My feeling is that it is a unique feature of APUG that we meet online yet we have a natural need to show our analogue, non-digitised prints face-to-face in those smaller, geographically implied circles. I had been very stimulated by this aspect of APUG and to my mind it makes it unique on the web, at least as far as my interests go.
At the spring meeting this group gave me superb feedback on my printing which had influenced, in the best possible way, the photographs I brought last week. This time I got feedback about my mounting and presentation, which would be quite impossible to do just online.
I hope that our meetings continue and perhaps become even a bit more frequent as long as the interest is there and the logistics allow.
See you some time, in person, if you wish. You would be very welcome, I am sure.
