It seems to take as long to unwind from planning an event as it does to actually plan the event. I attended Oz Comic Con, Sydney on 29 and 30 September at the Sydney Darling Harbour Convention Centre, and I'm only now getting around to sharing the photos of the trip, but these are the tourist photos I took.
After setting up the stall I needed a walk around Darling Harbour and a restaurant had these converted metal suitcases into a counter.
These are photos from outside the Chinese Gardens. They were open while I was inside selling books. A lovely spot to relax.
Caught up with some author friends and Darling Harbour put on fireworks. Yeah, I like to tell myself they did it for us.
Before I headed home I wanted to check out my old workplace. I worked at Festival Records in the sales department from 1993 to 1999. It is still one of the best jobs of my life. It was so much fun to see bands most nights of the week.
63 Miller Street, the iconic home for Festival Records and Mushroom Records is now an IGA grocery store. I wonder if the people who are picking apples and potatoes realize they're standing in the spot where Mushroom Records gave hundreds of Australian musicians and singers their wonderful careers. Kylie Minogue was signed to Mushroom records. She never visited.
The stall was all set up. I had a blast. I'll be back next year.
