Sounds great. Now as you very well know,The All-knowing Vince and myself will require our own table. If we are feeling up to it, we'll impart some pearls of wisdom upon the group, concerning matters of snapology. And just a reminder, do not speak to us, until we have acknowledged your presence. :-)

How about fountains?

We're in! I won't repeat Patrick's suggestion...

There's "keeping cool", which could include fountains, and it's summery.

I'll be there, natch... I'll second LC's contest suggestion of "keeping cool", it's a great summer theme and it's not too restrictive.
sparkling distribution [deleted] 13 years ago
Fountains are a great idea.
Here is a link to Portland's public fountains

Missed the last one, but this one might just work out...being right by my house, shouldn't be too difficult!
drwhimsy 13 years ago
I'll make this one - it's been too long!
I don't think I know anyone in this group because I'm just getting back into photography but I'm going to try and make it so I can meet some of the amazing photographers in PDX!
Elizabeth Archers 13 years ago
I'll be there too!

Just wanted to bump this to remind people that they still have plenty of time to get a "Keeping Cool" print made for tomorrow's meetup photo contest. You can get digital prints made almost instantaneously at any Walgreen's using the self-serve kiosk... so no excuses!

The past few contests have been a blast and I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on their chance at fame and fortune!!! ;-)
quietlightphoto 13 years ago
Fred Meyer's has photo kiosk's too.

How big is the entrance to this establishment? I'll need to be able to get my print inside. ;)
Hardlinejoe 13 years ago
I think I'll make this one.

If mine and Vince's ego's can fit, your print will fit fine...

imoon - it's not the size that counts! ; )
I'll be there, first time.

I'll be there, but only for the first hour. Have to finish a Blurb book; submissions for their contest are due on Thursday!
Wandering Images 13 years ago
Thank you *little pink* you're the first woman that's ever told me that. Oh wait, is this still a family site?;) I can't wait for that free beer. Yum!
quietlightphoto 13 years ago
Oh, two of us are getting free beer?

I lied, I won't be there. Out of work late and a crash on the St. John's Bridge means I have to take the long way around to get up there, which I need to do. Have fun y'all!
Roman on flickr 13 years ago
i lied too... i'm to lazy to drive across the town from gresham lol.

This table in the corner got a lot of attention.

Great meetup... we really packed that place in! Kudo's to A'ra for her winning "Keeping Cool" shot. As usual the photo contest was well represented with quality submissions and was a lot of fun.

FYI, next month is our annual outdoor picnic meetup where in the past frisbees are seen whizzin' every which way, group photo shoots spontaneously occur and we never have to rearrange furniture to fit everyone in. Check for a new thread announcing this meetup the first week in August! :D
nikonpdx 13 years ago
Another good time and some great images. Russ, will there be a photo contest for August? I think Jenna has thrown down the gauntlet for the subject being "my bare butt"
opposite stocking [deleted] 13 years ago
Are we looking for location suggestions?
admin
karmagroovy Posted 13 years ago. Edited by karmagroovy (admin) 13 years ago
No, not at this point, it's way too early considering that we are barely halfway through July. I just wanted to clue people in that the next meetup will be outside! :D I'll put up the August meetup topic in late July and we can take suggestions then.
Immortal Thrill-Seeker 13 years ago
Fun meetup! Great to see you all, have a few laughs, and check out some pics of scantily clad girls! Woo-hoo!
wizmo 13 years ago
So sorry I missed it! There was a house break-in where I was house-sitting, and the police had to come and board up the door where the burglars kicked it in. Luckily the alarm scared them away so nothing was stolen, but that's my sad story. And I had a good fountain photo too. Phooey. I'll try for August...
