Photographical event

By leaving the building where yesterday a big photographical event was held stumbled a participant on the door sill and dropped a box full of cameras and lenses. Yes it was a very crowded and good visited event.
For the first time in a new location where normally indoor sports are being done.
Not every participant was full in photography.
But some fine accessories were found for little money. I treated myself on a black billingham hadley pro for a quarter of the new price from a guy who had a whole lot of them and was now switched of system and told me that there was no place for them anymore in his house. (I am now sorry that I didn't photograph his stand with the bags. It must have been a complete room.)

  1. The first photo made me cringe. The rest of them made me wish I were there.

  3. The only thing that could be worse in the first photo would be had there been NO carpet!

  4. How sad to see all those lenses on the floor. I hope none were broken!

  5. This event would be very good for me... but too late and very too far away. Interesting photos.

  6. We have nothing like this here! Maybe we are not big enough or do not have enough population density. Still, I have never heard of anything like this in New York or Chicago. Maybe I just don't spend enough time there.

    1. I don't know exactly where I was in 2002 on a road trip in the USA but in a hotel where we stayed they held an event just like this one only a little smaller. I was just passing by and didn't know it but looking to the doors of te entrance we went inside and looked around. Lots of leica and nikon around.

    PS: no you are not missing the wires on the second bridge - the tall towers are just for decoration (I think)

  8. It's good you live close enough to enjoy such events - and also a great way for people to move along unwanted photographic equipment.
