On Monday some of my photos were hanging at Bluestockings in Manhattan. trillian_stars and I went and had a swell time.

I ended up taking portraits of people, like Photobram from the Twitters:
In which I use an entire Chinese restaurant as a softbox.
Today we went to Philcon which, inexplicably, is in New Jersey, and had a great time. I was a little apprehensive at first as it seemed that all my Scifi friends were in Toronto, but I discovered I have many many Scifi friends and only some of them were in Toronto. We had a super terrific time. Everyone on the Philcon staff was very nice. I was on a couple of panels where we talked about art and such, which is one of the very few Scifi topics I feel even remotely qualified to discuss. It just looked sort of like this:

Which is to say it's not terribly exciting to see, unless you can hear it too. But it was great fun to be a part of it.
And then today in the mailbox there was a present from Subterranean Press -- which was a photo that I'd taken of greygirlbeast that she was kind enough to write a collection of short stories and Lee Moyer kind enough to make a lovely illustration to go with. This was the shoot from April where Caitlin first told me about The Drowning Girl: A Memoir and started a whole other ball of things rolling. One thing leads to another....
I was talking to someone at Philcon today who said something like "how do you not talk about the Top Secret Projects" -- and I think really the answer is that you just need to cram one right after the other so that while there's one you can't talk about, there's another one that's finished and you can talk about it -- because you always want to talk about the Top Secret Project, especially when you can't.

There's so much more to say about what happened this week and I find it physically sad that I can't cram it all in here, but tonight's the closing of Trillian's play, which has completed a remarkable string of sold out nights for a little play that fought it's way through the thick with a good cast and crew and tonight they're victorious and I'm going to go clap until my hands hurt.
I believe in you Trillian Stars.
