I would love to do this but am not sure if I am off work that day....
If I am count me in.....sounds like fun. If not do you do many photowalks. I have been going down to the metroparks lately but really would rather shoot buildings and city life and shooting with someone else is always better.

thanks for the link. I really want to get into photography more but with no one I know into it its hard to get up the motivation to go out shooting by myself. Are you from mount Vernon? I have cousins from Mt. Vernon. The Gregorys Tom and Janet they have three sons Mark Paul and Steve?

If the exposure cleveland people don't get you motivated... I don't know what will.
we moved to the Vern last year from boston.
I grew up on the East side and went to CSU.
As for shooting downtownI have never had a problem from the west side market to CSU the lakefront to the Jake.
I just go and shoot .

I spent my weekends and summers over on 47th and Payne. I'll have to get out and be less worried about what others think....I have the feeling that when I am shooting and its not a city attraction people are going to think I'm crazy. I'm looking forward to more interaction with the groups here.

No they will think you are some sort of pro, I actually take shots of people goofing for the camera and email them jpegs. and with all the abandonment going on everything is considered a photo-op. or I have had conversations with people about photography as Art. it is actually fun.
as for meeting up, I will be Downtown or somewhere near all day (weather permits) and then go to my inlaws for dinner grab the family and come back down for the christmas tree lighting and Parade. and then i will go off on my own and shoot stuff till the crowd dies down and then go shoot the lights.
I usually e-mail Cell #s ou the week before and people will come and go all day & night.

okay that sounds great! Hope to get out there with you at least for a bit. My wife is currently working out of town for 5 months and comes home the week of thanksgiving so she may have other ideas for my time....LOL!

I keep it open, see where the day takes me. alot depends on weather. I will walk around in the snow,but not so much in the rain.
If it rains, whatever places i can sneak into or scam a tour.

I might be up for this. I have always admired your work, so shooting with you would be cool. I just broke my tripod though, so I have to get my hands on one.

Saturday is approaching.
My Fammily and i will be driving to cleveland thursday morning, so i will be e-mailing my cell Phone # to everyone who has shown interest.
Do NOT post your #'s in this( or any other) thread( for that matter)
Flickr has an open API and i am sure someone has a search for #'s
that could lead to stolen accounts and even identities.
yuo all will have my number and when you call i will have yours.
Anyone else who is interested leave a note here and i will send my # to you also.

I second that jake...i'm going to be out and about and would love the company shooting....
StickWare 11 years ago
yea please include me also.
RoundboyzPhotography PRO 11 years ago
Jake is there a time or a specific place you'll be at a certain time so I can plan accordingly or would it be easier to just contact you and find out where you are....I'd like to have a rough idea as to when I will be heading towards you.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone I am off to C-town.
Anyone else that wants to join will have tobe at the West side market before 9:30 and look for the Green hat or try finding us Downtown.
I do not have internet access in cleveland(I am going back to the 70's technology wise) I will try the library on friday but it may not be open

Cheers

to those that didn't make.I am sorry maybe another day.
to those that did, it was great meeting you and seeing you again.
winterfest was( and i am quoting the kid on the tricycle in "The Incredibles) Totally Wicked and awesome!! weather was nice.
I managed a quick trip to the B&O roundhouse, but focused mainly on euclid E9th and the west side market.
The evening was spent with my family enjoying winterfest. the new show in tower city was a nice mix of ballet gymnastics and fairytale.
the Horse parade was fun, the fireworks cool and the Choirs in the Old stone church angelic. the lights on the square were brilliant. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at flannery's Pub(e4th & prospect ) afterward. Bars seatig is awesome there. I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and enjoys the city during this time of year.
