Other than meeting friends .... my greatest joy at conventions has been documenting via photography. I started out taking film and eventually moved to digital.
Here are some of the many, many images that I have taken.
1999 — this was the first west coast convention ... and the first really big convention I ever attended.
2001 — Once again, the Pasadena Con was a blast and I took a number of pictures of both the fans and the stars. When possible, I obtained permission from folks to put their picture up on the web. If your photo is up here, and you don't want it to be, please contact me and I will take it down immediately with the greatest apologies.
If you know the names of folks in the pictures, please let me know and I will put the appropriate captions.
Please note that these images are going up very slowly especially as I have another 8 rolls to pick up from the lab. So far the lab has processed my film at the wrong ASA (thus the funky colors and the too dark images) and lost a roll of film.
That teaches me not to go through my local lab.
