I spent much of the afternoon with the wonderful Lois McMaster Bujold who is very awesome. Her Nebula's and Hugo's are scattered about the house in basements and guest bedrooms. "My first Nebula I got when living in a very small apartment. I didn't have a dish washer, so I put it in front of the sink so that I could look at it while I was doing dishes."
I was up late last night watching inexplicable British TV with NFG and drinking scotch made before I was born. My body wants to go to sleep right now, but my mind is telling me that the light is really good. There's a woodpecker outside my window. This place is magic. It really is, it's like a city block that got lifted up out of the Earth and hung in some fairy land in an episode of the Twilight Zone.
I've met all the cats but one who is awol in the attic. Princess slept in my bed all night last night and I made it around her this morning. She didn't move -- just looked up and said "oh, making the bed eh? I'll take care of this part in the middle."
dd_b posted these photos of me photographing Pamela Dean (honestly I was doing a bit more drinking than photographing). You can see them here.
Hey, that rattie sitting on your head in one of the photos, we've got one of those! :D
I love photos of photographers doing their thing. And that snakes on a plane t-shirt you're wearing is so killer!
Those are great behind-the-scenes photos. I love the mole rat thing. Her house looks very comfortable, like my mom's house.
Snakes on a Plane! Love the tee, love the pics. Awesome stuff ^_^
That's a treat - dd_b
is a pretty amazing photographer of writers in his own right. (Have you seen his photos of Sarah Monette or Marissa Lingen?)
You have the same smile as the tiger.
Wow, great photo of Lois. I think she needs it to use for her bio's.
So... you travel all over, get to meet and hang out with perfectly fascinating people AND their cats, and have way too much fun doing it, if those pics are any indication. You lead a hard, hard life. XD
You hang out with NFG *and* LMFB. I hate you. Grrrr.
Thank you for sharing the photos - I like the doubled reflections in the table.
yes, i photographed zoe yesterday.
I'd like to see the photos, I slept with her on my neck for a week last year and she was such a cuddly thing. I love the pictures you took of Lorraine.
Lorraine says you are going to shoot her and the Bengals today! Lucky you. Take LOADS of pictures. Please.
So cool! :) Her work is worthy of every award. How awesome to get to capture her photograph.
