You're in a 10x10' hotel lobby. The wandering monsters table produces (rolls dice) Becky, Jelousy and Metamorph.

The only salvagable part of a shaky-handed photo of Cliff: a detail of the sacred heart he wears.

Much better picture of Cliff. Yes, Rafe tends to get in front of my camera pretty often this weekend. Cliff and I didn't really connect this weekend... not really the fault of either of us. I was running around a lot, there are plenty of people I didn't see much of.

It's 2am now. I dunno what to say. Took the photo, the greengrain kinda ruins it (tried tweaking it by toning down the green 26% and the blue 48%). The natural position of the four elements make it interesting, but I'll have to find an art student to tell me why. Best viewed at half the size.

Archie McFee's, and what we found there: - ? found a china umbrella and pirate's handbag - ? found a rubber chicken and crown of the gourd queen - Astrid found the Jesus action figure (from TrainUpAChild.com) - Monica found the Syphilis lunchbox and wobbly-headed devil - Krista found heart deedlyboppers and rabbit ears - Rafe found something very small, so he's holding my fallout shelter Luckily I didn't get hit by traffic taking this photo

Should you be in Seattle, get a taxicab ride at least once from this man. He gave us a lift from Archie McFee's, telling us stories about the building we passed and the city itself... if we weren't leaving on a late night plane, I would've called him to give us a lift to the airport. Do I remember his name or number? NO, damnit. I asked for his card and got it, too. Well, call Red Top taxi and hope he's the one that gets the call.

Fashion show. I thought the runway was poorly lit anyways (I was wrong, but no great loss because) and so many people were already taking pictures that I could afford to be the one camera that doesn't. So I took pictures of the audience. A bit of a failed experiment, but it's something I still experiment with (like C00006).

Same technique as E00004, but not nearly as effective when the camera is pointed at right angles to how everyone is looking.
"sunday townhall fashion_show crowds"
e00035-
Little did I realize that the best fashion show photos would not be on the runway, but behind the audience as the models get some fresh air but don't bother getting out of the outfits. I cursed and cursed when I hit the end of this roll at a bad time. masque tells me this is gothbitch/Amanda.
"sunday townhall fashion_show gothbitch"

I don't think Sunny walked the runway at the fashion show (masque says she was, right after gothbitch), she might've been at the ticket stand all afternoon. That would've been a waste.

Half this picture was over-exposed, so I just cropped the part with Scary Lady Sarah, but she was pretty dark, so I greyscaled it, tweaked gamma and contrast, and tried a wax coating filter (like I did with a00008). It's not bad.

Yay! Natalie posed for me. Did I ask for a name? No, and the contrast on her dress blends into the background. I'm so very critical of myself. Really, she looks good in a 19th century french kinda way.

Why don't people wear more red in the goth scene? I mean, it fits the colour scheme... hell, each primary colour does well with black. Lord Angel identified Rose, and said he can find out the man's name.

f00008_tilt-
Here you get to see the original picture, and what I cropped out. I don't always crop out that much, but I figured I'd focus on one person. The original was tilted because I took the photo without looking thru the eyepiece. I played around with this, and Sarah said "hey, that looks cool." I agree.

Grrr, someone walked in front of me. I've noticed that if you close one eye to look thru the viewfinder/eyepiece of a camera, you lose your prehipheral vision, and your awareness of the world around you. The worst case of this is when the flash goes off, but the photographer doesn't notice because the SLR camera 'blinks' during the flash as the mirror swings out of the way for the film to be exposed. People sometimes back off, or otherwise try to stay out of my way when I point my camera. I always tell those people to stop being silly, because I never want to impose (unless I do, in which case I'll *shove* you out of the way). His leather jacket looked cool; maybe it's the Front242 reference that seduced me.

Once again, the best photos are caught outside the r instead of on the runway. Cute little leather number, cute little Sanrio kittycat. Oh, that reminds me, I saw a gothed up Jigglypuff pokemon in this room. So cool! Whose idea was that?

This picture is larger than the others (four times as large as my usual square pictures!) because at 400x400 there isn't enough detail to see Hardrock and Algernon in the background. They're the only two I know the names of in this photo. Ooog. (Carla Holley identified the couple on the right: Ben/Empty and Andrea/Princess, who married during the year following and moved to Seattle) I like the perspective of the road, and the vanishing point that is visible off-centre (pixel (455,280)) with all the lines pointing to it in the picture.

The image of a goth freak in a suit, sitting in a desk in what looks so very much to be a practical business interaction... well, it was too good to pass up. The concierge(s) at the hotel, by the way, were always polite and helpful and were never at a loss whatever questions we asked or assistance we required. They kicked ass and didn't even blink at our unusual attire. _Very_ professional.

Algernon. 'Nuff said.
"sunday hotel algernon"
f00017_large-
Algernon, larger for him, suitable for framing. The original is actually 1024x1536, three times the size of this (six time the size of the usual pictures on this site). I can get prints of these pictures if anyone likes, but you're probably better off asking for the originals and printing them on photo-quality paper at your local expensive copy shop.

TJ posed for me in the hotel lobby. Wonderful jewelery and hair, which didn't show up beacuse I was slightly out of focus. *sigh* I shouldn't beat myself up over these things.

I adore digital editing. The woman's face (in white makeup) under the umbrella had turned very very blue with the sunlight through her umbrella. Experimenting, I split the picture into it's red, blue and green components, and cut-and-pasted the green component for her face into red and blue, and recombined. The effect was a tintless (and colourless) face. I cut-and-pasted her lips from the original so her striking red lipstick would survive. The lengths I go to to preserve the proper use of whiteface.

Excellent! Didn't have to mess with this at all, and it had the desired effect. You can see the line-up we were forced to endure. I can identify Greg and Absinthe at the left of the picture.

Marilyn and... oh my goodness! I've got to go to my C3 photos and I'm sure I'll identify this person. Is it Ratty/Tamera ? (Amy Lyn says it isn't.) (Carla says "Marilyn is Jennifer/Jen/Satan's_Sister/Stillbourne. Her friend is Christina 'Christi' Milton, arteest extraodinaire. These two are inseparable friends, Christi loves to play dress-up dolly with Jen [as her doll?]. By the way, Jen just got married to the lovely Jamie ( e00006 and b00009 )."

Lovely photo. I've got the original around somewhere here if anyone wants to make a print. Chelsea is still a PVC angel, and the couple I've seen before in the hotel... still looking good here. Trid spoke up and identified himself and Madame Archel (and corrected me with "oh yeah, and the name of the luscious vinyl vixen is Chelsea... not Jessie."

An off-hand shot, I don't think much of it, but Sarah says it's good, so maybe she sees something I don't. Good makeup on him, but pity you can't see the rest.

More good-looking humans in the lineup crowd. I like the faces I caught in the background of this shot. The monocole'd man on the right is SmartPatrol, another photographer, who used to live in Waterloo just after I did, and now he's in Vancouver (www.gothic.bc.ca). We exchanged cards, and I think I lost his for a while. Thank goodness he saw this text and mailed me later. Michael Barrick also had more to say: "The faces in the background behind Morgan are Miss Nicole (red bob), Michael (me!) beside her, and the bald person half obscured by Morgan is Myriam. Dwight and Melanie from [b00012b] are hidden behind Christian and his girlfriend (sorry, I forget her name)".

Aaron's brother, another attempt at restoring colour. The original photo is pretty horrible with grain, but I _have_ to rescue this. Aaron needed a photo of his brother and told a crowd of people "Hey, Mozai's a photographer!". If I was thinking straight, I would have taken him into better light, like that time I had to shoot a woman's corset so I dragged her into the men's bathroom.

Aaron, costumed as 'the Death of the American Farm'. Hey, my favourite dead thing costume was my Atari t-shirt and nobody minded. He also said it was an experiment to see how people, who complain about prejudice because they look different, would react to someone who looked different.
