Ohayocon was a great time! Almost like a mini-vacation. Very cool.
I’m currently working on adjusting and resizing the 30+ digital pics we took over the weekend. Until then, here’s a pic I just took of Aaron displaying his two prized purchases: his moogle hat and his Mr. Sparkle t-shirt.
Con pics and a review/narrative soon to come!
Remember how I said after Halloween that Mei likes pumpkin? Well, here are the pictures to prove it:
And, while I’m at it, here are a few more lomographs I’ve neglected to post:
This was the wintry view that greeted me from the window one day while reading in our second-floor Quiet Room at work.
One of my co-workers turned 50 the day after Thanksgiving, so a few of the girls in the office decorated the day before Thanksgiving (after he left work for the day), to make his birthday that much more memorable.
Autumn sunset over south Toledo—Tireman, to be exact.
Before I compose my rant on how wrong I was about the weather last night, take a look at how my neighborhood fared.
I took these photos around 6pm, after Aaron had left for work.
A view from our front door
Aaron shoveled the driveway while I was at work
The front yard, as seen from the street
*this* was the biggest nightmare: braving our unplowed street
So, let’s just say I’m glad I don’t have to go anywhere tomorrow, and neither does Aaron. We can stay home, open presents, drink some decaf, and enjoy the astronomical electric bill—er, I mean, the warmth. :-/
As requested… I have delved into the drumcorps archives and dredged up the smuttiest and sleaziest drumcorps photos of the late 90’s! (And don’t forget… you asked for it!)
Here they are, in no particular order:
Here’s a teaser: just a little midriff.
Mmm, some more midriff. Check out that hot… um, chick. Yeah.
Chad shaved his head for Finals in ’95. That’s sort of “going topless”…
When I think of topless drumcorps, *this* is my fantasy. Mmm… tasty.
But these two fine specimens are more of the reality than the fantasy.
And finally: bottomless drumcorps. Or pantsless, if you prefer.
Finally… pictures from Aaron’s surprise party!
Since the slideshow doesn’t have captions, I’m also posting a Cast Of Characters:
Looks like I need some more practice at full-moon photography, not to mention lunar eclipse photography. Not bad for a first try, though:
If I’d had the digital camera handy, I would post a photo of Mei licking the jack-o-lantern lid and loving it. Who knew cats like pumpkin? Anyway, I took a couple shots of her with the lomo, and I’ll post them as soon as I finish the roll and get the pics back.
Edit: See this entry for pumpkin-licking Mei pics!
Here they are, the photos of the Black Swamp Art Festival. Taken with my almost-trusty Lomo LC-A on Saturday, September 11, 2004 in Bowling Green OH.
Check out this horribly underexposed digital pic of me in my oversized XXL Bluecoats T-shirt (purchased Saturday night) and my favorite shorts (which are now two sizes too big). The original point of this pic was to show how stupidly big my clothes are on me; hence, the goofy “WTF” shrugging gesture.
Also: just went to shut the front door, and caught a glimpse of a pretty cool sunset. Even though our front yard / street isn’t much for a photogenic sunset view, I ran downstairs, slapped on the new wide-angle lens, screwed on the tripod mount, ran upstairs with camera and tripod, loaded up film from the fridge, and was outside shooting sunset photos in about three minutes flat. Used about 14 exposures of a 24-roll in not even ten minutes.
This is the trying tug-of-war between film and digital. The badly backlit photo of me might have been more easily salvaged if I had actual film to scan and work with; the sunset photos I just took might all suck, and I should have changed one little thing to make them rock, and I won’t know it until I get the prints back.
