May 2017 - Phoenix Comicon
Around this time, I was becoming disenchanted with my camera gear. It's not the camera's fault - I was just realizing that I'm bad at taking care of lenses and particularly sensors. I had spots that didn't go away when professionally cleaned. Comicon was my last big outing with the GX7. From there I was deciding whether to go to the GX8 or switch back to a bridge/superzoom camera.
Comicon was held at the Phoenix Convention Center, and I attended with my wife Angelina, and our youngest daughter, Audrey. We attended all four days, and I mostly went to stalk one of my favorite authors, Jim Butcher.

We had a secondary target, Pierce Brown, author of our son-in-law's favorite book series, the Red Rising trilogy.

Other than those photos, I have to confess my heart wasn't really in it this year, as I was deeply discouraged by my sensor dust issues. I did take a few more photos that I was happy with, though.

|Poison Ivy (Batman). She let me know that she was a fellow Hufflepuff upon seeing my house tie.|

|No idea. I'm mostly including this photo because the woman on the right clearly didn't expect to be included in the shot.|
