There were fire trucks and ambulances outside of the Seastar building! I saw that people had evacuated the building but nothing else. I took a few pictures, but noticed how interesting the bokeh was as the camera was trying to focus. I decided to turn off auto-foucs and manually stay out of focus for the picture. And I like it. :) I think this image turned out more interesting than had the image been in focus.

These are buttons I got at PAX this weekend. There isn’t really a story behind this picture. However, I did find it difficult to get at least one button in focus and attempt to follow the rule of thirds. Even though the buttons are close the center in this image, I still like it.

It was getting late. I needed a picture. I’m pretty sure I haven’t taken a picture of the chatpad yet… This picture was taken with my lamp on, it ends up providing a warm glow. When I have the ceiling lights on, the colors are more realistic. But I really like the warmth from lamplight.

Today, I walked around the Halofest area with my DSLR. There were minitures setup up around the area ans they were so incredibly detailed that it was a lot of fun to take pictures of. Every possible angle showed something different. Here is just one. but there are a few more on my flickr page.

It’s PAX (Day 2) and I have my DSLR this time. We walked around the Skyrim space and I took pictures of the setup from lots of different angles. I picked this image to post because the lighting was the best here. In many of the photos, the head of the dragon was overexposed because there is was a spotlight directed on it.

We took a quick sweep of the show floor at PAX before the Assassin’s Creed panel. This was one of the first statues that we ran into. All I had was my point’n’shoot today. The flash went off for this photo which took a lot away I think. I think quite a bit of depth away especially.

As part of my sewing marathon from the weekend I made Ilomilo stuffed animals! I brought them to work today to decorate my desk and apparently it was a hard enough day for them that they needed to get into the tequila…

I don’t consider this a really good picture, but all the other pictures I had were just as bad. There were a couple that I thought could have been nice (I thought the composition of the photo was better) but they were out of focus.

Wrigley graduated from puppy school today! He even got to wear a hat! However, I’m pretty sure he looks like the saddest dog ever wearing this hat.

He refused to look towards the camera, and when I moved around him, he turned as well. Wrigley is definitely not the easiest subject to take a picture of.

After all the events I’ve been to at the Convention Center, I had never taken a stroll through Freeway Park. Today, it was sunny, and I was still at Gamefest so I decided to take the opportunity to wander around. I was so glad that I did! It was awesome out there! It had such a unique feeling, having all those trees around, but then tall buildings right there next to you. I didn’t spend a lot of time in the park, so I guess I’m going to have to go back at some point to explore some more. :)

I was a little disappointed that the sky was washed out. I should have brought my polarizer. Post-processing didn’t help the color of the sky.

Tonight, was the Gamefest mixer. There was lots and lots of delicious food. They had people making sushi right there in the room. :) Not pictured is the grill where they were cooking kobe beef sliders, also delicious. I’m pretty sure I gained 5 pounds just from gamefest food…

I only had my phone at the time so there isn’t anything particularly awesome about the photo. I wanted to get the sushi chef in action, the lighting wasn’t very good, nor was my phone for any sort of action type shot.
