for some reason, daisy seems to think that every web page i make needs to have some sort of hidden text for her to find. like life is one big highlights magazine or something. she's a good kid, but i don't understand why i indulge her sometimes.

Image Archive

I've never been able to keep a physical scrapbook. Somehow I still manage to keep taking pictures now and then. Film is a transition medium between reality and the scanner. If only resolution on digitals were better.

People seem to be the recurring theme of most of the photos. Thus they have a semi-slick thumbnail interface.

The locations tend to be less interesting. More locations here. Look ma, I'm putting links inside a paragraph. I won't do that again.

More detailed information on some people is available, albeit squished. I tried to make something like that way back in summer '97, but it only ever worked on IE4.
