Scenes From PAX West 2016!

I finally “cracked the code” that allowed me to download my pictures from cell-phone to computer…success, in spite of Mercury Retrograde!

Please enjoy these select scenes from PAX West 2016, held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington from Friday, 2 September – Monday, 5 September. It was crowded as hell, and the Friday traffic was the worst – we had to drive through three different parking garages until we found one that had spaces left! $27 – $30 (USD) per day, all four days…parking cost the most, I think!

That’s all for now…I hope that you liked the pictures!
