and squeezed through the `net'" work!
Looking forward to an encore!!

OK... I'll admit it, I had a good time too!
Thanks Whitey for hosting the get together. I am hopeful that we can do this more often. As I said, the Valley Photo Center is also a good place to meet.
And yes, I am up for another photo outing, either at the Quabbin or to someone else's choice.
It was good to meet Ed, Bill and Suzanne.
Long live Ed "Big Daddy" Roth!!
