I've come down from the high that is Camp Mighty but I've been ALL over taking next steps here in Vancouver. It's been quite a busy week - but good busy. Had coffee and lunch with potential collaborators (that sounds vaguely WWII-ish) and am down to the LAST street photography class next week. Sniff... You KNOW I'll still be going out on my own.

Before the links, a little geeky, arty gift guide action.
