This album marks a change in the way I make these albums, hopefully for the easier. iPhoto, it turns out, is quite nice for manipulating images, and even has a variety of output formats. By using Perl, I was able to take the output of iPhoto's "export to HTML" function, and convert it into the format I use for my albums. The downside is that now images are named with a very boring number, instead of with something descriptive. I think it's a decent price to pay for not having to open up 30 images in Photoshop and resize them twice.

My mom's overrun herb garden.

The old house we used to live in, which the current owners have let run wild.


Not in SoCal, but at work. There's snow on the hills!
