Sitting at home, my arthritis means that attending Focus on Imaging is quite a painful experience now, and I cannot put up with all the pushing and prodding that goes on especially round the stands where the aisles are ten deep in people ogling the models
Thought it was next week...so am working.
Spent Sunday and Monday there, watching presentations, talking to people and battling through crowds of massive lens trying to photograph the hairs on the model's noses.
STAGE1 - 2004-6
STAGE2 - 2007-2010
STAGE3 - 2013
Went Sunday just ogling the models although Karl Taylor's seminars were very good if a little crowded
Stage 4 then - Looking for new / better products to sell clients, meetings with current suppliers to check out new products.
Although I did do a little bit of Stage 1 when trying to find a Lensbaby Composer.

Sign of old age
I am going tomorrow and will be doing all of the above and I am lucky enough to be the friend of one of the models on the Hasselblad stand so better not oggle her as her boyfriend will kill me but sure will be oggling the others
And trying to get a killer bargin in the last couple of hours of the show.
Karl Taylor had a couple of crackers...
