    And in related news, Regina Myer is leaving BBPC. Will be interesting to see what this means for the future of the skyscrapers in the park.

    None at all. It wasn’t a personal decision.
    As to the topic of the post, are the exhibitors still going to be in cargo boxes at the new location? I find that unpleasant enough to skip Photoville most years.

  • Claude Scales

    If you follow the “More information here” link, it says the exhibit will be in “55 shipping containers”. Sorry.

    Thanks, Claude. Having criticized others for not clicking on links for a full understanding, I apologize for being that guy.

    No worries. Keep up the good commenting.
