    Let's Do a Portrait Party in Southern California!

    Hi Everybody,

    I am thinking of throwing a farewell party for my dear friend Domenico sometime in July or August in my house in walnut, California. My rental house sits on 4 acres of land with lots of old trees.

    The theme of the party is LF portraiture. Tri Tran and I are going to commisson Demenico to do some family portraiture and I hope to see a few more people having their portraits taken dusing the party. This is a rare chance to have your own pictures taken and crafted by such a talented LF photographer. You can even choose your favorite lenses for your portraiture among a dozen or so old lenses. Visual Quality, Hermagis Eidoscope, Euryscope, Universal Heliar, Dallmeyer Anastigmat Portrait and Verito, to name a few.

    Even if you don't feel like to have Domenico to take your pictures, you are welcome to this party and can play and shoot with these lenses. Tri will bring his 11x14 and 20x24 cameras and a few canons and I will have my old Kodak 2D and maybe a new 16x20 camera with 14x17 reducing back for this party. Bring your cameras and lenses if you like.

    It will be on a Sunday and will last whole day. No naked ladies will be invited this time as we want to take each other's pictures. I will be the chef of the day with a mouth watering BBQ served at the end of the day.

    Ideas and suggestions are welcome and let's have lots of fun!

    Wish I could be there Hugo, but it's a bit of a drive for me! Have fun!

    That does sound like fun! Actually, it sounds more than fun; it sounds like an amazing opportunity! I wish I could attend, carrying big boxes of big film! I'm not much for being photographed, but I'd love to have my portrait made by Domenico, or Hugo, or many others here, and I'd love to have an opportunity to make theirs. I'm sure those fortunate enough to attend will have a great time, and I hope we less unfortunate will see some of the spoils here in the form of posted portraits.

    I'm in S.D. and this sounds great! Are wives invited?

    Any thoughts on what we could bring, ie: Pot Luck?

    Also waiting for the date to firm up. I might want to try for the "farthest distance traveled" ribbon.

    Wally,

    Wives are welcome.

    Jim,

    It looks like mid or late July at the moment. Which weekend is best for you? We certainly can arrange it to see it will fit. Everybody down here miss you.

    Matt,

    You have to come because you are so close.
