You may have noticed I haven't updated this LJ, or Hazel's Picture Gallery
, in a long time.
There's a reason -- after costume_con
, I've been working (off and on) on getting about 20,000 photos (contributed by 36 photographers) posted on the Costume-Con 26 Media Archive
. I'm about halfway through the last day of the convention -- 80% of the photos are up. (One or two photographers' photos are waiting for special treatment, which is why we're not at a higher percentage.) A lot of them need captions, but you can watch the CC LJ for my notices about that if you want to help.
I've also been to a number of conventions since Costume-Con -- wiscon
(instead of Baycon or FanimeCon), Anime Expo, Costume College, Tiki Oasis, Anime Vegas, something at CSU Northridge, and Yaoi-Con immediately come to mind -- and I've taken photos that I've tucked away in my files, out of sight.
The long wait for my own photos is coming to an end. It'll take me a while to launch and announce all of them. But I've only recently discovered another snag.
It looks like after we got back from our trip to Wisconsin in February I forgot to set my camera back to California time.
So every photo I've taken in March and April -- and, for that matter, until mid-August, when I discovered the problem (but thought it only dated from our May trip to Wiscon) -- has the wrong timestamp.
Well, I'll fix it tomorrow! For now, if you want to see my photos from CC26 (even if they're all off by two hours) you can go ahead and check them out. Usual caveats about captions apply. (I'm months behind in catching up with captions people have been contributing -- if that includes you, my apologies for the long delay on that as well.)
And if you want to see all of the CC26 photos, go check them out. Caption corrections for those photos should be posted to my Costume-Con post
on the subject, please, if it's not too much trouble.
Oh, in other news, I have a new car. I've named it "Saltine." It looks like a cracker box with wheels and runs like it has a 4-gerbil engine. Birthday present from library_lynn
. Doesn't count as my mid-life crisis, though -- starting a new convention from scratch apparently counts for that.
EDIT: This photo, taken the Thursday after we got back in February, shows Gizmo's watch, and I can verify the camera recorded the correct time. So the problem didn't happen then. Now I have to figure out what I did, when, to my camera...
I went to a wedding in Arizona the weekend before Costume-Con. I may have mis-set the camera then, and not put it back to the correct time when I returned. Or, rather, I may have realized that I hadn't changed the camera to Daylight Savings Time in March, and advanced the clock because during DST our clocks are the same as Arizona's but advanced it too far. So I may also need to correct the photos taken between 9 March and the wedding. -- Or not; the photos taken during the meeting the weekend after the DST switch seem to have the right time.
