Pictures taken at a Steampunk meetup in March 20, 2011. (29 pictures)

The Charles River Museum of Industry holds monthly steampunk get togethers. These pictures were taken on the March 20th, 2011 meeting.

I went in my current steampunk costume as a newspaper photographer from the 1930's. I also used my E-P2, and was trying out the new Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens I had just bought.
