Photography Soup (Thursday January 17, 2008)

In today's installment we spin around the blogosphere, go inside the Imaging Insider, and visit a few more local camera shops! It's a good thing we don't have to pay airfare for all the e-trips we've taken ;-)

    The Support your local Camera Shop initiative
    The spotlight segment continues featuring local camera shops, starting with Artcraft camera and digital with three locations in the state of New York. From there we fly north to Northern Vermont where we find the The Photo Garden. We stop by Ben and Jerry's for some ice-cream, before we go all the way to the west for Ulmer Photo in Stockton, California.

    Then we zig-zag back to the east coast - it's a good thing we are not paying for these cyber flights, where we stop by the Wayne Camera Center in Wayne, New Jersey. And then back to the west coast for a shopping spree at Swanlaund's in Eureka, California!

    Our trip will continue in the next edition of the Photography Soup, which will be posted in a couple of days - unless we have major news or rumors breaking out and disrupting our plans!
