Nothing has changed here, the picture gallery is still the same. It still hosts all my landscape photos and travel images on an old, external site. (The link will open in a new browser tab or window, depending on your settings.)
I just felt I should drop some words of explanation, so here it goes.
This "legacy" site was launched in 2002, at the time when short domain names were still available. Its not very original title reflected my usual signature in correspondence with friends-and-family kind of partners. It was the shortest I could come up with: visitors had to type only seven characters in one of the two browsers available at the time. Both vanished since.
Some years before that, I had started using a relatively "serious" SLR camera during my travels, a Minolta 700si, and was becoming more and more frustrated by sticking paper prints into albums, never to be seen again.
Going online seemed like a logical move. I found a hosting service provider and registered a domain name.
Then bought a scanner, digitised several vacations' worth of negatives and went public.
The site grew slowly with each and every trip. I started to send word to fellow travellers notifying them of irregular updates. I gathered, there were people who liked my images, or at least were kind enough not to tell otherwise.
In 2007, way too late for film photography in general, I purchased a "new" camera, a used Hasselblad XPan. It opened the world around me in a completely new format, pretty literally. The world widened.
The picture gallery changed, too. The old content has left the home page and been since awaiting the complete removal. The page template was updated to become more visual. Verbose descriptions accompanying the images went away. Historic maps on front pages became interactive.
You probably could still call it old-fashioned, though.
