Notes on Kite Aerial Photography: Thumbnail Gallery

Thumbnail Galleries

During my term as department chair I had relatively little time for the development of this site. Now that my administrative duties are complete I have enjoyed a return to matters KAP. Of late I have found ample opportunities to fly kites, take photographs, make prints, and work on new rigs. But the WWW site has continued to languish. It seems at times that my web Muse has taken a new position as a short order cook in Indiana. As a strategy to kick start new page development I have inaugurated a new form of gallery page. Thumbnail Galleries will gather images that are thematically related and present them with a minimum of fuss. I have been fooling around with the Web Gallery feature of Photoshop 7.0. The nice folks at Adobe have provided means to customize the thumbnail pages created by their script and this makes them easier to incorporate into this site. What could be better?

Well there is one aspect of posting thumbnail image galleries that leaves me a bit uneasy. Unlike my regular gallery pages these thumbnail galleries contain a large number of relatively unedited images. This makes sense for presenting the results of a shoot to someone interested in using the images.  I often find it difficult to predict which image will resonate with a user. So, consider these casual presentations of otherwise unposted works -- perhaps the precursors of future pages with more carefully selected images and proper accompanying content. You will undoubtedly find redundancies in content and composition in the thumbnails; skip over them blithely as you sample those of interest.
