It pisses me off that I am having to add posts to all of my LJ accounts and communities because otherwise they will be deleted/purged/whatever.

You can see how bored a camera makes smudge in the second one! ;-p
All but that one were taken hand-held in low-ish light.

CanyonCat in London!
Hubby and I met up with canyoncat and his wife today in London. We started at the London Eye and then wandered around Westminster and onwards to Victoria.

What with walking, talking, photographing, geeking (sorry Robin!), a coffee-stop (or two) and a meal at Wagamama, we had a great time - I really enjoyed myself!

(The whole set of my photos uploaded so far (including some of the visiting Americans!) can be found by clicking here...)

They are wonderful people - I am so glad to have met them after years of LJ friendship.

No doubt these will be seen on postcards, other snail mail that I send and my notelet packaging in the future!

I used the same portfolio photos that I used for my Moo minicards and Moo notelets (also seen in my Moo flickr set) and that I use for both my professionally printed postcards and notelets and my handmade notelets.

Check out Moo to get your own minicards, notelets and stickers printed! There does not seem to be a refer-a-friend scheme as yet and so you cannot benefit me by signing up and using them but I still really recommend them.

Also, I highly recommend that you check out PhotoBox (who do have a refer-a-friend scheme - PLEASE ask me to email you an invite as we will both get some free prints ;-p ) for amazing quality professional notelet and photo printing.

A potential new revenue stream
I sent an email off to Etsy. I was worried about whether what I was contemplating would fly with them under their handmade rules:
I want to sell my photos, printed as postcards and greetings cards at photobox.co.uk, signed by me and then with description and © information added on a sticker or by hand before me collating them into sets of, e.g. 6 different images and bagging them as a 'pack'.
Will this be allowed via Etsy? I will have taken the photos myself and made the (admittedly commercially printed cards) into sets/packs by hand and further modified them.

They have just replied and it looks like I have a probable outlet for my postcards and greetings cards!
We understand that it can be very hard for many artists to print their own work, so we allow for a third party to be involved with this step. Please just don't use drop shipping, have all the items sent to you, then you ship to the buyer and everything will be fine!

Now I just need to pull my finger out and do it!
So - can people think of other items (e.g. from photobox) than postcards (sets and singles), greetings cards (sets and singles) and maybe calendars that I could consider as future 'product lines' that you might like to buy? Any other thoughts/ideas?

A cool way to browse flickr
This site displays your 200 most recent photos and then allows you to page through the rest 200 at a time - much faster and easier than the flickr paging, to be honest!

Flickr Leech (unfortunate name, though).

So, if I am only allowed to put toilet tissue down the toilet, where can I put the bodily waste that usually goes down the loo?! ;-p

Many many photos uploaded to flickr
I have been uploading a load of photos to flickr from my hard drive (for now - before I start to go through the 51 DVD backups!).

Lots of uploads to my flickr
I have uploaded loads of photos (1151) that were/are on my photo gallery (but not all of the photos that were there) to my flickr both yesterday (105) and today (946). I am still in the process of tagging them all because I used jUploadr and not 1001 (the latter is better / easier to use for tagging etc before uploading than jUploadr) and may be in that process for a while!

Examples:

P.S. I have given up on zooomr (at least until it, well, works!) and am now going to concentrate on using flickr.

New livejournal for photos
This new livejournal community is to replace natphotoblog. Because it is a community, I can post to it without logging out and back in. Apologies for any confusion!

I may try to copy entries across from natphotoblog but I will not be able to copy comments across...
