It’s All About the Photography
So I’ve been thinking as of late that I would really like to add some photography to this site. I don’t know why I have so much photography and haven’t added any at all to my site. Actually, I do. It boils down to laziness and my fondness for all things neat and easy.
Now, I know that you can ftp blogger entries back to your own site, and I know that you can create pictures on your own site, and I know about sites like tripod, where you can upload pictures. But I keep wanting to do something bigger something better, something like “wow!” that would make folks stand up and take notice of it. This is turn, feeds my laziness, which then makes me avoid the topic all that much more (please note prior web log entries concerning ostrich.) So, now I have to ask, what do I want. (Kind of like the old Spice Girls song, “tell me what you want, what you really really want,” I guess.)
I really want to be able to post some photos to the web to allow for on-line critiques. I really want to be able to easily index my photography work, so that I can easily find it, and easily draw it up, and pull it up, and reprint it on demand. I really want a mac with a delux scanner, printer, etc. so I can have a full digital darkroom, which I can use to make prints on demand. I really want a cabana boy who knows how to matte and frame artwork (ok, ok, I can do without that last one.)
What I really need to do is come up with some kind of a plan to make this all happen. I really want to find a website to host this mess that would allow me easy access. Ken has suggested this site and I may check them out for starters. I have to start doing something, because I’m really wanting to put pics on the web. And I really should. Not to “toot my own horn” or anything, but I have some cool photos to share. Seems silly to relegate myself to text-only when I’m such an artist at heart, doesn’t it?
So please, stay tuned. And keep those suggestions coming.
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
