    I had a great time last night. It was wonderful idea to take picture in night. I have learned a lot about shutter speed, was disappointed with my tripod. Next time I will be prepared. I hope to do this again and meet all these wonderful peoples in near future. It was awesome group. Thanks Jim.

    We do not get downtown much. Anyone suggest area near the gardens for shooting, say street photography or open to other suggestions. Hope to get down a little earlier.

      Piedmont Park is right next to the gardens. Just a walk of a couple blocks on the same street as the gardens Lots of good places to shoot, especially at the pond that is past the playground on Piedmont st.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
