Some more pictures that I took over the past few months that I didn’t feel were quite up to my flickr standards, as I’m trying to get a bit more picky about what I put up there (I’m nearing 1,000 photos, so it’s taken a while). In no particular order, from a few locations around Tasmania and Victoria (southern mostly). The Toora one is quite good but I took another one quite similar and it was a panorama so I put that one on flickr. These were mostly selected for flickr initially but after looking at them and working on them I decided that they probably weren’t quite up to scratch or were similar but not exactly the same as ones I chose to put on flickr.
Speaking of which, after the recent announcement that all users would be receiving one terabyte of space and the pro accounts would be discontinued or at least grandfathered with an ads-free account becoming the new paid account type, I was trying to decide whether to keep my pro account. Having looked at the updated flickr now using my account and other non-pro accounts and trying to work out what the difference is, the only difference I can see is the lack of stats (which I don’t find that important or interesting). At first I was wondering where the ads were, then I realised that I have adblock plus on, and so that “feature” (?) is irrelevant for me, so in all likelihood (with the only feature that I lose from my pro account being stats which I don’t pay much attention to) I will give up the pro account and just go with the free account. I was only paying $25 per year, and now it will be nothing, and there’s no way I would ever use up one terabyte of data.
In terms of the pictures, hope you enjoy, I’ve already pretty much given up on panoramio, so should be posting more pictures to here than before which is a good thing I think. Except that wordpress seems to choke on iphone photos (well, the portrait orientation ones any way), it is mostly more usable and nicer. Hey, no stolen pictures this post, they’re all mine. Yeah, it’s been a while, I really should try to post more, but will leave it at that for now, and see if I have anything in the works coming up.

I just got another request for use of one of my pictures from flickr which reminded me that I had a previous request a few months ago, so I had a bit of a google to see what ever happened with that. I did manage to find the site and picture with credit to me as requested, I don’t know if I got any extra hits but it’s cool to have the old dtra name out there. Anyway, it is just this picture of a rhesus monkey and its baby that I took in KL at the Batu Caves, which can also be found at flickr rhesus monkey hugs, now if only I can work out how to start charging these people for using my picture(s) :D. Anyway, this other request is from Friends of the Earth, some environmental charity and they want to use my most viewed flickr picture, the HDR shot of the clouds at Gunting Lagadan near the peak of Mount Kinabalu. I’ll post again when I see this one posted (if I can remember).
