For those of you who have taken the time to go through the galleries and rate the images — thank you so much.  I need more to hit the six vote count and have them appear on the home page.

But already I can see some interesting patterns - namely that the images at the start of the gallery get more votes (up or down I don’t care about that right now) - and by the time the viewer gets about halfway through the New York Places (for example) they run out of steam.  There are 122 images in that gallery and I wonder how many people get to the end.  Right now the images are sorted alphabetically.  Maybe they should be listed by popularity.  Maybe the gallery should be split into two galleries.

I don’t know - but I imagine it will become even more interesting as the votes accumulate.

I’m still being kept busy with printing etc.; but I found a bit of time to shoot with my old Canon A75 with the IR filter held over the lens.  Definitely weird and ghostly.  Will post a sample later.  Right now it’s a bit tough to judge because I shot handheld as the sun was going down at asa 400 / 1 second exposure @ f2.8

Not enough light and definitely in need of a tripod.  But the A75 and a lot of the early point and shoots let in alot of IR.

Hi Dave,
I’ve been admiring your photos and commentary for the past six or so months via RSS. Having just stumbled across this post, I was looking for a link to your galleries so that I, too, could rate my favourites. Yes, I clicked on the link to New York Places within the post itself, but I was wondering if you might add a link under your ‘Pages’ or something to your galleries. Had it not been for this particular post, I’d never have found access to them at all - a major loss, methinks!

Anyway, merely a suggestion to aid new visitors in discovering your work. Did I mention how much I love your photos? :) Thank you for making them available to view, admire and inspire!

Molli - I added a list of galleries to the sidebar at the top. Is that what you had in mind? Dave

Ah, that’s awesome! Now please tell me that wasn’t there all along and I overlooked it?? :)

I’ve just been working my way through all of your galleries. You have some absolutely exquisite photos there!

No - I just put it there at your suggestion. Do a lot of rating :) I really appreciate that. It’s helped me removed a bunch of photographs already so that I think the galleries are stronger. Best - DB
