Battlefield

Just a pic to demonstrate what keeps me away from posting anything on some weekends.  A mix of pen-and-pencil and laptop dungeons and dragons.  The lap top at the far end of the table, with the additional monitor pointing at the party, is how I run.

This pic was taken during a break.  I am not depicted - those are the legs of my daughter's common-law husband, who has chosen to read a book while people scrounge food, grab a smoke, use the bathroom ...

Fair number of dice on the table.  Can't see mine.

I tell you what is there on the screen: the upper left corner of the goblin fort that the party is still fighting (and resolutely loving it) is the sort of purplish brownish patch ... the mass of blue above it is the party's cavalry, which has just stomped hell out of about fifty goblins.  Good times.

Bonus points for anyone who can identify the photographer of the picture in the back corner.

Ansel Adams.

No, it is not Ansel. Although I do have an Ansel picture, just out of the shot to the right.

I see I'm not the only one that uses a two-monitor setup, one for me, one for players. Really works well.

For a few years I used a digital light projector as the second monitor and had the image on the table. I love the two-monitor set up. I like it so much I may add a third and fourth monitor to the mix.

I would have guessed Ansel Adams from the black-and-white landscape, but since that was wrong I'm going to say Alexis is the photographer and probably be wrong.

No again. I said a while ago that I'm a lousy photographer.

I've learned two things: Ansel Adams is apparently the only photographer RPGers know - and that the picture on my wall isn't particularly familiar.
