    thought id post this in a new thread so people dont think its just for organizing an event
    heres some of my shots i got
    it was mentioned to just post yer 3 fav/best... so i stuck with that so i could help work on narrowing down shots


    hey thanks so much for the fun today, btw
    scrambling here, so ill type more later! but heres THREE pics... i stuck to the 3 suggestion to help me with narrowing down photos.
    i liked these as they were all very diff from one another

    thanks again for letting me borrow that crazy fun fish eye! cant wait to get my BCL version!

    start off with a group shot that im not counting for the 3 ;)

    Exclusively used my new O17, 1.8 lens and am very impressed with the quality of the pictures. Now I need to work on the quality of the photographer. Had a great time and looking forward to our next outing.

    Shot this from the hip so the feet are a bit chopped but captured the most important parts of the scene.

    i dont see why not
    i seem to recall at least a handful of people being down in the houston area

    just start up a thread like: Houston, TX Meetup - Checking interest!

    or something along those lines, and see how many ya get!
    I dont mind driving to houston to join in on the fun, but my schedule is super crazy and can be pretty last second. id have to check when you houstonians... houstonites.... houstones... decide on a date!

    But then, I've been a knee and ankle man since 1843!


    Anyone know if they've got bike lanes between Austin and Houston?
