Back on track after a few weeks off

28 April 2015 07:25 AM

After a busy few weeks of visiting Queensland, getting married and heading off on my honeymoon, I've finally cleared my backlog of photos taken in Melbourne during April. You can find them in the normal place, on the Recent Uploads page.

Coming up at a future date will be my photos from Queensland!

My backlog finally cleared

31 October 2014 15:09 PM

After a busy few weeks, I've finally caught up with my backlog of photo uploads. You can find them in the normal place, on the Recent Uploads page.

My photos are now four times the size!

After years of uploading photos that were only 1024 by 683 pixels in size, I have now switched to the much larger 1920 by 1280 resolution - the same size as 'high definition' video. Hopefully this makes viewing my photos better for anyone using a larger screen.

A trip to Queensland

30 August 2014 12:16 PM

In late August I headed up to Queensland for a few days, so I could travel on The Sunlander up to Cairns. I'm slowly getting around to uploading the photos from that trip!

And everything is back!

I've finally rebuilt this website, and it appears that all 574 albums and 32,075 images are in their correct places with their correct captions. The last thing to be fixed up is a few dodgy timestamps, and everything should be all good!

Rebuilding the site

4 July 2014 01:40 AM

You might have noticed things are a bit screwed up - I'm currently rebuilding the site on a new server after my old web host pulled the plug!

Getting all of the photos back online is the time consuming part - hopefully everything will be back in good time.

Clearing another backlog of photos

14 October 2012 15:19 PM

I've been rather busy the past month or so, which has resulted in my 'newest' photos on this site dating all the way back to September 20.

I've finally caught back up again, with 180 photos being uploaded today. Nothing really exciting in the collection: just more bits and pieces around suburban Melbourne, a few trams and buses, a look at the plague of gambling advertising covering public transport, and finally some Metcard and Myki rollout progress updates.

 You can start looking through the new photos in the recent uploads page.

July 2012: a trip to Sydney

 A month ago I headed up to Sydney for a week, and I've finally gotten around to uploading the photographs I took.
