I'm getting another photo meetup together for September, this time to the Maryland Zoo. The meet is on Sunday September 16th at 10am. Everyone is invited and if you are planning to attend please let us know by replying here.

Admission is $15 a person ($10 for children 2-11) and anyone who meets us outside the gates at 10am can get 25% off general admission with my membership pass. I don't know of a limit of guests that I can claim for the discount, but we'll see. I may need to purchase all the tickets all together once we're there.. If you wish to take advantage of the discount please bring cash just in case.

Excellent, I've got four, maybe five more people from outside of Flickr so far. Should be a good group. Hope to see you all there!

Also if anyone is interested - The zoo is having a Breakfast with the Elephants from 8:30ish to 10am. Visit the Zoo website for more details but book soon, they go quick. A few of us may also roll over to Putty Hill Skate Land to see/photograph the Charm City Roller Girls. Doors open at 6pm.

Just a reminder, this is coming up on Sunday. The forecast is calling for a 30% chance of rain so be sure to bring rain gear for both you and your camera. Don't forget a cover for your camera bag - a trash bag will work fine. Its not a bad idea to always keep one hidden at the bottom of your bag, it won't take up much room.

Sorry you can't make it Hibi, maybe next time.

Weather update, sunny and cooler - high of 70. Dress warm. I look forward to meeting those of you I haven't met yet! (and those I've already had the pleasure to meet).

I tried but I got lost and ended up at the conservatory. I think I'm too stupid tor Flickr meetups.

The meet-up went well, I hear ya about the conservatory Side - they had construction going on. Had to follow the detours.

We had fourteen people, everyone had a good time (that I can tell!) and I was able to get everyone in at 25% off. I've seen some great images from the meet. My favorites of my Zoo images are here: flickr.com/photos/johnmillekerphotography/sets/7215760206... and my roller derby images are here: flickr.com/photos/johnmillekerphotography/sets/7215760206...

I'll post a few into the pool shortly.

The first few weeks of October will be crazy for me, I'm still hoping for a Renfest meet on October 7th. It won't be in stone and I probably won't know for sure if I can make it until the week before. So if you want to wander to the Renfest and can make that day - do it, they'll be celebrating Oktoberfest. But worst case scenario I won't be able to join you guys.. Sniff Sniff.
