Sometimes you just get lucky…

Baltimore is my favourite place to shoot, and I try to get there as much as possible. I go on hunts there about a dozen times a year. It’s so much bigger and more vibrant than the cities near me. And, it’s packed with characters!

In early August, I took a quick trip to the Inner Harbour while the Okaton convention was going down at the convention centre. Okaton is a three day convention celebrating all things anime. Specifically, it celebrates East Asian popular culture and it’s fandom. Talk about a feast for the eyes. Over 100,000 attendees over the weekend. And, from what I saw, most were dressed in character.
