Just got back off the show floor. Here are today's photos!

PMA 2nd Day

PMA in Las Vegas!

Your Mac Life is at the Photo Marketing Association Convention in Las Vegas this week.

We went to a wonderful dinner last night, thanks to Canon. But I couldn't take any pics - After all, it was a Canon event and I carry a Nikon but we had a great time and learned a lot about the new EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR:

This morning, we were up at *4AM* to take a Hummer ride out to the Red Rock Desert, Thanks to the nice folks at Panasonic.

That ain't right. in Las Vegas, you should be going to *bed* at 4Am - not getting up!
