I've made it home after a very long trip back via Shanghai and Singapore. Took a couple of days and was so happy to see the family again after being away a month. Lots of work now ahead and planning for the next trip in 2009, which will include Florence, Venice and Vienna, wonderful backdrops for more romantic portraits.
It was a real pleasure to meet you all!! You realise it's your turn now to come and visit here for the next gathering - in Australia.
See you Down Under!!
It was ME. Please send it to me. (Don't ask.)

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points
system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
Great stuff Marc, thank you!
Marc: thank you very much for sharing your photos with us. As I watched the slide show with my morning coffee I was transported back a week to a very enriching time.
Marc: great stuff, thanks

Thanks Marc! I now realized I missed a great evening when Nicole showed her prints, and JAmie did his Cirkit presentation! I was so wiped after the 10 hour ride over from MN and had to crash. We hope to see you at the Northern MN Fall gathering in September. Not long to go now!
Only 51 more weeks to go and counting for the next Michigan gig. :rolleyes: The time flew by last week. I'm jonesin' already.
I managed to score an absolutely exquisite print from Matthew Blais this year in trade for a plate I shot of him Sunday just before the last of us left. The year before, I coerced Daniel Lin into the same sort of deal. And, I've managed to pick up a few of Bill's prints over the past couple years as well, so my collection is growing as a result of these annual gatherings.
There were a lot of marvelous images displayed at the portfolio show & tells over the week, and I want more, more, more. So, I'd like to propose next year everyone participating bring at least one print or plate to do a blind swap, and perhaps a few extra to trade openly with folks.
