Project Reclaim: experimenting with openphoto.me


As part of my ongoing Project Reclaim, and spurred on by D’Arcy Norman’s recent post on abandoning Flickr, I’ve been playing with openphoto.me.

In a similar way to the idea behind Unhosted, you bring your own data (i.e. photos) and the application does something with it (i.e. display them nicely, allow you to share them easily). I’m using Dropbox, but you can use Amazon S3, Box.net and more.

I like openphoto.me. I’ve uploaded two sets, one public and one private. The private one is of my children and shared only with family. The public one is of some photos I took down at Druridge Bay yesterday.

Where do you store your photos? Why?

First photos with my new Canon 1000D digital SLR


At the weekend I bought a Canon 1000D digital SLR for £319.99 from Jessops (Meadowhall store) after £30 rebate from Canon. 8GB SDHC from Play.com (£17.99), UV filter (c.£10) and Crumpler ‘Pretty Boy’ case (c.£25). Marvellous equipment for less than £375! More pics to follow…:-D
