Sorry I'm late this year. But I was pretty wiped each day and it's taken me a while to get stuff up on Flickr. I have probably shot nothing of interest to anyone but me. But c'est la vie. It was more crowded than ever this year, and if you wanted to go to a media panel in Ballroom 20 or Hall H, that was pretty much all you were doing that day. I couldn't even get into the Bob's Burger's panel (I got there an hour before hand, eyeballed the line at twice the room capacity, and gave up then and there).
I also may not be able to attend next year, due to changes in the pre-registration process (basically, you had to line up by 6:30am, or you weren't getting a membership for next year. I live about 45 minutes away from downtown, and that doesn't count the time it would take to park and walk the five city blocks to the Hyatt). Grump. 31 years of unbroken attendance up in smoke.
Anyhoo. I finally found a new way of taking the infinite-tunnel shot this year. [grin]
I brought a speedlight and a tiny 9" softbox with me to Con, overcame my shyness of shooting strangers, and begged Karen Berger to let me take her shot when I spotted her in the hallway. Mike Carlin clowned around gloriously and made the shot. If you don't know who Karen Berger is, she's the DC editor who brought over the entire "British Invasion" in the mid-80s including Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, and Grant Morrison. Karen was the editor on a lot of their titles. She's one classy lady and worth getting to hear stories from if you're a comics fan.
My friend Ivy pointed out that someone had pasted Doctor Who artwork over the little walking man on the crosswalk signals all along Harbour Drive. Each one of a different doctor. I probably should have gotten a shot of the fourth doctor one with his little colored scarf, but the crowd kept jostling me along. Still a nice little touch.
Ok, ok. Big Media Panel shot. I had to pano three shots off the jumbotrons, I was sitting so damn far back in the room: Game of Thrones panel: L to R: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Jason Momoa, Emilia Clarke, David Benioff, D.B. (Dan) Weiss, and at the podium, our moderator, George R.R. Martin.
You'll probably find this more rewarding if you're interested in what happened in the room.
