Love the one of Natalie. It almost looks like she is going to attack you for taking her photo.

These are very lovely and rich. I'm not sure what that expression is on my face but it looks something like "I will beat your ass... but first I must cry." I am a sensitive artist.

Wonderful images! Looks like all of you had a great time -- wish I could have made it... (I'm from Chicago, so I the table full of cameras surely would have disappeared :-) )

Thanks for posting this, Matt...

Thanks for sharing these. I almost feel like I'm there... (Except for the fact that I don't have a beer in my hand, and I can't talk to any of you, and you're all two-dimensional and not moving.)

The Zee and Gayla shots really stand out for me. (I guess Conrad and I have similar taste.) ;)

I really wish I could remember what I was talking about when you took that picture. And yeah, I do look scary in it. But being camera-shy around photobloggers is useless. ;-)

Great set of photos, Matt.

Great portraits, except for me. I look like my mother - no offense, mum.

Missed it.
I'm here visiting San Francisco / East Bay.
Three weeks plus a day's change ago I was living in Parkdale, just a stone's throw from Rhino.
Missed it. Dammit. Next time.

I like the startling 'idea' or concept of blowing away the format that we websurfers have gotten used to. Many photos upon a page. Like a Magazine page that shouts out no columns and breaks up the format of every other page within the magazine, this entry surprises and delights my eyes.

Great collection here. I think I can learn a thing or two about people pictufes from this series. Thanks!

they're great. is it weird that i kind of envisioned everyone present exactly as they evidently appear in real life?

great series of portraits! i wish there would be more bloggers around here; am i really the only person with a photoblog in stockholm?

if i win a lot of money, i'd go on a photoblogsafaritrip, visiting bloggers in their natural habitat...
