me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
picpages 1.0 released
has been released. not that it's a huge deal, it's just a simple PHP
script and an associated CSS file (thanks eldan!), but it's a milestone:
it has all of the basic features i want and need in an online image
folder. you can browse and surf pictures easily. 2.0 has some requirements
starting to shape up, 1.x will only see bugfixes at this point. the
visual changes in picpages 1.0 are minor when compared to 0.92b.
eldan did the CSS work, and hopefully
you can tweak the output to your needs. thanks to cameron and natarajan
for some help in making the output XHTML 1.0 compliant and valid.
the picture above is of some cameras i used when i was in high school,
and cameras i still have. they're 35mm cameras, and often i wish i could
put a digital back on them (ie attach a CCD enabled back with a CF slot),
since i loved the features of a nearly fully manual 35mm SLR. digital
SLR cameras are nice and all, but i'd have to reinvest in lenses and
the cost would be huge at that point. my s200 has been doing a decent job,
even after being dropped on the ground by me in california in february,
but there are many days i wish i had more control over exposure and
composition. if you know of how to do this, please contact me. since
i started trying to post a picture a day, i'm finding myself on the lookout
again for photo opportunities, and i'm starting to get resolved to make
my photos better. an SLR would help, but it can't replace the spontaneous
shots you can only get with a small point and shoot camera like a digital
elph. and nothing makes up for a photographer with skills.
