We have long been planning to improve on our existing DrBen.net Photo Galleries, and finally the time seems to have come. After conferring with local wizzkid and friend Kozy wee are currently setting up and testing new galleries with Photos from the Cities of Datong and Chengde (2005 photos)!!
So far you had not heard of him before, as Kozy always comes and goes as he pleases, but.. in his quest to improve his huge website, Doc Ben is always supported by his freelance computer-geek and expert "Kozy" Koos Beens (Groningen). I hear he is possibly starting his own company offering his computer-agility, but … before he will do so – I stopped him in his tracks .. (hihi) and asked him to help out and build a new format for our Galleries. We have long been discussing how one should not be able to save photos from our galleries, and also how the lay-out should be nicer and smoother, and perhaps – we could sell e-cards and prints.
As we are starting on a entirely new Gallery, the city of Datong, the timing is excellent to start with this Gallery Upgrade.
Since our discussions before the weekend the firts photos from Datong (8.2 mega-pixel) have been uploaded to Kozy’s work-server and a first format has been made. Stand by for your first pictures of the Datong (Shanxi) Drum Tower and the nearby Lower Hua Yuan Monastery, the latter dating from the 12Th Century Liao Dynasty that ruled part of Northern China for a while during a temporary decline of the Central Power. Kozy is further working on those major improvements, among which – you will be happy to hear- the possibility to send e-cards of our photos to your friends, family and business relations. How about that ?? Hmm – technically somewhat more difficult, we hope to follow up with an option to order Prints of our Best Photos, and have them delivered to your home or office.
