      5 busses every 10 minutes from Schoolcraft. Drop off in west side. No line at all. I could not find any one, but I met and mingled with other people.

      Hi Jason I realized that afterwards. I parked on the parking lot and payed $5 thinking it would have been faster. Great images it looks like we were very close to each other at some of the events. I have send an email to all attendees regarding sharing images on the main website of the event for a period of an year. Please respond if interested.

    Am looking forward to joining this group because I have been searching for a photography group that appeals to all skill levels. I went to the Highland Games last year and took some really great photos. Nessi, the human costumed Loch Ness Monster, was really funny. The kilts, bagpipers, games, etc. were good subjects. I am looking forward to the one this year to shoot more photos.
