Origins Photo Surveys

Origins '01: The Generic Pictures

by Mark P., text by Sandy Antunes
July 12, 2001  
So you weren't at the Con. Well, here's the scoop. Every online zine has to do the 'here are some generic pictures of the Con'. So we did that. We skipped the usual ones ("here's some publishers I know so this picture proves I'm cool", "hey, look at these wacky fat guys posing!", "look, Peter Adkison el flagrante!"). Instead, here's just a very short sample of the 'stock Con photos' from Origins'01 before we go into our two cooler sub-features.

First, despite talk of low attendance, lots of people there were lots of people at times. I just found it hard to find roleplayers. The more lines lines weren't long, relatively speaking, and I found the Con staff helpful and, well, abundant. Our secret cameraman was spies were everywhere everywhere, spying on everyone. Took a few just a cool shot cool shots, too. And they had a neat table with origins awards past all the past Origins Awards.

Let's see... crowds, lines, gaming, awards, that pretty much covers the entire show, right?

Our remaining two photo exposes will go up soon. They are "Booth Babes: A Photo Safari" and "Would you send your Mom to buy games from these folks?". Coming soon!
