12 of 12 November 08

The 12 of 12 is a fun photo essay project started by a guy named Chad (click link) that I try to do every month. This month I gave myself 10 mins. to shoot around the office.

Crusty! With some odd stuff on the left gained in the transfer. Weird.

Gertrude Lippincott. A popular dancer in NY in the late 40's. I bought this pic on ebay. No relation.

Mac light.

Oops, wandered into the edge of the kitchen.

Pic of my first day snowboarding ever...a couple years back at A-Basin. The keen-eyed viewer (especially a skier/boarder) will be able to approximate the year from the gear.

Old fan & defunct Jersey farm Milk bottles.

Whos that lookin at you in that poster?

Some scripts & books. Fuzzy pic but it was a second try so here it is .

Bob! They just tore down the one near me, gotta go up to Burbank now for my 2-2-2 breakfast.

Check, check 1 2.

Thermal print containing 8 stills of me in the teaser trailer for Evolution, my first 'big' Hollywood job. It's in the DVD extras if you buy or rent it. I really should get a frame for this thing.

Sirius radio. I like the blue glow.

Thanks for lookin. And if anyone knows how to make the pictures in Blogger NOT blow-up super-huge when you click on them, please clue me in. Thanks!

Hi Bill, great 12, the edge of the kitchen shot is way cool, something surreal about it!
(would you believe the word verication to publish this is 'psing'!)

Interesting day! Thanks for sharing.

To get the pictures to be a decent screen size when you click on them, you have to resize them in some photo editor (Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, others). Make the longest side 700 ppi, and set the resolution to 72. Hope that helps.

Or if you upload the photos to Photobucket, then copy and paste the code which has [a href=] (except with < > brackets), into your Blog post... then add width="500" towards the end, like this:

blahblah width="500"][/a]

Depends on the width of your Blog column (you can find out by checking the html in your template). Or just experiment. I know I go 400 for portrait and 590 for landscape photos. Hope this helped!

Sorry for the delay in commenting - jetlag has messed my sleep up for the last 10 days and I've been too tired to get round everyone's Blogs, plus I'm doing NaNoWriMo (and moderating) so I basically have no time at all!
