Hello friends and photogs. It has been suggested that our next meetup (which is sorely needed, as we haven't had one in months) be held at the Buffalo Flickr Photo Exhibition Opening Reception at Betty's Restaurant on Virginia, in the humble city of Buffalo.

I concur, as I think many of you will. It's a little celebration of just a few of our wonderful photographers on here, so let's all share in the revelry and get reacquainted, shall we?

Is it your first time to a meetup? Have you been itching to attend but not sure what to expect? Are you shy or just plain scared to go some place where you know no one? Fear not.

This photo exhibition will be the perfect ice-breaker, and should you by some chance find any of us disagreeable, simply pretend you aren't on Flickr and just happened to stumble upon the reception :) We'll never know the difference :)

Details:

June 30th from 6PM - 9PM
Betty's Restaurant
www.bettysbuffalo.com/index.html
370 Virginia Street
www.bettysbuffalo.com/location.html

It should be a lovely event and perfect to end the month with.

See you there :)

I think James and I can make it unless he's working.

Jim - Ya better show up!! LOL!!

Brenda, they chose these two from my "Drive-By Shootings" street photography series.

And although Calanan wil not be there to accept, he will also be honored by Sigma with their "Unpaid Salesman of the Year" award for his distinguised work in the area of the 30mm f1/1.4.
calanan 10 years ago
Yeah, I'm still waiting for my commission. Speaking of which, they just released a new 50mm f/1.4.

Very cool Calanan. I love those drive by ones :) I've also enjoyed your This is their place blog. Neat idea :)

hmmm.....$500 dollars... I have 10-20, 30, 70-300..............that 50 would fill in a void in my line up ;) I do really want an upgraded body though....
calanan 10 years ago
Thanks, Brenda, I have a few more profiles lines up, the project is really catching on now.

MJ, if the rumors are true I think my next body upgrade will be the Nikon D700 - basically a D300 with the D3's FF sensor. Killer.

I'd just be happy with more than a 3 point autofocus and adjustable EV bracketing
invincible books [deleted] 10 years ago
MJ - K20d or better yet K30d.

Calanan - That D700 looks PS'd to me.

You guys are too cool with all your letters and numbers flying around. It's like another language altogether ;)
MJ² 10 years ago
Yeah I know....but they both = $$$ =)

See whoever is going on Monday!

Cool article. But I added in my bio that both my grandfather and my dad were photographers...but they left that out. I hate editors! Okay. i'll stop grumbling. I'm wearing my new shoes for the opening :) Not that anyone cares...lol.
calanan 10 years ago
Good luck and have fun Monday, everyone. I wish I could be there.

Very neat story... and wow, what a nice surprise to see my photo there.

Don't worry Brenda, sometimes they leave things out or spell names wrong... they can never seem to get mine right, oh well.

See you guys (and Brenda's new shoes!) at the opening. How exciting. And Mike, I'm sure your spirit will be felt there :)

Me too (name) but that's ok, I should just start calling myself Lisa Marie and be done with it. At least people can spell that :D

Loved that photo they printed in Artvoice, Caroline, it's gorgeous!

Oh I feel better now :) I'm excited :)
MJ² 10 years ago
Maybe I'll Bic my head and try to do my best Calanan impersonation for everyone......?
admin
poetdiva PRO 10 years ago
Uhm. I don't think either one of you is replaceable :)
• Deeva • 10 years ago
Lisa Marie!! LOL... I thought that "Marie" might have been your middle name, but I get it now. Wow. Artvoice got my name wrong too. And if you noticed, they spelled "Flikr" wrong a few times – and they also got the name of the show wrong... "A Sense of Place"? Where did that one come from? But the photo there was also a nice surprise to see, I sure wasn't expecting that. At least neither publication messed that one up :)

Very unprofessional editing and proofreading (did they even do that?). They completely changed the meaning of what I'd written. There. I'm done whining about it. For the moment. Glad to know (or not really) I'm not alone in being misrepresented.

The photo is awesome Deeva :)

Okay. Back on track now. Come on out on Monday night everyone!
flyingdutchee 10 years ago
I'll be there with my shiny bald head to represent Mr. Calanan and our club of baldies ;) Too bad you can't make it Mike. I was hoping to see you there :/

Anyway, very fun and exciting to get the change to see you all again. It's gonna be nice to see your work framed on the wall instead of on the computer screen for a change. Will see you there on monday!

Did you drop off your art work yet?
smlevy24 PRO 10 years ago
If your dropping work off today at Betty's I'll be there. Drop off today is from 3PM to 4PM. If you don't drop your photos off today you can do it tomorrow between 9AM and 10AM.

Kathy will be hanging the show during the day Monday.

See you all Monday evening.
