On June 12, I led a Street Photography Workshop in Old Orchard Beach for the OOB Saco Adult & Continuing Ed.
After last years super hot, early pandemic workshop, I planned this year to be during an event in Old Orchard: Back to the Beach Corvette Weekend.

The attendees were great and I had one repeat attendee whom I plan to shoot with again.
