Nalini Singh at Galaxy Bookshop, Sydney

Sometimes I get to crow over the fact that I live in the Antipodes and get to attend signings that a USAian fan can’t get to, like today’s Nalini Singh signing at the Galaxy Bookshop in Sydney. 🙂

The session was attended by a good-sized crowd and lasted about an hour, with Nalini taking the time to chat with each fan. (Among other inanities I said “I hope Elena kicks angel ass”, which amply illustrates the fact that I would be much better off remaining behind the camera and keeping my mouth shut).

Nalini also gave me a welcome heads-up on Angels’ Pawn, a Guild Hunter novella available in e-format. Fictionwise means never having to delay gratification…

Light refreshments were provided by Galaxy Bookshop.

A photographer and a journalist from a daily newspaper were also present; an interview took place after the signing was concluded.

I wasn’t able to stay until the end of the event, so I left at about 1945hrs.

Date: 14 January 2010
Camera: Pentax K100D Super
Lens: Pentax DA 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED

Ambient light unless specified.
Hand-held only.
Cropping and resizing in Irfanview.

Notes: Not many photos made the cut because of the motion artifacts in available-light photography, and the flash stuff mostly sucked as usual. I regret that I didn’t have the wide-angle lens with me; without it I was unable to convey a sense of the crowd’s size, or indeed the size of the shop.
