And here's a few from San Angelo, TX:

This was perplexing! Though it was St Patty’s Day I’m certain it wasn’t in his honor. This Maori performance was at a Mexican church’s fiesta. San Angelians sure know how to turn the world upside down!

What a great day spent with @deepaqua and @Crdome! The weather could have been better, but the company was fantastic! :drinks:

We started out at The Denver Milk Market, an all-local, all-wonderful mix of take-away and dine-in restaurants and bars.

WOW! I was quite envious when I saw @Web-Betty and @deepaqua ‘s photo suites. You guys took some great ones. When Melissa and I last shot I exclusively used Ciné lenses. Since that worked out so well, and given the fairly low light levels at the Market, I opted to do the same again. In retrospect I’ve decided I ought not to used a single focal length, and worked with my 12-60 too. Doing so allowed you both To “see” much more.

I don’t understand. Are @deepaqua and @Web-Betty making fun of my affliction brought about by too many decades of shooting photos?

Just to clarify, I only used manual focus primes during our photowalk. The early shots at the Milk Market were taken with a Pentax 50MM and the later ones with the Kodak 25MM that you lent me.

Crdome’s Minimally Magical Mystery Trip

Final Accounting*

Photo excursion dates: February 26 - Mar 24, 2019
Duration: 28
Distance: 4700 miles (7563.917 kilometers)
Expenses per day: $42.45/day
Weather restrained days of shooting: 14
Photographs: 114 keepers
Consultation gig income provided: $1500
Remaining balance: $311.51

I am grateful to family, friends, and fellow M4/3 colleagues who made my photo excursion possible. Especially (in order of appearance): @Web-Betty, @deepaqua, @CharlieL, and @Bif. An intended meeting with @curtisls87* was (hopefully) postponed for another time, by events of extreme weather and calamity.

I do not have adequate superlatives to describe the joy of camaraderies established by visiting and shooting with like-minded photographers.

Thanks to all!
