Sarah is off this week - but in order to make it up to you, she'll do Saturday AND Sunday next weekend.
ACEN (Anime Central) is an annual convention of those interested in Anime and Manga, held in Chicago. #3 Son went last year with his girlfriend- this year, I went with him. The collages, below, are from photos taken yesterday. I'm still there today. Yesterday, I took more than 180 shots. I won't shoot that many today - but I'll easily have 250 shots or so when I'm done - lots and lots of blog fodder.
This is an experience which, believe me, defies description. Let's just say that when a good photographer dies ... this is where he goes. There are SO MANY photo ops here - it's almost an embarrassment of riches - that it becomes difficult to pick out the next shot. One winds up being selective - and not taking as many shots as you would think.
The shots in these collages? They aren't the GOOD ones.
There are FACES
There are POSES
And there was one person who stood head and shoulders above the rest
