I go through periods where I take pictures. I have since high school. Sometimes, everything just has a face interesting enough to preserve visually. And it’s been too long since I’ve regularly picked up a sketch pad to have all of my skills at the ready. Sometimes I don’t feel like taking shots, and that’s a longer story. Anyone who does art and goes through periods of “down” time where it just doesn’t flow anymore can probably relate.

Also, I am lazy. It is a very good trait for a programmer to have, it helps us.

I have been using album for my current portfolio. I’m starting to feel it’s limits – no comments, no access control, basically it’s as plain vanilla as web pages get. I want to change. I have two choices in the future for displaying photos that I want at least some of you to see from the convenience of your desktop. First, I can use a service like Flickr. That means some else manages it, tracks security, all the basic system admin stuff is done professionally. Or I can run something like gallery on this site, and do the management myself. In my experience, things like gallery tend to be prone to security problems (that was my very mild, concerned-about-professional-image phrasing). I may not find a gallery-like application that I sufficiently trust to run on this site.

Any suggestions?
