What is so special about this photo?


You may have already seen this, but I just received this via email, loved it and so the post.


If you look closely you will realize why this National Geographic picture (Week 4 of this issue) is so interesting. Click on the image to view its full size.

Can you guess?

AjayDSouza.info Revamped!

Have been meaning to this in quite a while. Had considered shifting over to Flickr to maintain my photo album, but the free service is very limited for me. Additionally I did not want to go in for a paid service because anyway I am spending a lot on hosting of my own.

Hence, I decided to try evaluate the option of using Gallery 2 as the software to power my photo album. I have been using Coppermine for quite a while now mainly because of its bulk import feature.
I had evaluated Gallery but found it rather lacking.

Was stunned that Gallery2 gave me a lot more than I wanted. Especially useful was the Gallery Remote which I have been using to upload all my photos. I have realized however that I need to use the online interface as the remote is still lacking many features.

Anyway, so you can now see AjayDSouza.info in a brand new avataar.
I’m still planning on working on the template to get it done to my liking. However, this will take a while as the software is still new to me.

So do visit my photo gallery. Feedback is welcome. Registrations are not required to view the pictures.


My pic on Forty Faces

FortyFaces.com is a site with a difference.

It is the work of Philipp Lenssen.

When you (actually I, along with another 170+ webmasters) post, instead of the post showing up a picture of yours with a link to the latest post shows up on the main page.

Why FortyFaces?
Because, that is what you see… the faces of the forty webmasters of the last forty posts.

This is my first post there since he added me to the list, so let’s see how it goes :)

BTW. The image you will see is:
