Messing around with the site

You may notice that I’m messing around with the site design quite considerably. Sorry if the (possibly temporary) lack of readability offends anyone. I’m just getting bored with the old design, and playing around with using CSS to do all the layout. Please stay tuned.

Redone my favorites

I’ve spent a little time reorganizing my favorite photos. This is something I’ve been planning on doing for a while. I’ve tried to find a rought categorization for it all, based around architectural, object and people shots. And I’ve really tried to cut stuff out. But I’ve still ended up with over 150 shots. I think my bar for “favorite” may still be a little low…

Trying something new

OK, after a long period of extremely manual album making, I’m finally trying something more automated with this series of shots of the towpath outside our house on a frosty day. I’m using a tool called JAlbum which alows the creation of complex templates from which you can publish your pictures.

Thumbnail generation is automatic. Sub-page generation is automatic, and they have a whole set of tage you can use to set up the pages any way you want. It’s a bit like MovableType for images, but feels more flexible (to me) then MT for handling albums.
