Social Networking where you least expect it : Meet-up at the Canyon Overlook Trail Western Maryland

Rocky Gap State Park Western MarylandRocky Gap State Park Western Maryland
Last week I was at the Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort at  Rocky Gap State Park on a family vacation. On Thursday 8th July 2010 walked with my dad and my son to Canyon Overlook Trail at the Rocky Gap State Park.
As we reached the overlook we found a group of very friendly professional photographers from the Western Maryland Photographers Association (WMPA)  who were having a meet-up at this beautiful spot. They are all experts and share the passion for photography. They are on FaceBook and this was part of a regular Thursday meet-up. I was so thrilled to meet this group and “liked” their page. No the group is not on Twitter. The Facebook page is a great example of a local niche community.
Some great pictures from the members

I just read your very nice post on meeting up with some members of the Western Maryland Photographers Association while you were vacationing at Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort.

I was not among those whom you met but as a member I just wanted to thank you for the mention of WMPA on your blog.

In addition I wanted to also thank you for including the links to the photos that Marcia and Jim took while on that outing along with links to the photos that were taken by Bill Merlavage and myself at last years World Wide Photo walk. It was very kind of you to have done so.

Thank you,

Flying Emirates 232 from Washington Dulles to Dubai - Review

Emirates flies the Airbus A380-800 from Washington DC to Dubai There was a time that flying between India and the US meant a stopover in London, Frankfurt, Paris or Amsterdam (I loved Amsterdam). However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
