B&W Arena Construction Photoblogging

In case you’ve forgotten, I am objectively pro-black-and-white…

The Return Of Arena Construction Photoblogging

The sad thing is that the arena is actually finished now.  These photos are from almost a full year ago, that’s how long my photo-processing hiatus has been.

The Return Of Netroots Nation Convention Center Photoblogging

Okay, I think this is the last of the convention center photos – next up, the closing keynote.

Pretty damn cool, as elevators go.

A nice empty corridor.

Umm… Ceiling thingy? Possibly the underside of the escalator.

Hey, look who beamed in! Uh, twice, apparently.

Still More Netroots Nation Convention Center Photoblogging

Yes, I still have more photos of the building…

For those of you new to this blog, I really like shadows.

Mystery Stairway!

I am fascinated by the upper reaches of the main halls.

Netroots Nation Arlen Specter Photoblogging

Hey look, it’s my new *cough* Democratic senator, Arlen Specter! He actually made a very good case for himself, provided you don’t know anything about his actual legislative record.
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Arlen looks out at the audience and wonders what he’s gotten himself into.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Reviewing his index cards.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Behold, he smiles!

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
If I blow this up all the way, I can almost read his index card, but it’s just a little too blurry. Phooey.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Arlen gestures very sincerely.

Netroots Nation Convention Center Photoblogging

The five of you who read my blog regularly know that all these people pictures I’ve been posting from Netroots Nation are totally out of character for me. I’m much more comfortable walking around taking pictures of the building itself. Like so:
* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Yes, I was taking pictures of the ceiling during the opening keynote ceremony.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
The railing on the stage right before Bill Clinton appeared. Although I assume it looked pretty much the same after he appeared, too.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
Chairs waiting for Mike Lux, Tanya Tarr, and Howard Dean.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
This was on the other side from the main hall where the keynotes were. I guess it’s basically for storage and spare parts.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
It looks a little bit like the inside of an alien spacecraft…

I still have some crane photoblogging left to do, but after that it’s going to be all California for a few weeks.

One of those overhead latticework sign-holding thingies reflected in a tanker truck. Would have liked to have done more with it, but I only had time to grab a shot or two before the light changed.

* WPG2 Plugin Not Validated *
More arena construction. Not sure what those strips hanging down are for.

A crane underarm, to the extent that cranes can be said to have underarms.

What can I say, they’re photogenic. I just wish my autofocus hadn’t decided that the backdrop behind the drummer was more interesting than the drummer himself…

The Pittsburgh Boilermakers were at the Three Rivers Arts Festival. I’ve liked them ever since they played at a friend’s swing dance birthday.
