I'd finished up with AORN Congress earlier in the day, and done a walkabout in the afternoon/early evening for some other photographs. Then checked out of my hotel, met some new friends, and headed out for dinner and a bit of a walkabout after dark. After that, back to the hotel to pick up bags and we took the Metro to the end of the line, and the Weekend Immersion in Art started.
Or, I suppose, it started earlier when we all got together and did the walkabout.
Tripods are handy, and many these days are lightweight. Though I'm not sure the one I took is the newest; may of been this trip that started showing the other to be near the end of its service life.
