Still Life with Tourist

One thousand, one hundred and twenty five photos.

One thousand, one hundred and twenty five photos.

No wonder my index finger fell off.

A few warnings:

  • These photos are not yet captioned. I am going to do this, but for the love of god, not tonight. They’re roughly sorted by location, but if you’re looking for any kind of context, you might want to check back in a few days.

  • For some reason, the orientation on some of these photos is off by 90 degrees. Dunno what’s up with that. (Well, I have my suspicions, but they’re geeky and boring and irrelevant.) I’m fixing it. Slowly.

  • The problem with taking 1,125 photos is that you then have to sort, crop, rotate, resize, rebalance, touch up and occasionally outright trash… 1,125 photos. So I apologize for the worse than usual quality-control issues here. I will probably try to produce a “best of” gallery for the family. Later.

  • If stuff is loading really, really slowly, please back off and try again later. This is just my DSL line here. Have mercy.

A few lessons learned:

  • Time spent making sure the camera is parallel to the horizon is time well-spent.

  • Unless I’m shooting cloudscapes, keep extraneous sky out of frame lest I be called upon to crop it later.

  • That through-an-open-door-or-window shot I’m so enamored of? STOP THAT. Sheesh.

Yes, honestly, I will finish up the travelogue this week. But not tonight: unconscious beckons.
