Between sales I managed to snap a few photos of authors, photographers and other notables who stopped by the table. Here's a sampling:
Photojournalist pals Brian Plant and Chris Goepel.
The family that sells together . . . Kat, Laura and El in a quiet moment.
The following day Ted, Dave Styffe and I caravanned up to the California State Railroad museum in Sacramento to see Jim Shaughnessy's photo exhibit and book presentation. Both were well worth the drive north, and photographer Scott Lothes was kind enough to take a group portrait.
Dave also updated his famous "Top ten lies told at Winterail" list this year. Not to steal his thunder, but highlights include:

Coming next: photos from the book signing trip to Southern California.
