Crimefest through a camera, Philly through photography

High up in Philadelphia
I bought my camera a year ago today, so here's a photo post, some from the recent Crimefest 2015 in Bristol, others from where I spend my time between crime fiction festivals, all photos by your hunble blogkeeper..

I hope Medina and Whitney worked out their issues...

With all due respect to the high quality of your photography I wish you'd get back to alerting me to foreign noir and good crime writing in general. I'd especially like to read your thoughts on Australian writing.

John, this photographic hiatus is due in part to my recent reading of Indian history, including one weight volume of about 750 pages. That means I've read less crime fiction than usual the last week or so.

But my next post, today or tomorrow, will likely concern a Canadian crime writer living in Australia who sets the novel in question in Yemen. He lives in Western Australia, where you'll also find another author I'd recommend: David Whish-WIlson.

Seana: I don't know if they had any. In re my sudden apparent concern with hair, the views I got when I lined up shots during the panels kept reminding me of two commonplaces one hears when talk turns to who reads crime fiction and who attends crime conventions. The bulk of readers, one is often told (citing I don't know what evidence) are women, and where are all the young readers at these conventions? I never thought about such things much until the issue materialized in my viewfinder.

Seana: I thought they were smiling at each other, and, given the subject of the other Crimefest picture, is probably why I read your comment as “…worked out their hair issues." I can assure you that if they had any differences, these were not apparent during the panel.

Yeah, I didn't really think they had issues,hair or otherwise--it's just an odd moment that was captured.

I thought it must have been a witty remark that one of the two or someone else on the panel made. I suppose one might detect a raises eyebrow on Rebecca Whitney's face.

I had not known either of these authors before, and I still have not read them, but Katie Medina has an interesting background: She works or worked for Jane's Defense Information Systems, where her work included investigating land mines in Cambodia. I think this was the source of her first book.
