Hi Nick and David (and others)

The trade sh0ow is at teh convention center in Rosemont, I believe right by O'Hare. Looks like exhibit hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. the Tuesday and Wednesday. Right now I am not sure of my whole itinerary - likely to visit a customer in Pittsburg too. Know I am at a soccer tournament in Saskatoon the weekend before, so expect to fly to out Monday. Will keep you posted as plans are made.

Something is coming together. Will know more in a few days. I carved out some time from work already - I think - if they honor the request calendar.

Hey, the more, the merrier! Gas is high right now. Your avatar pic suggests a transportation alternative to the price of driving.

We could all go to Shedd and shoot the fishies? Or go to Brookfield and shoot the animals?

Does Chicago have any botanical gardens? There's another option.

Just spewing off ideas here.

All the above sound good. I live a couple minutes from the Brookfield Zoo. I haven't been to the Shedd in years and I've never been to the Chicago Botanical Gardens.

I will leave all of the final arrangements to you, David and the gang. I go to the airport at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow and will not have internet access after that. It all sounds great, and I am really looking forward to shooting Chicago!

The last time I went to Brookfield was in 2007, about a year ago I believe.
The Shedd was a couple of years ago.

And it's a *never* as well for the Chicago Botanical Garden.

I've been really wanting to purchase a Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro... if we do decide to go to the Botanical Gardens for a photo shoot... I'd really like to have purchased that first. I should be able to afford it a little later this summer after my next few weddings. Almost done paying off my 40D :)

Otherwise I'm game for anything. I am only about an hours drive from Chicago, so I am not opposed to heading out there more than once as well :)

Sorry I work Monday-Friday... non wedding Saturdays and just about any Sundays are best (Sundays preferred).

The 100 Macro is an awesome lens, I regret selling it sometimes. I've currently got the 180L Macro if you want to use it or the 135L plus extension tubes. I'm up for going to any of the above or somewhere between here and Indiana. I'll have to double check but I should be available the 28th and 29th. Good luck with your weddings, I've done a couple this year and need to figure out a better routine fo processing, it's currently taking me forever.

I'm presently open for something on the 28th or 29th. I do my post processing in bulk in Lightroom, I have found compared to doing everything in Photoshop that really saves me a lot of time since I can bulk edit.

It looks like I'm going to the Cubs Sox game on Saturday the 28th so how about Sunday the 29th. Who's in and where are we going?

I just ordered the 100mm f2.8 macro... so I'm open for anywhere :) It will be here well before then.
