Despite the lack of sunshiny weather, a sizable crowd still turned out. This is looking south on Castro from the southwest corner of Castro & Market.

NetBoy and Kevboy outside the Walgreen's at 18th & Castro. Maybe they went to buy some gum, heh heh.

ESK1MOPIE (left) and bjjoe (right) drove up from the South Bay to attend the Fair.

10. xvii
xvii abruptly stopped smiling just before this picture was snapped. No, really! Darn the autofocusing delay on my camera.

The rarely-photographed gecko (red shirt) is caught unawares by my sneaky camera. He dodged behind the unknown guy in the leather jacket just after this shot.

12. All In The Family
Left to right, Liandrin, Liandrin's mom Kate, and Tigercub. Kate had flown in from her home in New Zealand to visit her son and son-in-law.

13. Tigercub and Liandrin
Proof that Liandrin (right) actually does sometimes go without sunglasses, even during the day.

14. DNAse
DNAse thinks his hair looks poufy in this shot, but I've seen him with much worse hair, heh heh.

The 'legendary' Robey Pointer. Unknown cute guy in the background -- email me if you're him, please :-)

...It's superhomo! Enjoying one of the few moments when the sun was shining, superhomo smiles big.

17. More Castro Crowds

Cutey Greg is the third housemate with orff and vitesse in Mountain View. He works at Google, hence his moniker.

SwingKid, aka baritenor, has long been absent from the channel, but he's remembered by many. I ran into him on 18th by Harvey's.

They looked so cute that I had to take two pictures. hayden, aperture, and Nathan (left to right) can often be found playing volleyball together in the South Bay.

30. Rick-o-lodeon!
