New Site

I've started this blog as a way of promoting updates to my main photo site.

However, at the moment my main photo site, fotopic looks to be down - permanently.

Therefore I am looking at a couple other options for where to host photos. I am going to have some on my flickr account, but its not the most pleasing on the eye, so will look to have a couple test galleries and see what one I like best in terms of looks and more importantly features.

Even if Fotopic does come back I am going to move away from it as the service now has just become too unreliable, which is unfortunate as since 2005 its been my way of sharing pictures.
