Lakeland 2011 figure competitor Shots from the 2011 Lakeland , held September 10, are up on the site.

Crossing a stage that was brilliantly lit by more than a half-dozen Mason jars containing a dead firefly each, the level of competition was nevertheless outstanding.

I also ran in to Melissa Babers who has been somewhat scarce of late while she attends to frivolous pastimes such as raising her child.

We did a mini-shoot with a competitor she was training and with luck I’ll be able to persuade Melissa to take some new shots for her page later in the fall.
