When I packed for the BlogHer '08 conference in San Francisco, I decided to bring along both my Olympus Stylus 790 SW and my Panasonic Lumix FZ20. I had this idea that I would do my drunken, willy nilly shooting with the small and durable Stylus, and that I would take time to shoot much better photos sober with the Lumix. I was obviously (drunk and) filled with the bevolent spirit of wishful thinking when I packed my suitcase before heading to the conference.
I spent the entire weekend hauling my heavy-ass laptop around, and so my larger Lumix never even made it out of the suitcase. As a result, I ended up shooting what photos I remembered to take with the Stylus, a pocket-sized camera with which I am not overly familiar. Translation: I shot every single photo on the "available light" setting and was often tipsy enough to forget to hold still while I snapped.
Welcome to the fuzzy and grainy shots of the few people I remembered to snatch pictures of in between cocktails at BlogHer '08. (Links to the individuals' websites are listed below their pictures).
