There were about one thousand people in 2009 at the San Francisco Pillow Fight.­ It was a lot of fun like always!

I wish I still had the old Sony R1 that I used last year (an excellent camera for this type of event).­ I used the Sony A700, a generally better camera, but the A700 has no live view and it is not very good at focusing fast and accurately in low-light fast moving scenes like this.­ So a number of my shots were not well focussed this year :( oh well.­.­.­

That's me in that photo! It was at the end of a year away living in London. I stopped in San Fran on my way back to Australia. How awesome, thanks for sharing the moment. I'd love to buy a print :)
