At this time of year it is traditional to look back on the year. What better way to do this than with a good collection of photographs – and I do have a good collection for you. In fact several. I’d originally planned to do a series of galleries for the year end but then realised between some profiles and club information we could have a series of galleries all making a different point and the editor in me liked that a lot. So look out for another amazing set of photographs soon.
In the meantime here are some thoughts on 2015. The UK Larpcon at the start of the year reminded me how wonderful UK larp culture is. I’ll be back there in 2016. It was also the year that I decided to start going back to camping events. I’ve bought in more camping gear since then and sense an improved tent by March. I’ve also learned the value of day events and started to join in with more groups. It’s also been year where the combination of health problems and age have really caused me some problems. So 2016 will start with a long term health plan to get me into better shape. I’ll also need to be building in some aids into how I play. I’ll talk about these in over the next year as disability in larp is an important topics.
2015 will also go down I thing when we in the Larp community started to really understand that our hobby is in a state of expansion. It will be interesting to see what happens as the larp bubble grows.
Here at last are the photographs
All of these photographs come from the talented Tom Garnett and are posted with his permission. I would strongly recommend that you take a look at his work – and perhaps talk to him nicely to photograph your event. He’s a wonder artist and man. You can see more of his work at: http://tgarnett.com/
