First of all – mad props to Vincent and the rest of the peeps at BorrowLenses.com for the radical 24mm f/1.4L Mark II USM Lens. All I can say is WOW!!
While I wasn’t able to shoot the video I wanted, I was able to get some great images. I’m a complete n00b to the photography world and I have to say that most of the successful images below are due entirely to sheer luck (that and the subjects were naturally fabulous).
My week started with a panel discussion for Agent Reboot. Chad from Agent Evolution grabbed a nice picture of the 4 of us.
After Agent Reboot I zipped across town to catch the 2nd half of REBarCamp/SanFrancisco and just in time for the Taco Truck.
Remember last years Taco Truck? Waiting in line for my El Pastor Burrito I found the always smiling Laura Monroe.
This being the 3rd birthday of the REBarCamp movement – we all celebrated with a little cake. Here’s Andy Kaufman having a little fun with part of the Trulia decoration.
Where did the other half of Trulia go? Tara Christianson and Bobbi Howe took care of that.
Back at the conference down in Vendor Alley my friend An Bui (Yes, that’s An with one n) was handing out little Docusign guys. Gorgeous!
Also down in Vendor Alley I found my friend Rich Bailey (of Wolfnet). Rich gave me a autographed Edmonton Oilers Game Puck for my collection. Who was it signed by? Glen Sather that’s all! Rich has forgotten more about hockey than I’ll ever learn!
Deb Madey always brightens up a room! I grabbed a quick shot during the cocktail hour.
My friend Chris Drayer of FloorPlanOnline grabbed me to show some incredible 3D modeling built from their technology. If you’ve been to their website, this is their “model” home in 3D by http://www.floorplanner.com. This is Formula 1 Technology. Race teams now will create cars and wings in their computers and then print in 3D to create an accurate real model that they can test in the wind tunnel. It’s called stereolithography. You have to see the detail in this down to the piano keys!
Finally I’ll leave you with the last image – a group shot of the crowded Vendor Alley. Why? Not specifically because of the Vendors but because this is where all the great conversation and connections take place, in the halls and the alleys outside of the conference!
