Billy's Brunch - Part One of Three - The Start
Finally - some Billy pics - YAY!!!!!! This is going to be very photo intensive, even though it's only the Billy Brunch (!), so it will be in three parts.

First of all, this is a link to a Shutterfly album containing all of the photos from the brunch, all together: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1at7c¬ag=1 [edited to remove photos of people who did not want to be in it]. With Shutterfly, you can order photos, but be aware that if you order an 8X10 of a photo that is 4X6 in shape, it will get cropped, so make sure you preview it, and re-crop it yourself if necessary.

Second, I've also uploaded 99% of the photos FULL SIZED into the LJ scrapbook. Each of these three entries has a separate gallery. You can get to the full size pf the pic shown by double clicking on any of the pohtos below - they should take you to that photo, and if you click "full size", that's what you'll get! It will also get you into the gallery, which may have more pics than those shown here.

Enough intro! Here is the first part - the start of the Brunch!

[ETA: Yikes!!!! I forgot that posting from the scrapbook means NO lj-cut - SORRY!!!!]

N'aww, that man.

I love how worn that jacket is. >.< My long coat looks almost just as ragged on the inside. I had my grandmom fix most of it recently, but about two weeks ago, I couldn't put anything in any of my pockets, because the holes in them were just so huge and anything would slip to the bottom seam. Which wasn't a real problem, because the back of the coat was all ripped up and I could just fish it out that way, but still, it's not a very dignified thing to have to fish for your keys everytime you need them.


God, that man is beautiful.

*sigh* Such a lovely man. I have to ask...where was Billy when all of you were trying on The One Jacket? That's quite the fashion show! :)

*reddens* Probably wondering what the hell those girls are doing with his jacket! Actually, they announced the winners of the auction about midway through the breakfast, so he was still doing the rounds of the tables - and wondering why the hell the fangirls over there were ignoring him!

*G* He's the devil, isn't he? I didn't realize that my flash wasn't charging back up between shots, so these shots came out dark - but I saved them by going to black and white. Good form from him, eh? *S*

Ooooo... is that one of your pics that you iconed?

Thank you for being so generous and sharing your photos with all of us. From all I've seen, it looks as though it was a wonderful time had by all, made even more special by Billy, and his generosity, and personality.

It's fun to see some people I know in your pics.

Ah.... bless you!

It's been so wonderful seeing these pics of the fans from the brunch and of course it's great you got so many of Billy, too! ;)

Would you mind if I gave a link of your Shutterfly to the Panta_Loons forum? And Robin would appreciate the pictures of Billy with the plaque she presented to him on behalf of the bbloonscharities.
Thanks again for letting us try "the jacket" on. I wasn't going to try it... but ya'll talked me into it.
You made (and make!) a lot of fans very happy with your generosity. :)

Also I thank you for your giving us advice on picture taking... Could I link that helpful advice column ;) as well?

*hugs*
