Over this past Labor Day weekend, my husband and I attended MaxFunCon East in the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania. We have been to plenty of conventions before - horror conventions, sci-fi and comic conventions, classic film conventions - but we had no idea what to expect about this one. All we knew is that we were fans of a number of MaxFun's podcasts and the other fans we had "met" online all seemed to have the same creative and open spirit. It was an amazing weekend, and I almost feel like apologizing for wandering around with my Pentax K1000 and trying to make it look as creepy as possible. Almost.
It's the first day of spring, but it's a miserable and cold one here in the Washington DC suburbs. The Cherry Blossom festival just started, but there's no way I'm going outside today. Instead, I reached into my (extensive) backlog of processed but unscanned film. Today's random roll is some Lomochrome purple I shot last summer in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland. On the one hand, I want to get better about scanning and sharing photos in a timely manner. On the other hand, it's a perfect day to re-visit a great Scottish vacation. The photos below were taken ( as I recall) at the Calton Burial grounds in Edinburgh.
