Thanks, Suzanne, but I felt distinctly second class in that gathering. What fun it is to get a look at other photographer's work over a good cup of coffee now and then! You're right in pursuing the wet plate work - lots of room for your images to thrive in that medium. And Ruediger has made me want to do litho printing..., maybe in time for a few to be in my show?
Great seeing you all. More to come, I hope. Enjoy your travels, Ruediger.
I had a grand time. Let's make it a regular thing, we could rotate venues.
Ruediger, please stay safe in all that driving, and I hope you and your family have a great time.
Hey, I also enjoyed meeting up with you all. Yes time was flying. The images you shared with me were just gorgeous. What a great experience, now I learned something about wet plate collodion (is this spelled right) and also about photogravures - well, at least I know how these look like and I know two more faces for postcards I received.
So the rain came back after that hail storm. The only thing missing now is snow ;)
Thanks again ciao
There could be snow here; http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/ pretty much any day now. A mere 192 KM north of where we met.

It was great to meet you Ruediger, and when it comes to gorgeous images, don't forget your lith prints. I have a feeling sure you will find many future postcard exchange subjects in your travels.
I guess no one told you (or told us) that New England has a new 'fifth' season this year - we have apparently swapped mud season for Monsoon season :p
It was also very good to meet Whitey and Barry, and see Suzanne again. I'm going to have to start making these NE APUG get togethers a bit more often!
Next time visit the Bay area. It would be nice to meet you and show you some of my home turf. Of course I could have done that in Nashua too seeing as I lived in Mass for 9 years.
How close are you to Aachen? Might be a trip or two there this fall.
