    Q'sB I'm off for a drive, but it has been ages since my last meetup(about 2years or more if memory serves me badly enough!!)

    Trouble in Melb of course is the weather.
    My real issue is managing time between work kids and work.

    If others are up for a meet, I'd put my hand up too.

    Well, how about May 26-27 as a weekend day to aim for then?

    Otherwise we can try a centralised Melb meetup on the Jun 2-3 weekend that coincides with the National meetup to celebrate AP's anniversary .. it's just that I have to drag two uninspired kids along as well on that weekend .. but they'll just have to 'get over it'.

    Of course there's nothing to stop us from meeting up in May AND again the weekend after on the 2-3 Jun along with the other national meetups that appear to be happening.

    We seem to be getting a regular pattern of ok weather during the week, and then miserable rainy weekends on a consistent basis(my overgrown front and rear yards are proof of that!) :rolleeys:

    I can do weekend of 26-67 May - I'm assuming we mean in the city? That would be awesome. If we met in the arvo we could get some early evening low light shots too. Anyway, any time that weekend is good for me. We could also do coffee, and maybe a small camera shop visit too

    Edited to change "low life" to "low light"

    Low life, low lights and coffee .. all sounds good to me

    It gets dark fairly early nowadays so this low light scenario sounds easy to do.

    Coffee and camera shops are all along Elizabeth St, so this would make sense as a starting point .. say the GPO area .... Lt Bourke and Collins.

    If all else fails and it rains(as expected) we can then quickly switch to 'plan B'(there's always a plan B!!) and do some long exposure/soft water effect water feature photography...

    The 26th or 27th May looks great for me. I'm new(ish) to photography and would really love to meet up with you guys to get some inspiration and advice and, obviously to take some pictures.

    Yay! This is looking good, we might have some good numbers

    Arthur, I remember that day but wasn't in the city - it's quite bizarre, isn't it? It would certainly be fun to photograph!

    Also of note!!

    I@M just alerted us to the fact that this http://This Digital Show Thingy is on, roughly speaking, at about the same time that we may be planning(or not!!) this potential meetup.

    I suppose this show could be a point to mark on our GPS enabled smart phone calendars.
    Bring a camera, bring a card, bring your partner if you must .. but hopefully there are samples to try out for ourselves.

    It's at the MEC Southbank, so parking and transport is easy enough.

    Plenty of coffee around the traps there too.

    Excellent idea. You can get free tickets for that show by emailing them or clicking the free registration button on their website. I'd be good for the 26th, but can't do the 27th

    MEC... otherwise known as The Shed. LOL

    I'll be there at the show... just look for the girl with the cam... oh. Oops.

    LMAO.

    There's good eats and drinks down along Southbank across the road.

    I'm going to a couple of the keynote presentations so I might sort of flitter about the place in between acts. If you see me, say hi. I'll be wearing... um... clothes. Hmm. Red carnations, anyone?

    Saturday afternoon, after the show is a good idea.
    Will try to attend.
    If it does rain like Feb 2011, will be a good test for my gear (Pentax - supposed to be weatherproof).

    Yay! Looks like this is happening - Saturday arvo?

    I best register for a ticket to this show - not sure it's my thing, but shopping is, and I'm sure there will be opportunities to pull out the credit card!

    OK, as this appears to be next Sat, any hints from the interested parties as to what time (roughly) they'll be attending?

    I'm betting that my energy levels on the day in question will see me there at somewhere between 11AM-1PM or so.

    If others are happier to meet later than 1PM, that's also fine.
    There's sufficient activity and interest in the that general location to keep us occupied for a few hours, even if we don't take the show into consideration.

    Where and what time does everybody want to meet?

    I could be at the main entrance of Jeff's Shed at 11:00 or alternatively I'm happy to meet up in the afternoon after visiting to expo.

    Robert and Arthur, you two seem to be the main instigators of the event, what do you two want to do?

    I am more then happy to meet at 11:00 am out the front of Jeffs shed or we could decide to meet all at say 2pm. At a fairly common but less crowded spot near by. Reason i suggest somewhere else for meeting is im not quite sure what we all look like :P How about the giant red steps further along batman av. I think thats the name of the strip that runs alongside the yarra heading towards flinder street station. Its on the same side as Jeffs. Idea?
