The Saloon isn't big enough anymore!

After swapping tables 3 times (with the same woman i might add!) we finally managed to get a long table (almost) big enough for the droves of photographers and their friends for the Suds and Silver's mid-summer get together at the Saloon on U Street, Washington DC.

Expert waiter Kalib once again gave us priority seating and delivered the cold, delicious brews on time and with his usual flare.

Amongst the riveting conversations that I could barely hear over the rabble were discussions relating to Medium and Large Format especially with the renewed interest in the humble Holga.

There were a number of new faces also...the full list of attendees is as follows:

graeme, erica, bill, misha, praveen, will (new) , andy, holly (new) , steve, josh and matt (new)

Congratulations to Judy plus next meetup!

Congratulations to Judy on her latest exhibition up north, down east. From Frank's account it sounds like everything went very well indeed.

The exhibition is on show at the Mulholland Bros, a market, gallery and gift shop located in Lubec, Maine. It's also the headquarters of Lubec Landmarks a non-profit that seeks to prerserve and restore the McCurdy smokehouse complex that Frank so beautifully photographed many years ago before it closed it's doors for good. You can check out Frank's images here.

Judy's show looked great - nice idea also with the torn seamless. Here are a few small images of the space courtesy of the show's expert hanger and official photographer, Frank Van Riper:

Following on from the last meetup on Erica's roofdeck I propose we all meet up on Thursday July 31st at 7:30pm.

Locatation to be decided although possible contenders are:

erica's roofdeck (again)
the saloon (the tried and trusted favourite)
ned devines in herndon (yeah right)
