because my dad can't self-edit his photo sets down to just the really good photos. I promise both moriven and I have talked to him about it.

Anyway, he asked me to share his photos of the Pirate Festival from a couple of weeks back. [livejournal.com profile] trystbat and [livejournal.com profile] demode, I'm particularly looking at you. I hope Dad wasn't much of a bother.

There's another set, but I'm not recognising people in it. (That's because I don't want to go through hundreds of his redundant pictures. Don't judge me.) Feel free to share the links if you spot folks you know.

[livejournal.com profile] moriven has posted pics on his Smugmug site of the reliquary (aka my liquid lunchbox) that [profile] ermine_rat made me to hold two period glasses I have, so I can safely take them to events.

Rat - the photos are yours to grab.

I have a volunteer tomato growing in the planter where I had a tomato in last year. It did surprisingly well over the winter. I think part of that is because of the neighbor's kitty, Sophia, who incubates it. I don't think I get to plant anything else there, though.

I've had a lot of photographic successes recently.

[profile] morivenhas posted two of my better shots in his LJ. (tiny aside: moriven F-locks all of his posts so that his exwife doesn't troll his blog again. **mumble mumble sorry excuse for a human being mumble mumble** He is happy to friend you if you want to keep up with his photography posts.)

I loved the afternoon light in the hall at Investiture yesterday and I got some really nice shots with it. The site was really nice and I hope we use it again. Hopefully on a day that isn't during a freak May heatwave.

The horsey shots at M-C war were really nice, too, though I wish that the other photographers had not joined me at my vantage point so that we could have gotten the cavalry charges from different angles. I have a tiny passion for seeing Alden ride. Damn, that man looks good on a horse. Zanaida looked damn fine, too.

The visual concert is put on by a pro photographer friend of my mom, John Pearson, that I have kept in touch with. This is the first show that I've been able to attend, since they're always on Wednesday nights. I remember sitting through shows like this in the John and his wife Liz's living room when I was a kid. It was much more interesting as an adult.

The venue and crowd were SO Berkeley. There is a sterotype of older Berkleyans, and these folks were it, man.

The music was mixed. The Cellist... eh. The pianist! The guitarists! 

Most of the photography, except for John's stuff - John just has an amazing eye for texture - I thought "I could do that", like shutt3rg33k. And we totally could. I liked the thematic series, which would mean that I'd need a broader portfolio to pull from to do a show like that. But we should totally do a show like that.
