Hint: When you click on your first picture link, don't close the window, I've designed it so that you can leave that window open, and you can click to your heart's content, and the images will only show up in that one other window. This should also speed up your visit here. So just open up my DC2000 web pages, and leave the picture window open, it'll seem like the photos just magically appear as you click about the photo album here.


Dragon*Con is a 4-day sci-fi/fantasy/comic/gaming/video convention held in Atlanta, GA. This year it was held on the pre-July 4th weekend at the Apparel Mart/Hyatt/Merchandise Mart, all of which are located downtown and within 2-3 blocks of each other. Just like last year, it was a pain to have to walk all over creation to get to the panels I wanted to attend, but the convention planners put all the panels in the Hyatt hotel, as well as most of the programming. I hear next year everything will be under one roof, and on Labor Day weekend, so hopefully less walking will be involved in attending Dragon Con 2001.

The art show was still located in the Merchandise Mart, and I totally forgot to make the trek over there (Again!). The Dealers Room and the Walk of Fame were located at the Apparel Mart. This year's arrangement allow me to show up early in the day at the Apparel Mart for a quick perusal of the Dealers room and Walk of Fame, and then spend the rest of the day at the Hyatt where the panels and track programming were held. There was plenty to occupy most of my time for the four days I was there this year. Yet again, since I didn't attend any of the other major comic-related conventions this year, I had to make the most of what Dragon Con had to offer.

This year I bought a digital camera (Olympus D460Z), a 64MB Smartmedia card, and 3 sets of 4 AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, so I was armed and ready for whatever showed up at Dragon Con this year. The idea of having unlimited film (more or less) at a convention is truly frightening, and this webpage is a direct realization of that concept. I even took some real film photos for the conventional scrap book, and I still managed to shoot about 6 rolls of film. But the time saved in scanning real photos and price of film developing made the digital camera a worthy purchase. I have finally scanned/uploaded the film photos and incorporated them into their respective webpages.

Note: In order to make this page fast-loading, I've kept graphics to a minimum, and the photo descriptions will be displayed when you move your mouse pointer on a given photo link (if there is a worthy description to be added to the link - I will do this as I get time to add in comments or identifiers). If I included thumbnails, you all would hate me for making you slough through hundred's of little bitty pix and slowing you down. Trust me on this. I think most of the photos are worth a look. But I'm biased! Heh.

I know this isn't the prettiest website out there, but I hope to make it up in content. I think there's over 1300 photos on this webpage! Enjoy!
