Subject: [Leica] IMG: Brief images of the LUG/Dalai Lama get together weekend in NYC

As Tina has already posted, no Dalai Lama images just yet, however here's 
some images from the brief but humbling experience.

Sorry to Tina and Emanuel for not getting a chance to say goodbye, I was not 
about to wake anyone at 5am. Oh wait, I woke Kyle and we did one more 
Waldorf robe bed jump. Or maybe we did not. Or did we?

So a brief story of the images...

I kid you not I was in NYC for 10 minutes and we were in a liquor store 
sampling Laphroaig Single Malt. 25yr Laphroaig was a reasonable $500 a 
bottle. Watch out for Scots wearing skirts, that's all I'm saying. Emanuel 
is having the bottle autographed in the first image.

Mirror image was just outside the DL's hotel suite. I thought I had everyone 
in the shot except I see Phong is hidden.

Kyle and I attempted some serious iPhone stacking, though clearly no one 
else was cool enough to have one so this shot is a bit sad. If we had said 
"35/1.4 stacking", there would have been 10 or so on the table I'm sure!

I tried some more "M8 and 28, and shoot without aiming" images.

I spent the past 2 weekends in NYC, while I'm glad to be home, I'm going to 
miss the City of Blinding Lights.
