Meta: Panorama headers, of late (volume, next, next)

I don’t know if you notice but each page/post at this creative life archive refreshes to another (cropped) panorama header.

I have some special/weird techniques for capturing panoramas and then need to remember where I put them and then crop them to fit.

Every few weeks/months, I add a batch more and in this case, I’m getting a *little bit* smarter by naming (the file name that is) something easier to find & making a little round-up so I can find the images later.

None of this is that interesting so file under “site meta annotations / trivia”. Actually, super interesting to remix and use as backdrops etc.

Logistical Annotation re: archive moving & sortganizing

this shoe is made for walking – really, it’s not the best for walking but representing that this site is taking a bit of a stroll

A brief logistical note to say: due to the unique conundrum of having “lots of data” coupled with “rather modest traffic” has compelled me to change this archive’s hosting situation. As such, current run of several months straight of “tidying up the archive with loads of posts” will probably be paused for a little while

You probably won’t notice but consider this a notice that you might have noticed. I would ask you to wish me luck but really, that shouldn’t be required.

Meta: archive fiddling (instead of tea ceremony)

Wiped out today after (by my standards) a really hectic week so I didn’t go with my double darlings to tea ceremony. Had some emotional lay down, bit of house tidying/ usual laundry folding, “Life admin“ list reviewing, and some fiddling with my creative life archive.

Re: creative life archive, still clearing draft backlog (315) & enjoying the process, more or less.

(this composition was made for the #daveo50 series and now I’m #daveo52 but no one’s keeping score, right?)

Next up: a new series/category of “signs in the wild” + a couple more Ayurveda hospital reports from Nepal and Sri Lanka, & notes from a Shodo calligraphy exhibit & more museums.

Reckon ive mentioned before but for me, assembling the archive post is like playing some sort of video game or a puzzle or maybe even watching a TV series… I scout around hard drives and repositories for the items, combine various media, figure out categories, plot a schedule.

And, as “collections” grow from 3 posts to suddenly 7+… I create & nest in a new category.

For example: just finally made categories for “payphones” “postboxes” “currency/bank notes” and “typewriters” & moved posts.

It’s semantic web funtimes w/ clear url slugs & metadata!
