To those of you who are going, Matt (imageme) and myself are definitely heading over this afternoon. Hope you all have fun and get some great shots.


Yeah, I'm going to be headin' out soon. Got all must stuff together...


Glad you made it Ken - and glad you caught some of the fresnel starburst effect. I came away with the fog shots this year - but it was still fun and I managed to run into BGale and her party :)
