Site news

A good streak ruined

To what’s left of my loyal readers:

I had a good thing going here — a year and a half of pretty solid posting, anyway, and pretty good traffic at one point. Even some good comments and e-mails from strangers, which helped fuel the whole thing.

I also had big plans: A shift of all the photo-hosting headaches to someone else. Higher-quality versions of old galleries. Better scaling and color for your display. A few prints for sale here and there.

But then the last few months happened, and well …. What’s important here isn’t the last few months, but the months to come. After registering for a full load of classes that didn’t include the student newspaper, I’m as surprised as anyone to find myself on the staff of the Spartan Daily. That means lots more photographs to come, mainly of a kind I’m utterly inexperienced with … like, say, water polo. (It’s a far cry from Monterey at sunset.)

As I get back to working on the site regularly, I hope to implement more of those changes I had in mind. One improvement has been forced upon me by unscrupulous casino comment spammers, and it starts right now: Comments can no longer be made on this page, and instead can be left at photos.danesch.com, which you can get to by clicking on any new photo. (The older stuff will take some time in transition.)

The bottom line is this: Stick around, it’s only going to get better.

San Jose State defender Katie Morgan blocks a shot by Santa Clara University attacker Andrea Evans during a match Saturday at the SJSU Aquatics Center.

I think that was a 200mm lens, so effectively 300mm on my D70...probably f/11 at 1/1500 or so.

OMG, it’s SOP!
