08/17/10 262 W, 1 I - + 4 - 3 Wrapping The Expo

Pictures have been posted from last week's fire expo in Raleigh, some 400 shots from Friday and Saturday, plus a bit of the banquet on Sunday night, where Raleigh Fire Department Capt. John Fanning was named Fireman of the Year. Congrats, and we're waiting on a press release on that one. Watch this space.

Thanks also to Tim Blaisdell, for snapping shots of Yours Truly in action at his history workshop. Those are included in the photos, and you can see a rare glimpse of Mr. Blogger in something other than a tropical shirt. He was reportedly also seen Sunday night with a tie. And he was wearing it!

Good crowd that morning at the workshop, and thanks everyone for attending. Tried to talk slower, and even had a small sign as a personal reminder. Didn't really work. Got some great questions, and ideas for the future. Was also thinking that maybe a workshop or even round table on incident photography might be in order next year. If they'll have me.

Let's see, on the coverage front, FireNews posted this summary. Lee Wilson is finishing his photos. WRAL posted some parade photos, by Gregory Wiggs and myself. The News & Observer also wrote about the Expo. The show also had their own photographers on hand. Maybe they'll show those shots on the NCSFA web site.

Parade was fun, show floor was interesting, and a large time was had seeing folks from both near and far. Thanks for your support on all fronts. Now let's go look at Mike's photos.
