  • Photo updates (revised - October 2021) ...

    - 8 days ago - 35 comments
    Just missed the 138,000 milestone. The visits total was 138,004 at approximately 19:25 on 17th October 2021. I am still working away with the various backdated images, and I have found some more "missing" images ... this has meant creating a few new albums, as well as adding titles, captions and keywords to the actual images. Followed by allocation to albums (including new albums) then unlocking and finally adding to groups. I have "tagged" the albums I am working on with *New*,*updated*,*WiP* and *done* as needed, these will stay for a week or three, depending on the status. For my ease of access, I sometimes add the albums I am currently working with into my favourites, so the contents of the "favourite" banner on my album home page may get changed. I still have several hundred images to process, and a further backlog of images to upload ... Please stay safe and healthy - keep indoors or follow social distancing rules if you must make an essential trip outside. Wash hands or sanitise them frequently. Cover face - Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when required, please, for not only your own protection but also for others. Make Space ; Stay at least the minimum distances apart (for me, in the UK that is 2m) Ventilation - make sure there is plenty of fresh air That means there have been an average of 1,000 interactions with my photostream each month, so very many thanks to all the visitors and for all the comments and yellow stars. With all good wishes for the new year and the coming decade. A new project was started during July 2020 - images to follow. Plus another one in December 2020 (which should have been in September, delays were not our fault.) Another new project arrived in February 2021 as an exchange with the previous carriage. The transport moves were significantly delayed by various Covid-19 lockdowns. Some images of, and related to, the winter 2019 / 2020 storm season in the UK are in processing. Currently uploading backdated images for various projects. Mainly NSR23 , MSR F62 & F63 and "Corris 17" - as well as various "holiday snaps" and other items of interest, once I have filed them in their albums and added some keywords, they will be unlocked. Apologies, this has been delayed as I have been concentrating on my garden rebuilding project and writing tender documentation. In early September 2020, I re-established access to - and started downloading - several hundred images from 2005 to 2010, almost all of them are related to trips for Esperanto events with my (late) father. I thought I had lost these images forever. Most have now been uploaded here.
