June 27 Portland Steemit Meetup

@ganjafarmer has been busting his tail promoting Steemit in Portland. I first met him at an earlier meet-up and we've kept in touch since then. He invited me to the meetup on Sunday and I had a blast! It was great to meet @tilestar, @aresheir, @elamental, @hempress, and everybody else.

Before getting to the photos, I want to give an extra big thanks to @ganjafarmer for organising just about everything. Without his hard work, this event wouldn't have been possible. Thanks Ganj!

Here are some of my photos of the meet-up.

The meet-up was across the river from downtown Portland. The weather was perfect!

While @tilestar worked on the sign, I took a few photos of the skyline.

From left to right, @ganjafarmer, @aresheir, @tilestar.

After the sun set, the grill got fired up and the lightsabers came out. @ganjafarmer had told me about them, but I hadn't seen them before. They're a lot more durable than the toy sabers I knew as a kid.

The rest of the photos are going to be of lightsaber battles. When I was in college, I took a black and white photography class. I was really fascinated with long exposure photos and I used that technique for most of my assignments. This was my first attempt at long exposure photos in about 20 years. I hope you enjoy some of them.

This is my second favorite photo from this set. To me, it looks like two people preparing to fight on a virtual or spiritual plane.

This is my favorite photo from the set. It conveys the ambiance of the meet-up better than my words can.

That's going to do it for this post. It was great hanging out with everyone.

@tilestar, @aresheir, and @ganjafarmer, if you want copies of any of the photos of you, without the watermark, let me know.

Looks like a whole lot of fun. The time exposures are classic. Like you said, a great way to sum it all up. Hope no-one lost and arm or a leg or other important part...

Wow and yep that's an exposure! You got me well! Working hard payed off for sure and I'd love some pictures of the meet-up! Damn! What an amazing set! I'll have to vote later as I'm at 80% right now! But damn!

Very cool!! I can't believe I missed this....had my head in the sand I guess. Anyway, looks like you guys had a blast - light sabers wow, I would have loved that, what a great idea. Great job @ganjafarmer for building community and spreading the word. So glad the community in Portland is growing, Cheers!!!
