Back in 2010 I added a photography page here. Nothing fancy really, I just wanted to display the latest photos I've uploaded to Flickr. So I wrote some rather dodgy PHP that utilized the Flickr API and phpFlickr. Over the last few years it's started to look a little dated. Flickr has a really nice justified view and I've wanted to do something similar.
I started hacking on some jquery code a while back to do just that but didn't get around to finishing it. And now I really don't need to. For the rather lovely Flickr Justified Gallery plugin takes care of all the things. Up and running in less than 5 minutes.
So now the photography page looks exactly like I've wanted it to for a while now.
(I'd be remiss if I didn't tip my hat to Adam Bowie for the nudge to use WordPress itself)
I haven't loaded actual film in a camera in forever. Kinda fun having to wind on the film to take the next shot. I love it. Now have to go even further old school and go get the rolls developed.
2013 was a good year photography wise. I fell short of my goal of uploading 5 shots a day to Flickr. Proved a little tougher than I imagined in the end.
Looking forward to what 2014 brings, I have a new lens to learn how to use. And I really really must get better shooting at night.
Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2014 finds you happy and healthy.
I'm still working on that second part as getting decent auto focus with the aperture wide open is really hard.
