And to think I was planning to post something every day. Pitched battles with XML during the daytime have kept me from dashing off a quick entry or two, and at night I’ve been sorting through folder after folder of photographs from Australia and America. I’m almost at the point where I can put up a New York gallery, but first had to do something about the tired 2004 design at Detail (ta-dahhh!). That’s the trouble with redesigning: you change one little front page and the whole site needs doing. (For a while I thought about turning it into a photo-a-day site like the impressive Chromasia. Then I thought of my posting rate in 2005, wiped the tears of laughter from my eyes, and went and watched another episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.)

Given how long it’s taking to sort through them, I really shouldn’t have taken so many photos while I was away, but how could I resist playing with a new camera? Especially when it gives results like this:

Chrysler Building Gargoyle

People have been commenting on the death of film, what with recent announcements about discontinuing 35mm cameras, and on the apparent end of the megapixel race in consumer digitals. You can see why. I settled on a 5-megapixel model, not an 8 or 9, and couldn’t be happier—because its 12x optical zoom was able to zero in on this Chrysler Building gargoyle, to the point where you can see individual bricks in the wall next to it, from the street.

Which is why I’ve been taking so many photos. Suddenly, scenes that once presented one or two photo opportunities are now presenting dozens.
