      Thanks, Erik! This is the only photo in the set that I'm actually proud of.

      I was directly behind the podium, "hiding" behind a lady who declined to shift out of my way, much to the displeasure of the people around me. (I love it when complete strangers stick up for me! :-) Lousy location, lousy lighting, lousy head cold. Excuses, excuses....

      Good work Roger! I think the good ole NH weather cycle is causing everyone to deal with some nasty congestion. I went to the Salem event. It was crowded! Lighting sucked there too. It was outside in the dark. I did get called up to the stage and the ropeline. Too cool! Oh, and Erik? I had one of those 70-200mm f/2.8L IS, but there were even better lenses I was drooling over!

      Great Picture!!! but that's terrible, why would anyone not step aside to let you get a better view!? Some people are just so rude? Was she being mean about it?

      These are great shots, although I'm not sure I can be friends with you anymore. : P
