Looking forward to seeing everyone and some new work. As John mentioned, we made a trip to the "flats". I've been down a couple of times, and plan on continuing to work down there with the 8x10. As a Cleveland area resident, I'm a little embarrassed to admit I haven't really explored this part of the city. There's lots of change/construction going on down there, and I'm personally challenging myself to find some visual calm in a sensory overload of subjects. Here's a link for those with facebook to a few of my first efforts (work prints). I'd be happy to accompany anyone who wants to work there.
Frank and I went to the flats and I made at least four good photographs in a half hour. the views of the bridges are amazing, tons of stuff there...Evan

I may have to go to my boyfriend's art opening in Pittsburgh at the Silver Eye. They're having a competition for the Assoc Artists of Pittsburgh area. If not, I'll see what I can do.
Thanks John for the heads up :)
Congratulations to your boyfriend.
I hope it is a different date so you will be able to join us.
Keep in touch.
John & Dolly
I will, but not for this one. We are traveling the very next week and I must work to get things done around the shop.

I am excited as well. We will be there!
I have been busy taking photos with the handheld cameras, just trying to get better at capturing people at parties, ..
Also went to the Aperture photo walk last weekend - it was fun, met a lot of younger film shooters, which is good. Very few had heard of APUG. Also helped my friends at Labwork obtain a bit more Internet presence. In addition to making a facebook page for them, I helped them become an advertiser on APUG.
I know this upcoming gathering is busy, but I am always up for going to the flats at other times.
See you soon.
We just missed an opportunity to go together to the flats and shoot. Dolly and I went this morning (Thursday). A place to avoid on weekdays is the base of the new bridge paralleling the Rt. 71 bridge, out of down town, crossing the river toward the airport. We were escorted away from the base by a lady in yellow vest and hard hat who is the “public relations person” for the project or construction site. She wanted to protect us from the inherent dangers. Fortunately she does not do that on weekends. We went on from there to spots where no one present seemed to care.
Dolly sketches about as fast as I take 7x17 pictures. It is a slow but happy process.
