RB Community is Alive and Well :)

Our RB Sydney Meet-up was a great success, many members kicked themselves out of bed at stupid O’clock and met at Shelly Beach: Arfan Kelly Karen Maria Yolanda Adriana Tatiana Jason Jeff Loraine Ian Adriano Arnold

The sky didn’t put on anything spectacular for us, but it’s always good to spend time by the ocean at sunrise, and today was no exception. After the sun had done its thing, we walked along the waterfront, taking photos, chatting, and generally adding to the congestion on the path. Then it was off to a big breakfast at the Interpolitan Cafe, followed by a walk around part of North head.
It was great to catch up with old friends and make some new ones, wonderful company and conversation and a bit of exercise thrown in. It’s certainly rewarding to be part of the Redbubble community. Thanks to everyone who turned up and made this such a memorable and enjoyable day :)

Breakfast, I hope everyone left with the right lenses :)

The biggest lens we saw (yep, it’s a canon)


Riding the big canon lens (even the Nikon folk couldn’t resist) Maria was planking.

    Sounds like a lovely day was had by all…wow look at those intimidating pieces of equipment…my camera is so tiny, it fits into the palm of my hand…I would not know where to start with any of those…great photos Matt..

  • Thanks Janis, it was a lovely day and so god to meet so many other Bubblers. Yes there was some scary looking camera gear there, mine is rank-amateur by comparison :)
