Got home yesterday night from the 70th World Science Fiction Convention, Chicon7. Attended some panels, chatted with some wonderful people, got some books signed and made a few purchases in the dealer's room. Also did some supporting for some bids, saw the opening ceremony and had a great dinner at Lou Malnati's with some of the Fluorospherians of Making Light.
Should have taken more pictures, alas. Here's a bit of what I got on the train trip there and at the con.
|I was on the Southwest Chief, but this poster was near my compartment and|
I thought it was cool. Also, may just take this train up and visit with
some friends in the Seattle area someday.
|Somewhere in New Mexico - wish the layers of rust and umber stone on those buttes were clearer,|
they were really beautiful
|This is from the next day when we were way up in the mountains in Colorado. The highest we got was over 7,000 ft.|
The contrast between the red stone of the desert and the beige of the mountains was what interested me.
|View of Chicago at night from the Marriott, which was very near Lake Michigan.|
