Fourth Street Photos

The Fourth Street photos show some promise, I think.  And so does the software, though it wasn’t until Sunday afternoon that I got it reliably running all the way through the chain without being kicked manually (does that sound any better than “kicked by hand”?).  Last night I dropped a batch in incoming and crashed, and it went through, and this morning I added a bunch more from the music session last night, and those went through, so I’m cautiously optimistic.

Friday Saturday Sunday

And fish fest yet to come (probably not a lot of photos from that).

Photo Blogging

I’m playing with the ability to post pictures quickly and semi-automatically — not all pictures I take, just ones I select. Photos posted this way will appear in snapshot gallery entries named “Photo Blog mm/dd“.

Vertical pictures are currently being presented on their side.  Other than that, the current collection of hacks seems to be hanging together a little bit.

We’ll see.

The underlying tech: the cheapest Eye-Fi card, home, hotel (Fourth Street) or Sprint Overdrive Wi-fi, ftp upload to a special user under my Dreamhost account, a cron job to pick the photos up and post them to the snapshot album.

Other than bug fixes, planned changes include: RSS feed, latest photo thumbnail in main blog sidebar, possibly creating a blog entry when a photo blog entry is created (but not updated), web access to set photo caption and description (or delete some).
