Photographer in me

I've taken 682 pictures since Christmas morning.

A few have been eaten by my failing hard drive. A large chunk are just me playing with lighting, or taking dozens of pictures of the same thing. Many are of very stupid things, or taken to test features of the camera.

Even so, I've uploaded several hundred to flickr over the past few days.

I've had to change my uploading pattern of just dumping everything to flickr -- although that would have worked with the 700kb photos that my Kodak generated, I've taken 2GB of pictures in the past week with the new camera. Granted, that will trail off as time goes on, but with so many duplicates and completely worthless shots, I'm being a bit more picky about what I upload to the world.

Of course, with events, I'll probably still upload full sets.

I wonder what I would do if I didn't have a flickr pro account. Hosting 2GB/images a month and having good software for it is hard. I'm glad there's a solution that I don't have to worry about.

I'm in love with my new camera.

resolutions

From manhattan:
Poll #643922 Resolutions

What resolution(s) should I make this year?



You can also follow the meme, but I'm not going to force you to. The biggest reason why not is that I simply don't have resolutions that most of you could follow, and I'm not sure you'll have any for me. Some things that I'd love to hear would be things related to this journal or my writing - I'm always interested in being challenged in those ways. Anything else that you think would help me this year would also be wonderful.

One that I want to do is simply to keep a more accurate record of what goes on in day to day life, with both me and the girls. I also want to get Alicia started in using computers more - possibly getting one and setting it up for her.
