    Incidentally...

    I'm getting rid of my old Nikkor 70-300 f4-5.6 G lens. This lens is the low-end lens that Nikon produces, but it would be a good starter in terms of high-powered telephotos.

    Any LGK user who's got Nikon gear could make me a fair offer for this slightly-used lens and they'd get it at a steal. Lens is complete, with original box and documentation, along with a Promaster UV filter. Not trying to make money, just trying to get it the hell off my desk.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    I agree with that if you're talking about mostly 5x7s, with the occasional 8x10. But with frequent 11x14s, I have to think it would cost more via paper and ink purchases. (Of course, the cost of the printer.)

    Finally got my domain registered and a preliminary gallery site up:

    Checkitout.

    EDIT: Lightroom's web gallery is wholly inadequate. I am unable to create sets/groups/compilations. Also, you can't individually caption each image. I'm DLing Gallery right now and I'm going to give that a go.

    Very nice images, Glenn! The observatory is such a great subject.

    And was that shot of the little one and the merry-go-round at Valencia Town Center?

    Ah.

    So they both have two-story carousels. Which makes sense since a lot of your pics are in the valley.

    I like it! How hard was it to set up the site?


    And by the way, you mentioned a while back that you wanted to get the 18-200 VR lens. As a person who has used it for more than a year now I have to say it is versatile but not perfect. You won't find it to be as sharp as your 28-200. You will also get noticeable chromatic aberration at 18mm. I would still buy it again just because when you can only throw one lens in the bag, it's the best choice.

    I have to say, it at least looks good even if it currently falls short of your needs. Gallery is cool, it's biggest drawback (if you can call it that) is that it is open source, and there are about a billion different little ways to customize it, so getting it exactly the way you want it can take some time (there is a LOT of "oh, that is cool, not what I was looking for, but cool"). I would keep the lightroom gallery up, and make a new directory where you can play with Gallery for a while. Give it a few days to work out the kinks.

    Wow. The installation instructions for Gallery are DAUNTING to me. I'm not sure this one will be easy enough for me to deal with.

    EDIT: Well it appears I've gotten through most of the installation (with some help creating a MySQL database from my web-hosting company). Now my ftp program is setting up permissions on all the folders associated with Gallery. Taking forever.

    EDIT 2: ARGH! The Gallery installer suggested I change CHMOD permissions to 755, and now I can't even view my own damned website! :( Changing it back.

    EDIT 3: DOUBLE ARGH!! The permissions were so badly screwed up that I had to restore the server to a previously-saved state!

    EDIT 4: TRIPLE ARGH!!! After going through all that crapola, I find out that Gallery is one of the optional uploads to my site that can AUTOMATICALLY be done by my hosting provider!!!

    Teh Interwebz...I hateses it.
