Do you expect any less of me, really?

Do you expect any less of me, really?

Vegas pictures are up. And at just a biscuit over a hundred. Hey, you should be proud of me! I whittled that number down from WELL over two-hundred and fifty! Granted, the last twenty or so were of my parent’s and their new dog, taking Christmas card pictures after we had gotten back, but still! I cut it in half.

You’re welcome.

So they’re available for your viewing pleasure in two formats. One is a new javascript-enabled format which I’ve been playing with for about a month now which I dig. That version is available here. Unfortunately, this kind of gallery has a few bugs however and can be a bit arduous to work with so I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a replacement. I had thought I had found that replacement in a Flash gallery which you can see here. Alas I have discovered that it isn’t nearly as flexible as I thought it would be and can also be a memory hog, so make sure you close the window after you’re done with it or you might find FireFox/IE/whatever crashing.

Anyway. While we’re talking, I may as well announce that I’ve also been designing a new site to bring together all of my disparate photography projects under one roof. It’s called BlackHole Photography. I still am not done deciding how it’s really going to look and feel. Call what’s up there Alpha. Soon I hope to move on to Beta testing.

Now I should really go eat. Cheerios at 9am isn’t doing it for me when it’s almost 7pm.

Hope all is well . . .




This’ll be short as I am currently just killing time at my Mom’s computer waiting for my photos to download via an INSANELY slow USB 1.0 card reader onto her computer. Whatev. Still faster than zipping all of the 200 plus 5.5Mb files and uploading them for her to download.

Anyway. Well, I’m back. The flight was late but otherwise uneventful. I don’t recall where I leftoff before but I’ll just re-iterate that I had a truly great time and I’ve got very few regrets about the entire thing. In fact, I’m gonna cross post this on MySpace just for fun and because USB 1.0 continues to infuriate.

Well, once this is done I’ll be off home where my normal card reader will make considerably shorter work and tomorrow I’ll be whittling the 200 files down to a much more manageable amount. I’ll announce when and where, but they’ll eventually be made available. Some of them are OK. Some are awful (I was drinking, after all. A LOT.), and some will be going in my portfolio because they are TEH SEX.

And I’m out.


Two Days Later…

Two Days Later…

Well, here I am waiting for my breakfast a couple of days later in a “coffee shop” off the casino in Planet Hollywood called Planet Dailies (DC wouldn’t license “Daily Planet?”). It’s a lovely place though like everywhere in Vegas, I would choke on the prices if I were at home. Eh. It’s vacation.

Mom and I have had a BLAST this far, though other than our occasional meal at the Planet, we’ve been avoiding our hotel. It appears there’s a cheer competition of some sort and so there are roughly ten trillion tween girls running around chanting cheers to themselves with mothers chasing after them freaking out. It was funny. For a while.

So instead we’ve wandered. A lot. Hit a bunch of different casinos and lost considerably more than we’ve won, which is again the point. I’ve truly realized that there is such a place as a PIRATE THEMED CASINO/HOTEL (!!!!!) which I didn’t truly grasp, but I don’t think I’d ever stay there as I didn’t get the enjoyable vibe off of it that I have off of other places.

Ah! Food! More later!!
