ImagingUSA, Day Two
Well, days one and two, actually. I scanned my film from both days and that’s basically all this post will be – photos. The second day was pretty much uneventful. We just walked around, looking at all the stuff we looked at the first day.
Although I finally got some help from the Epson booth, concerning the issue of the non-extracting extractable 2200 OSX driver file that Epson has on their site. When I brought up the problem to one of the Epson reps, he knew exactly what I was talking about, and told me that, if I gave him my e-mail address, he would send me a driver file that would actually unstuff properly. Of course, this led me to wonder why in hell they haven’t replaced the file on the website? It isn’t hard, and it’s been bad for a long while.
Anyway, here are some shots from the Expo (all shots taken with a Leica M6 and Ilford Hp5+ film):
The weather outside was frightful…
I don’t know what Weather Fest was – something else held in the convention center – but I thought the sign presented a bit of humor on such a cold, nasty day. Seriously, the weather in San Antonio is cold, wet and nasty right now. Great time for a convention.

Of course, I made a beeline for the Leica booth as soon as I walked in the door. Leica reps Rob Logan (L) and Ebi Kuenne didn’t seem to mind having their photo made. Nice guys, both. Of course, any man who lets me play with both the M8 and the DMR-equipped R9 is cool in my book. Although, that was why they were at the expo in the first place.

Seamus came all the way from Dublin for the conference and expo.

This nice young lady works for VII. You may have heard of them.
Fellow shooter Wendi Poole hams up for someone else’s camera… And mine too.
Here we have the rest of the crew from Photo Express. They had free peppermint patties, so I was loitering. Believe it or not, they were all standing like that, waiting for me to come along by chance.

She’s a little skinny, but I like her anyway. It’s a statue in a shop, btw, in case you were wondering… But you probably weren’t, so…
Phil of Photo Express was kind enough to let us scarf some of their pizza. Here, Dave and Seamus talk about… something. I don’t remember what. At the moment, I was concentrating on focusing and pizza.
