A new blog

I spent the 4th of July with Jeremy's family (all 60 of them) in Ohio. It was quite the party and I was able to grab some great shots of some of the kiddos at night with the fireworks. And by kiddos I mean some of Jeremy's younger cousins, as well as the older "boys" lighting off all the fireworks. Some of the pictures turned out great, considering I was just using my hand-held Canon SD880.

Which got me thinking. My friend, Merrick, is a great photographer. He also does a great job of displaying his photos on his website. And what better way to look at night snapshots than on a website with a black background and no text cluttering the screen (ie - not flickr.com).

So with the limited resources that I currently have (time & energy), I used blogger to put together another site to just display some of the photos that I like best. It's not exactly perfect yet, but in the future I'll work at it a bit more. For now, check out some of the pictures from the July 4th Picnic.

If you click "slideshow" on your flickr photo page, it shows them large and on a black background with minimal clutter. Also, I've used a browser plug-in called cooliris that makes flickr and google images look amazing.
