I'm jealous!  Why does all the good stuff seem to happen on the other side
of the world? :(

Presumably this is because you don't think your own work is up to scratch,
and there was a high standard of work?  I think you need to re-read all that
stuff about self-doubt that was on the LUG a couple of weeks ago....  Was
there any sort of work which was getting a dominant run?  Photojournalism or
something else?  Just interested in the types of portfolios that people were
lugging around... And of those lugging their folios around were they young,
middle aged, old, ...? (Yes, depends on your POV, I agree :) )  Just curious
who's showing what.
