If you can't beat them...

NEC Photography Show Monday

Another busy and fascinating day at the NEC.   As yesterday we arrived just before the doors opened, like yesterday we were still there when they announced "the show is now closed please leave".

The first thing which struck me was how many more people were waiting to get in.  Yesterday the "waiting area" was not quite half full, today stewards were having to move people into the few spaces available.

The day was a mix of viewing stalls, talks and min blip meets.  The first blip meet was with Suejay, Terrifo and Green56.   Then at the RPS stand a gentleman spotted Clickychicks Blipfoto T shirt (dating back to the early days when Blipfoto market things) and asked if blip had a stand then called his wife Stiffknees over to talk.  Later we spotted Tryfan while we were having a sit down so that was another blipmeet.

So all in all a tiring, inspiring and very informative day.   I won't mention expensive as CC would have eventually made her purchases but with out any show discount so actually spent less than we might.

I almost forgot to mention the blip.   This is a shot taken over the heads of the crowd.  The young lady was modelling for a man who was talking and taking photos.   I didn't hang around long enough to remember which stand or what he was teaching about.  I thought the shot made a change from shots of crowds, equipment or lecturers talking.
