Laura and I joined eight other talented photographers from the area to get together to talk shop, have lunch, take some photos of each other, learn new techniques and just generally get to know some new photographers. We had a lot of fun getting to know everyone and are looking forward to a future meet-up. I didn’t take a lot of photos but here are a few that I did (click the photos to enlarge). I’ll get Laura to put up some as well. Thanks everyone for the great time!
Photos of people, or anything that moves just elude me. Those are all well done!
I really need to stop sticking my tongue out at the camera–but it did give me a great laugh today. 🙂
Great job on the rest of the shots! It makes me bummed I missed the rest of the day… 🙁
It was great to meet you both!
Thanks Dave and Christina.
Christina, it was great getting to know you. There was talk of having a mid season get together as well so it would be fun to do it again. I can’t really ever pass up chances to talk shop and drink beer.
Dave, does anyone related to you still live out on Square Lake? Laura and I rode our bikes from Mahtomedi out to Marine and back on Sunday and the route we took back had us climbing up past the Palmer’s old house and Tommy D’s folks place.
Good stuff, Scott! It was nice meeting you and Laura. You two are really fun & talented, keep up the good work!
Yup. 🙂 My dad’s place is immediately west of the old Palmer residence, ending at the top of the gentle hill at the apex of the corner by the apple trees. Do Tom’s folks still live in the same place? Sounds like a fantastic ride – Riding in the city is irritates me – with the stopping and starting.
Yep Tom’s folks still live there. I was out there last year as we photographed his younger sister’s wedding. Riding out in the “country” is a nice change. We went with a group of riders and our ride leader really had a great route that had us going all over the place. Since I spent a lot time working in that area of the county (used to mow the sides of the roads on a tractor for the public works department in high school) it was fun to ride by a lot of places where I used to stop for lunch 🙂
Wicked good times. I must have missed this the first time it came around. Keep having fun, I think your sense of fun comes through in your images…. well, the fact that your wicked talented probably helps too. 😉
What blog software is this – I’m just starting mine and I’m looking for something good.
