SPN Con J2 oncamera, a photo by KarenCookePhotography on Flickr.

Note:  This is a composite photo made from two of my photos.
The main photo is from either Vancon 2012 or Vegas 2013 Karaoke with a photo of J2 from Vancon 2012 in the camera viewfinder.

Holy moly.  I noticed this morning that one of my Misha photos from Vancon 2012 on Flickr got almost 900 views just today.  I was all, what???!!!  So I googled the photo and found this Tumblr post made 5 days ago with over 17,000 notes.   Sheesh.  I'm a bit flabbergasted honestly.  How is that going to generate 17,000 notes in 5 days?   I love how it's "strange photos of Misha."  :)

Update:  Okay, I found this via someone who just reblogged it 5 days ago.  The original post was made on 4/24, so that was 17 days ago.  That makes a little more sense.  But still.

Update 2:  I swear, Tumblr is so confusing.   Now I'm seeing the orignal post was actually made in October 2012.   So, many months ago.  Still making more sense.  I guess.

Update 3:  And the orignal post has a link back to the one photo I noticed had almost 900 views today.   And that one photo itself has over 15,000 views on my Flickr.  I had never noticed that before (see below).   I saw yesterday that my Flickr site had just crossed over 100,000 photo views.

This is the one photo with the 15,422 views:


A screenshot below of the last photo in the original Tumblr post.

Update 4:   For posterity (whatever), a screen shot of the last 28 days of viewing on my Flickr for that photo.  I which Flickr would provide stat detail further back than 28 days.

As I said at the beginning of this post, one of the things I really enjoyed about the Marks' Panel was how much fan interaction there was.  Mark S. spent most of the time going over to the fans asking questions and/or bringing them up to the stage.   :)

Here are some photos of those moments.

This panel also had a lot of great fan interaction.  More on that later.
(Although I do post a few teasers under the cut.)

Meanwhile....   Richard


... and Matt ...

Below :: Holy biceps, Batman!





Richard's biceps aren't bad either...

Nothing like an upcoming con to get me to finally finish posting my previous con photos.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the Mark P & Mark S panel.  I really enjoyed this panel.  Mark S. took control and mingled with the fans quite a bit, while Mark P. mostly sat on stage taking questions via Mark S.   I really liked the level of fan interaction during this panel.  I think I'll be making a separate post with fan photos from this panel.  (EDIT:  You can find the fan post here.)

Experimenting with some textures and watermarks.  Same photo as previous posted here.

Recently realized that I had not yet scanned and uploaded my photo ops from Vancon 2012.   Here are three of them.  Will get the others up soon on this same post.

Here are the main J2 photos.  I'm very happy with these.  I asked for a J2 squeeze for the J2 photo op and Jared, bless him, I guess likes to take that literally.   My expression in that photo is me exclaiming at how tightly/strongly Jared squeezes when asked for this pose.

Since it's been 6ish months since this con, unfortunately I can't remember any details from my solo Jared and solo Jensen photo.  I also have a solo Jared and solo Jensen where my daughter joined in for a shot.  I'll get those up shortly.  My daughter was waiting off to the side as I took both the Jared and Jensen solos and then she joined in.   That's what I was focused on during my solos, seeing Emily get the opportunity to say hi to the guys.  :)

My question of yesterday regarding applying a vellum texture (I was brain dead at the time I think), started me playing with creating such a thing.   I randomly pulled up one of my HQ Jensen photos and started playing.   And playing.   And playing.

Here is the result (click twice for more HQ):

I love how someone else can see some potential in a photo I've taken that I didn't see myself.   

Just saw this making the rounds on Tumblr.

I saw this photo on Tumblr earlier today and paused on it, and seriously considered sharing it.   I briefly wondered if it might be mine.  But then I thought, probably not because surely I would have shared that before myself as I loved the way his hair and expression is in this.

Then I was randomly clicking through some of my photos looking for something...and there it was!   The version I saw this morning was more closely cropped in on Jared.  I likely never noticed and/or didn't share it because it is likely out of pure focus.  Maybe I'll go search out the HQ version of this to see what could be done with it.  And if I find the Tumblr version, I may bring it back here.

This one is a crop I found this morning from one of my J2 Vancon photos.  I think a fan had asked how short Mark Sheppard *really* was and Jensen got up to demonstrate, with Jared joining in.   

This close in crop of their hands as Jared is lowering Jensen's estimation of Mark's height, gives a whole new perspective to the photo.  Perhaps slanted outside the actual reality of the moment (but perhaps not?)   

In any case, I found the cropped image compelling.

One of my photos just cropped up on Tumblr.  This was from Vancon 2012.   Whoever edited it did a great job.   Not sure if they did more than just turn it B&W - but it looks great like this.

Just found these buried in my raw files from Vancon 2012.  From the J2 breakfast.

Going through the last of my Vancon 2012 photos.  I still have the two Marks' panel to do yet.  I wanted to get these out there.  Our group has a tradition that we go our to dinner after the last panel of the con.  We actually left after our J2 autographs so we missed out on Richard's last appearance as well as the Js joining him on stage.  Oh well.

But, as it turns out we did not miss out seeing Richard one last time.   As we were eating our dinner, we noticed that there was a man sitting at the bar next to us that looked a lot like Richard from the back.   My daughter went up to him and asked for a hug.   We left him alone after that.   But later as he got up to leave he came over to our table to say goodbye and visited with us for a short time.   It was fun chatting with him for a short time.

This is a screen cap of a close up from one of my photos from Vancon 2012.   I'm not sure this will work as I just screen capped and uploaded that cap to the LJ scrapbook.    Hopefully if you click on this image (perhaps twice?  I don't know I've not used LJ scrapbook much) you will see a close up view of those unreal eyelashes.   I am weirdly fascinated with Jensen's left eye in this photo.  The eyelashes, the light reflections in his eye.  

I know.  Strange.  Whatever.   *stares*

Edit:  Another eyelash study below (lol).  Less focus.   Whatever.  Click twice to enlarge.

Okay, now I'm just getting silly.
