New Pictures

requiem for a dream eye
I've posted more pictures my gallery.

There are some new photos in the Misc. November Album plus new albums for Thanksgiving, graduation, Winter Solarbration (plus Jewish temple architecture and some spooky ghosts), and solstice sunrise with stephanova.

Incidentally, Apple's iPhoto has absolutely horrid cache management. I've got about 3.5 GB of pictures on my computer. I think iPhoto caches thumbnails for all of them plus lots of other stuff. When I download new pictures from my camera, iPhoto uses 900-1500 MB of virtual memory. The idea behind thumbnail caching is to speed up viewing. But when the thumbnail cache gets paged to disk, no significant speedup is achieved and it slows everything else down. I should burn all my pictures (on CD) after the new year.

Since iPhoto is so frickin' slow, some of the pictures didn't get rotated yet (even though I tried). I'll do that when I'm on a higher speed connection.

Yay!! Pictures! Thanks for putting those up. Do you mind if I link from my journal? Also, just for reference, it is Betasso Nature Preserve.

Certainly. Go right ahead.

And yeah... I had remembered "Baneras" when I named the album in iPhoto and then went off that. Google reveals that "baneras" or possibly bañeras is a Spanish word, though my dictionary doesn't have it. Banaras is a Hindu pilgremage site. Thanks for the heads up.

Er... of course! Bañeras are hot tubs. We definitely didn't watch the sun rise from Bañeras, though that would be pretty neat too.

Thanks for joining me.

It would be cool to watch a sunrise from bañeras...

Also, the ghosty pictures of the Bromley are fabulous.

Cool pics! I especially like the frosty outdoor ones. And were those purple potatoes for Thanksgiving? if so, how'd you do it?

You might want to consider Shutterfly.com. I don't remember how much they will let you store there but they have an awesome print deal on digital prints - my company has used them for 2 years now and the quality is dynamite - so is the price! In fact, everyone in my office uses them for digital prints and the gallery posting is just a cool side benefit. Easy upload feature too.
just my 2 cents

Gallery (the code that runs my photo albums) is linked to shutterfly such that users can print photos directly (though most of the ones up there aren't full resolution). I've got my own photo printer and there haven't been any pics I've been particularly anxious to analogize yet.

We make purple mashed potatoes by buying blue potatoes, boiling them, and mashing them. Quite simple and quite beautiful.
