Default AlbaCon Pictures

Hans successfully nagged me today about getting my pictures from AlbaCon posted. I'm way behind in editing and posting pictures, going back to WorldCon in August, but since I didn't take a ridiculous number at AlbaCon I decided it would perhaps be easy to go ahead and do that set now. Then, having made some progress, I may be inspired to get back to work on WorldCon.

One of two sets are ready, the people pictures: MoM goes to AlbaCon! Scenic pictures will hopefully come later today.


The full MoM crew at AlbaCon: Laura, Cilla, Anneli, Brie; AnnMarie, Cheryl, KC, Tami

Scenic pictures!
I think I should get AnnMarie's help in properly labelling the buildings, as I pretty much forgot what all of them are.

A few selections

Tromp l'oeil under a bridge - made me think of your home, Lin.

And even more gorgeous pictures! Some pretty special ones (especially the fog pictures) and trust Cheryl to find nice trees and even a critter in every city

That Egg is something pretty special, too!

Oh, Cheryl got a better picture of the scary lady on the "McCaffrey minus Pern" panel!

The building in the 2nd and third unnamed pictures is the State University Office Building. The church in number 4 is St. Peter's. The fifth unnamed is the clock tower of City Hall. The Moonrise and Decorated building shots show the old City Bank building.

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

You only saw the GOOD parts, dear. And you weren't with us when the old bum tried hitting us all up for money Friday morning.

Oh my goodness. Todd's wearing a shirt that isn't red or blue

Cheryl, you should send the pic of Sharon and Steve to them, along with the one from WorldCon (since I never sent it)

Awesome pictures as always

And, for those that don't know, there's a TMBG song called "Albany" that's about The Egg.

Oh great... now I have to see if I can find that song/lyrics. TMBG aren't one of the groops on my listening list.
