My pendulous, middle aged beer gut is showing; does that count?
As to the festival, there will be lot of photography there. From a quick glance at some of the websites, I'm not sure that there will be much to justify burning the gasoline it will take to get there.
I do like to go to these things occasionally to try to get a feel for how likely it would be that I would actually sell something at one of them. Maybe I'll hop on the metro and take a look.
Are you going down there?
I dunno- some of the photogs there don't seem TOO horridly cliched. Maybe even interesting one or two. I feel lucky these days if you get more than one who has something you'd even consider buying. Especially with the current trend to oversaturated oversharpened over-photoshopped work.
