Every year Lancaster, PA, USA experiences a strange, but very cool, invasion. If you see people in cosplay wandering around downtown, in must be Zenkaikon. The convention, which ran from April 28-30, 2017, brings in a lot of people in costume, and features events in anime’, science fiction, and Japanese culture.
I happened to have my camera at work for a, well, work reasons, and had left it locked in the office. I was glad I did, because on the opening Friday of the convention, I got to take a few photos of some of the attendees arriving, like the one above. Here are a few more.
I have more photos over on my Flickr photo stream in an album.
Perhaps next year I’ll get more photos of the fun, and it looked like people were have a great time. I am also impressed with all the work people put into their costumes. Well done, cosplayers! I hope you had a great Zenkaikon!
I’m glad I had my iPhone with me the other, because the purple coneflowers are blooming in Binn’s Park, Lancaster, PA, USA, and they are gorgeous.
I always think of purple coneflowers as harbingers of summer. Once they bloom, I know it’s getting hot outside. Know the herbal supplement echinacea? Well, you’re looking at where it comes from.
Here’s another one of the blooms I saw in the park.
I like the lighting in this one, actually. What do you think?
I just wanted to do a quick Friday post to share these photos. Have a great weekend!
I remember this day, October 1, 2010. The photography meetup that I belong to had a photowalk in downtown Lancaster, PA for First Friday. I had happily packed my camera, and was ready to go, or so I though.
Yeep!! I forgot my other memory cards! All I had was a 1GB card with exposures already on it. I like to shoot RAW+JPEG, so I turned the file type over to JPEG, and shot that. I was surprised, I managed to get some good shots AND got to play with some interesting ways to post-process them.

Here three of my favorites. The first one is at the top, and the other two, well, you can see here.
It’s fun to go back through old photos and remember the circumstances you recall when you took them. I know I was working in blurry lowlight conditions. I used it my advantage, I think.
Link me a photo you took in 2010. I’d love to see it. Family-friendly and tasteful, please. Let’s see what we were all doing then!
