What about me Michael, what about me?

As long as I'm not shooting a baseball game that day, I'll try to make it.

LMAO. You know your always welcome to come shoot Chris. Hell you could just come over to the house as you only stay 5 mins away ;)

What weekend would be best for everyone? This one, the next one or the one after that?

Michael - Are you going to your daughters soccer game tomorrow? I'm going to start shooting the action shots in the morning, weather permitting.

Depending on when and where you go I could bring the big glass out.

We could do a nite time shoot downtown (skyline etc.) or a early morning (at the bean when its empty) or get some models and shoot them (come up with a theme). We could even rent out my union hall and have a light party.

Maybe the zoo?

Starved Rock (I think that's the name of it).

I just wanna get together with you guys and shoot. Its not that I don't shoot now it's just nice to be with a group of people who share my love for photography. Kinda like a forum but in person, check out each others gear (its nice to test drive things before buying) and whatnot.

Mike,

May I suggest something different? A friend and I went to Gary early last Sunday. We found some great abandoned buildings; including a once beautiful gothic church. Anyone up for that?
