Grmpfff.. Sigh… What a lousy job!
If anyone of you viewers think I am having a ball in the creation of this website —> You are absolutely Right !! Hehehe.
True, traveling China and seeing and photographing just anything you might like to , whenever you feel like it IS absolutely fabulous.Then, the meeting of new people and the undertaking of new projects related to this site is also.. why: fun and exciting !! Even the food is a huge bonus to such an already lavish trip.. But, however… please keep in mind that not all jobs are fun to do.
Like sorting through thousands of photos , cutting them to websize, copyrighting them and burning them to CD??? These are all quite dreary jobs that ALways take longer than expected. Or more effort …. because I always finish the job !
In other words, website building like this is one of the better pastimes and ways of life. However,
it DOES form both physical and a mental challenge. I am a perfectionist so I must balance between overtime on the computer, housework/business .. and seeing my body and head do not fall apart.
Hahaha. I just started fitness again. This will improve work !
Web-activity: after completing a 3rd CD-ROM with my China photos I had to take a break.
I sorted 2100 MB of photos. At 1.3Mb a photo this amounts to a huge number, and multiple new Virtual Tours for publication online. To name a few: 1) Ming Era City Walls Park, The Red Gate Gallery exposition + new photos of the exterior ( to weave into the City Walls Report).
3) Tiananmen in snow after the worst snowstorm to hit Beijing in 20 years ( the night of 7-8 November 2003), 4) the Li Yuan Peking Opera Theatre.
I also started uploading new buttons / photos to the Tiananmen Square Main Menu Page.
