Other business brought me to downtown Saint Petersburg this afternoon, but fortunately it was photography business so I had my Nikon D300 with me and even my Nikkor AF ED 80-200mm f/2.8D lens attached as I surprisingly witnessed great waves of participants in the Breast Cancer 3-Day event.
The participants were very friendly and not at all camera shy as many who saw me turned and waved. As I left the area I could hear in the distance the rousing closing rally. At this time an old woman said to me, unprompted, that they had raised $3 million over the three days. It made me think, "wow, is St. Pete rich as the population here is actually small."
