08:41 am - Wedding pictures
This is a response to neffie's comment that she's never seen my wedding pictures, but as it's a nice rant, and one I'm likely to want to read again, I'll post it separately.

I don't think our photographer gave us the option of having the images put onto CD, or if he did, for some reason it seemed like a bad idea. I don't know if my dad rejected it before I heard it or if I never heard it, but I didn't hear that it was an option until we already had the wedding album back at which point I said I wanted to keep it, because we were leaving town shortly and I wanted to bring it with us.

Our photographer, bless his heart, cut the negatives into strips of about four pictures each. He took many, many rolls of film. I don't remember the exact number now, but between 15 and 20. All cut into individual strips. Well, it was clear pretty quickly that I was going to want them digitally. So I went to my guy. Now, he he says his hair was white when I walked in, but I'm sure there was less of it when I walked out. Some weeks later, many dollars poorer, I walked out with a stack of CDs. Each of the rolls had its own.

From there, you would think it would be a simple matter to put them online, but I was concerned about webspace and didn't feel like culling them to pick the ones that should go up, so all I did was consolidation. I put all the pictures onto my computer (don't ask which one, I actually don't know. If it was the mac, that got lost in the GREAT DISK CRASH of July 2006) and created a single CD set of the pictures, which is what I worked from last night.

At the time, I was disk space considerate, so I didn't upload the pictures because SO FREAKING MANY. I can probably go through them and post some of my favourites.

09:02 am - Pictures
I've updated with three of the pictures from the wedding and the pictures Rocker loaned us from his irc collection.

There are more pictures in the wedding album, but 1) I forgot to upload the marginal pictures in which Greg figures into the background. and 2) I haven't finished going through the album. Did I mention how many freaking pictures there are? And each one is in three resolutions...erg.

Has anyone else noticed that Greg is never alone? There are no pictures of JUST Greg anywhere. He's always with someone, doing something. You show me a picture of Greg alone, and I'll show you a picture someone cropped.
