LISA 2012 Photos

Here are a selection of the photos I took at the conference. Once again, it was great. Unfortunately, I managed to catch a cold so I missed the conference reception cruise around San Diego harbour. Being dizzy and on a boat are not two things to mix on purpose. Img 2490 Img 2492 Img 2498 Img 2523
