Nothing has changed here, the picture gallery is still the same, and still hosts landscape photos and travel images on an 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 is an old project of mine, launched at the time when short domain names were still available. The site's domain stemmed from my usual signature in correspondence with friends and family sort of partners. It was the shortest I could come up with: one had only to type seven characters in one of the two browsers available at the time.
I had started using a relatively "serious" SLR camera, a Minolta 700si, during my travels some years earlier, and been becoming more and more frustrated by sticking paper prints into albums, never to be seen again.
I decided to move online, found a hosting service provider and registered a domain name.
I bought a scanner, digitised several vacations' worth of negatives and went public.
The world didn't notice.
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 landing page and since been awaiting the complete removal. The page template was updated to become more visual. Verbose descriptions accompanying the images went away. The visitors came – and stayed. The site has already attracted well over 100,000 of them.
It is still rooted in the old, analogue world.
