    Harold took the mystery out of the printing options.

    Is there parking at the site or street parking?

    • Harold D.

      Lorretta is correct, there is street parking, but this is a busy downtown area. Don't expect to park right in front of the gallery.

    I have been before, there is street parking, but I should imagine it will be busy. I don't know about the surrounding area, hopefully someone will post area to park or parking garage details!!!

    Is there an attendance limit? I can't imagine a retail store could hold as many people as are likely to show up if there is no number restriction.

      Hi Dale, this is an art gallery and it is fairly big. There is no attendance limit, but I do suggest arriving on the early side. Thanks for the question. Harold

      And love to have you Lisa! I expect to be in New York at the end of October and presenting at a PhotoExpo workshop, so that is closer to you.

    Darn! I booked a trip to Tanzania and just realized that I'll have to miss Harold's Best of Botanicals reception. I've changed my RSVP accordingly. On the brightside, I went to the website and saw that the exhibit will be there until July 12th, so I guess I can see it when I return. :-)

    I will be taking Harold's course in Feb and look forward to this course as a short refresher. There is always so much to learn from Harold.

    • Harold D.

      Dear Susan, I appreciate your kind words! Just to clarify, and for everyone's info, this presentation is not a how-to course. I expect a general audience, including casual visitors, folks from SF Botanical Gardens and their supporters, gardeners . . . this will mainly be about showing my prints as examples. Very best wishes, Harold
