  1. Rich,

    Sorry I missed you at the festival. I did see that very pretty girl (above). Hope you had a good time.


    • Sorry we didn’t connect. Had a slice at Zella’s and some ice cream from the truck. I left about 2:00, starting to feel the heat. It was a good festival: bands were really good and it seemed there was more art than usual. See you sometime. Stay well.

  2. Rich, As usual I enjoyed the posts about shooting. I also read an article on scanning negs that was good. For some reason I couldn’t view the shots of the Sowebo Fest.

    • Glad you enjoyed it. I don’t know why you couldn’t see the iamges. They are coming up for me and someone else commented on the images.
