    Thanks BackdoorHippie

    Thanks BackdoorHippie
    Back in 2013 I joined Nikonites - a time when this forum was really a hub of activity. That October @jdeg @Eduard @BackdoorHippie and I got together in Princeton, NJ to meet and join in the Scott Kelby Photo Walk.

    Fast forward 6 years. Jake (BackdoorHippie) donated some prints for a Cancer fund raiser which was hosted at the Mercer Oaks Country Club in West Windsor, NJ. So on Sunday I spent a little time reconnecting with him. The hummingbird image really caught my attention! It looked much more beautiful in person than it does in my pics. The waterfalls was printed on acrylic - sorry about the glare from the lights. And I remember seeing the house image posted here on Nikonites a while back.

    If you've never met up with other forum members, you should really consider it. I think there is a Meet-And-Greet thread somewhere on this forum.

    Just want to say thank you to Jake for all the times he shared his knowledge on editing. If you haven't yet checked out his web site, you can see his images here. Backdoor Arts – Photography by Jake Kurdsjuk

    Unfortunately I should have shot these images differently. There are a few different light sources causing color balance issues. Note to self: take a flash and a modifier in the future!

    That was certainly a great day Cindy! Glad to see that you and Jake were able to reminisce. I still remember going to Jake's favorite cheese steak place! Excellent images of course!

    I completely agree with you on getting out and meeting other forum members. I'm so glad that Laurie and I were fortunate to meet Don & Gloria, Marilynne, Pete, Mary, Ivan, Liz, Colin, Rich, Kevin and Wayne at the Circle B a couple years ago too.

    FWIW I was in my hometown of Chicago this past weekend and attended the photowalk that Scott Kelby was personally hosting. Still a great event.

    You met quite a few forum members, Eduard! That must have been a lot of fun. And WOW - you participated in the Photo Walk led by Scott Kelby! That's amazing! Any chance you will start a new thread to discuss it?

    Cindy - thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to come out. It's always good connecting with other photographers and people you know only by forum name. The walk in Princeton was special and I need to get to Hoagie Haven again one of these days - this time out it was tomato pies from an old Chambersburg haunt now relocated.
