Contemplation. Meditation.

It's been on my mind for a while, off and on, and for a variety of reasons. Some of the subject matter, things I'm interested in, check. Opportunities for photography, both sketchbook and contacts for future work on projects, check. Opportunities to dress up, check. So when one of my Muses mentioned a mere week or so ago she is thinking seriously about attending Dragon*Con this year (It's all about the dress-up, don't you know... :D Yes I do, alienorade) my mind started working on this in a slightly higher gear.

If I'm going, it's time to start the process. Contributing factors include things I've not discussed here yet, will soon, and are feeling a bit... strange. Also included, quite a bit that I mentioned above. This morning I skimmed through the Guest List and recognised one name from my Reading List here which I expected to see, and a few others from various areas I am not surprised to see, and one name from that list that piques my interest for a different reason.

Leonard Nimoy is on the Guest List.

OK. Now, Science Fiction is on my Interests list, and Star Trek could be because it's Science Fiction and hey, I'm a Trekkie from the very beginning. I know I've mentioned someplace here on LJ that I watched the debut episode, the Very First Time Anyone Saw Star Trek, in the TV department of Sears after my parents got me new clothes for school and still had some shopping to do on their own.

So does it surprise you to hear there is a totally different reason I'd just really like to be able to ask Mr. Nimoy for an autograph? Or two.

Yes, there is, Oh My Readers, Mr. Nimoy is an accomplished photographer of The Human Body. I've got a couple of his books. I would really like his autograph on those books.

So. What do you think, Oh My Readers?

I think, "Oh, HELL yes!" Frankly, I bet he'd be thrilled to be asked for an autograph on his photography books. (Me, if I had the chance? I'd tell him that I saw him in Theo more than 30 years ago, the first adult stage performance I went to on my own, and was entranced.)

If you have the finances to attend, by all means bring the books - and your camera for a necessary happy snap with Mr Nimoy. I think he'd appreciate being popular for reasons unrelated to his TV work.

Have a lovely day! :-)

I say if you can swing it, go. :) It's a lot of fun and life is short.

Dragon takes planning.
Ask S&K... also ask Thadeausfavor. They go every year.
You could spend the entire con just standing in a lobby taking pictures of people.

S&K is a good suggestion. I've thought about the making photographs angle before. *G*

But the Dealers and Exhibit halls, (different things) are worth the price of admission. Art Show can be hit or miss, dependant.

Mr. Nimoy's photographs do indeed rawk. They are exquisite. And while it is a very minor point, I could even tell him he and I photographed the same person, on different occasions.

Oh my gosh...you have to go. If you have the chance to meet one of your heroes & thank him in person, you absolutely should do it. We become the people we are for a lot of different reasons...if Leonard Nimoy was really inspirational to you at a formative period in your life, then you have to let him know & thank him. Trust me on this. ^_^

Considering your recent post about Makoto Nagano? Says a lot, that does.

I didn't come across Mr. Nimoy's photographs until after I'd been working for a good while. First 'introductions' were the original Star Trek, and while Spock is an important character, I won't claim he was my primary favourite one. Still, this is somewhat moot since I do consider his photography an influence on one of my primary interests.
