    I think we've got pretty good representation from Southern California ... any interest in having a meetup sometime? Would love to get a "family portrait" of all our :43: babies in one shot! :biggrin:

    How about the wild animal park/safari park?

    I guess that's only good if you have telephotos though, and m43rds doesn't really have many good ones...

    Sorry, I got swamped with a bunch of activities (life, huh) so I haven't been devoting much attention to this.

    Or do we want to pick some event and organize a meetup around the event?

    Or perhaps do a Metro station crawl?

    I'm down! How about a downtown walk? Or maybe we can commission a model and shoot by the LA river? :wink: I got a buddy who has a studio in Lincoln Heights, we can all chip in for the facility, it's fairly cheap. Melrose is also kinda fun, especially with all the pretty ladies out in the daytime. :wink:

    We can probably get a couple girls from Model Mayhem or something and the guy I know lives in an art loft with roof top access and is close to the industrial area with really cool backdrops. Though that may take a bit more organization as opposed to all meeting up for some lunch and walking around! :biggrin:
