    Cool Another NY Mini with Charles Hess anyone?

    I just found out that Charles Hess will be in NYC from Sunday June 20th through the following Friday. I asked him if he would be interested in getting together with some of us. YES! He said his schedule is flexible.

    I said I'd post these dates if anyone is interested in another NYC "mini" gathering. He'll work the rest out with us. Personally I've been looking forward to meeting this pro photographer for a long time.........so I'll mark my calendar. Maybe we can plan something.

    Awesome! I have a major server project that is being implemented on 6/19-6/20, so that whole week will be busy for me, but I'd love to try!

    That's great.........

    This will be so much fun. Hopefully others will be able to make it.

    Barney - thanks for asking. Long story short, Molly got sick while Barney was here and the shelter told me to return Barney. They think Barney brought something into the house. After 4 vet visits Molly is just getting back to normal. Barney was adopted the following week.

    but if I can squeeze Mr.Hess into my master plan...... I'll load up my rangefinder, f100, and DSLR and be his shadow

    Hey, I've been in Milwaukee...marched in a parade once when I was in the Navy Band. :-)
    And Paul...if we find some grass & a bird, I'll hold your camera bags while you do your wizardry. :-)

    Yeah, I've got to get away from work for awhile, have my hotel booked near Penn Station, and hope to meet a few PR friends. If not, I'll be back there off and on in the summer.

    I won't say just yet

    Every time I've said yes---something goes wrong so maybe but I would love to! I won't say much else and if I can I will email you and Paul the night before...

    Nothing is booked for that day...so far.

    I'd like to make it if possible. My family is going away the 27th for vacation and I'll be busy. A daytime meeting would work best for me, maybe a lunch meeting probably closer to the beginning of the week. I could take a day off from work and spend the rest of the day street shooting. Since Charles will be around for the week maybe a few meetings might work?

    I'll be open to most anything, as my purpose on being there is to rest, relax, and wander the streets...so, nothing specific is planned.

    Unhappy Ohhhh, I wish I could make it..

    Street, candids, and people photography is something I just don't do too well, and I WANT to soooooo bad. Charles, you are probably lucky I can't make it. I'd be picking your brain at every chance and following you like a shadow!! ;)
    Hope all of you have a great time!!
    I'll make one of these gatherings someday!!
    Regards,
    Brian

    That is what New York City is all about - wander the streets. You never know just what you'll see. LAst week I decided to take my camera to Central Park. As I was photographing some azaleas, I noticed right behind the bush a young couple, shall we say "En Flangrante". I could not bring myself to photograph though ;)

    not just NYC

    who needs NYC to see "public shows of affection"

    I live in central NJ and can't think of one public park were I've not seen such things.

    Actually 2 miles from my house EVERY tuesday and friday at 9am.....the same 2 vehicles pull in.... the rest is history

    Argh!

    I can't make the weekend - maybe a weekday meet-up. My sister and I have been planning a surprise party for our parent's 40th anniversary - and the party - IN TEXAS - is June 20

    Oh well!

    Hi Megan ... I'll be there Sunday through Friday a.m., so let me know if you'd like to meet up, even for a cup of coffee. You could show me your Holga. :-)

    Hi Charles -
    I return from Houston late Monday. So "even coffee" sounds great during the week!

    starting to realize you are VERy special ;)

    How (do tell) do you get born in the middle of two days--- you were either somewhere where the time changes from one day to the next by crossing over country lines or you were born at midnight.

    do tell...

    I wasn't trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time.

    I'm planning on coming into NYC Friday the 25th at about 9:AM. I'll probably be there 'till early afternoon. Meeting for coffee,lunch, sitting in the park or whatever would be great.
