Penn Camera's November News & Notes
By Jeff Snyder

What a great day at the Breeders Cup at Belmont this past weekend, and so great to see so many members too. I'm always amazed to how many people come up to me and say hello at the big events, thank you, it's always terrific to meet the people I speak to and correspond with!

The same goes for PhotoPlus a few weeks ago too. While I was at he Think Tank Photo booth at the show, again, it was non stop'ers saying hi.

Next stop, see you at the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar in early December -
