I’ve been pretty behind on my photolog, but I’ve updated it now with pictures from my last trip in December and a couple of days from this trip. More photos to come! The pictures from Blarney Castle this time should be an interesting contrast, as in December the sky and weather was pretty chilly but […]
To the (literally) hundreds of you who wrote in about the broken photos the past few weeks, I’m happy to say that the photolog is back online. It broke because while 95% of Gallery works fine with register_globals off, apparently some bit of code somewhere doesn’t. If you haven’t been to the photolog in a […]
A day at the zoo, yes I’m a little behind on photos. It’s only been 6 months!
By popular demand, the grass picture is now available full-size. I’m curious, what are your favorite pictures? Maybe I could put together a wallpaper pack or something.
The random photos are back. I wrote a quick hack to loop over every photo in every album and read its relevant info into a MySQL table. Now instead of taking a few seconds to get a random photo using the Gallery data stores, it uses a single query and takes a millisecond. Long-time visitors […]
My friend Becca just returned from the Dominican Republic where she taught English at several local schools and an orphanage for a couple of weeks. I’ve read over her notes from the trip and they sound really interesting, I hope she publishes them somewhere. When she came back she brought a “postcard” that was actually […]
The New York Institute of Photography offers firework photography tips and tricks that are a great read. I’ve been thinking about getting a tripod lately, but then many of my photos would lose that distinctive blurry quality that makes them so distinctive. 😉
I’m working on some things so the photolog is going to be down for a bit, so don’t go there. Hopefully some very exciting things in store there.
0-day photos are back, including an especially interesting one of Josh with a nice backlight, and a strange pink photo.
If you glance over at the sidebar, the photolog is now italicized, which can only mean one thing. It’s back! Over two hundred new pictures, eleven new albums, and more captions than you can shake a stick at. Go check it out, and be sure to leave comments. It’s going to be another summer of […]
So you’ve seen the ten that were chosen from a pool of over five thousand, but wouldn’t it be interesting to know what photos didn’t quite make the cut? Here’s the story of the six photos that almost made it: 6-1-2002, Rachel — I really like this photo but it’s a tad washed out in […]
I cannot describe the thrill I felt when Rannie asked me if I wanted to participate in the latest 300 Exposures Project. Well my ten selections are now online. I put a little story with some of the pictures, something the photolog format here doesn’t really lend itself well to, so go check it out […]
The photolog has four new albums and about a hundred new pictures, including some of a family trip, an Apple sticker, a peace protest, and two jazz concerts. I had another very nice post lined up but I forgot that Tantek’s site occasionally crashes my browser so it’ll have to wait until I find some […]
My day in photos: Alfred Hitchcock would cringe. Mmmm, texture. New do. I love the arrow. Flowers for my Mother’s birthday. Blue steel. Not pictured: my mid-term being delayed until Saturday, birthday dinner, evil Starbucks, rude and ageist salespeople, how wonderful this day was despite the occasional annoyance, and my funny elated look from being […]
Got some really nice pictures in the country on Sunday. I hadn’t realized it until I was working on the photos, but the bulk of the pictures on the photolog are taken at night. This fits my personality because I’m very much a night person, but these daylight pictures have really nice colors, so perhaps […]
The photos from last Thursday’s meetup at Brasil’s with the some other H-Town Bloggers are finally up on the photolog, as are some others. It was great to see Elaine, Kathy, Christine, Katie, Robert, and Mike again. There are so more thorough photos (like with people) up at the H-Town Blogs Gallery. Remember when something […]
What happens when three friends are very bored one night and decide to reenact fight scenes from various movies in stop time in a public park? Good question.
Well I am proud to announce that the photolog has reached a great milestone: over 5,000 publicly viewable photos are now online. The champagne is flowing freely at the photomatt.net world headquarters. If you haven’t been in a while, I just put up two portrait series, some fun stuff, and some narratives. I’m looking forward […]
If you had come to the site yesterday, there would have been about 4,483 photos, now there are 4,935. I know I haven’t had much time to post lately, but that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I would espescially recommend checking out 12-29-2002 as it has a real range of every kind of […]
The first of the Christmas photos are up. Expect many many more :). Also I feel the first picture in that album deserves a little explanation, as it is a dump of everything except my laptop stuff and camera I carry in my backpack. Many people often remark to me that my backpack is too […]
