FotoweekDC BYT panel - come heckle me Jeckle!

For some reason the good people at Brightest Young Things have asked me to pull my carcass along to FotoweekDC HQ (the old Borders bookstore in downtown DC) for a panel on November 10th at 6:30pm. There'll also be an afterparty featuring the very awesome BYT photogoofers for all of the snappy cats with social skills. Thanks BYT and FotoweekDC!
