DRR User? Move your pictures!

Probably not so many readers of my blog are using the services of Digital Railroad, an online photo archiving solution like PhotoShelter, but in case you are, please make sure you know that they have filed for bankruptcy and have given their users until as early as 2359PST on October 31st to move all files off their servers, or risk them being lost for good.

More information on line here

Of course, backing up is an important part of the digital workflow, and it really doesn't help if your chosen online archive goes belly up. Hopefully most users were using DRR purely as a backup facility, and still have a local copy of any files that were online...... hopefully.....

Kingfisher, Oostvaardseplassen

Originally uploaded by DigitalHeMan
At the start of the year one of my photographic resolutions was to shoot a kingfisher in 2008.

It took me until October, but today I was finally lucky enough to find a kingfisher that was willing to pose for me. More to come.....
