I also wanted to say that it was great to meet all the local Chicagoland photogs and view some really terrific images.
Thanks to Mike A. for bringing out his 11 x 14 "monster -cam" (although I walked away with a case of film size envy, and as the only one in attendance that hasn't shot LF, I think I may have caught the bug to shoot bigger....now, where is that piggy bank....).
Thanks to Richard Wasserman for hosting and providing a great spread for lunch.
