Apologies for the delay in getting the last batch of photos online. The updates have now been done and there are around 750 new images added to the album. New pictures include travel to Austria as well as trips to Italy (including Venice), as well as loads of new pictures of Lilly (the dog) for all her fans out there. A new top-level directory has been added to show off some of the more artistic and portraiture shots in their own section. I've also got myself a new Olympus E-3 and a couple of new lenses, so I'm looking forward to raising the standard of photography displayed in future albums.
After a long break, the big backlog of photos are now online. Almost 1,500 new images added. New pictures include a trip to Japan, as well as quite a bit of travel around Europe. The top level directory now had a new entry - "Lilly" our new Yorkshire Terrier.

I've not updated the album for a while, which means that there are now new photos online from skiing trips, diving trips and family visits.
Finally added the photos from the cave diving trip to Florida (Underwater, courses) as well as some photos from a recent trip to Australia.
More photos online - Italy trip, a surprise party, Lynn's new studio and some photographs of Zurich in the autumn.
Added the photos from the last trip to Tessin - diving in the Verzasca valley.
New folder created for courses and events under the Underwater folder. You'll find the last EFR and Apprentice Tec Rec courses in there. Also added the last Red Sea trip to the Underwater folder and reorganised things slightly.
Some excellent new pictures added from our latest diving trip to Austria.
Added some new pics from a trip to Sweden, some diving in France and some general pics.
Since we've been in South Africa I've been a bit slack with photos. I've put some more photos online in the Travel, South Africa section. Sorry there aren't a lot, I'll try to take some more photos, including some more underwater ones.
The first photos from our extended South African trip are online - more photos will be added over the next six months. These pictures will be under Travel, South Africa - Sep 04 to Apr 05.
Recent photos from a trip to Vienna and Croatia for a technical diving course are online under "Underwater".
The photos from a recent trip to South Africa are now online under "Travel".
The photos from Korea and Japan are finally online under "Travel". You'll also find some more ski pics added during March and April in the "Ski Trips" section.
There have been some great ski conditions and weather in Davos recently. You'll find some pictures under "Ski Trips" in the Davos 2004 Jan.Feb folder.
Photos from the Chamonix new year ski trip are now online, check under "Ski Trips".
The photos from my trip to the US are now online under "Travel". This time the album was generated with version 1.2 of the skin, and some of you might note that this version is not available for download. This is correct, because I am still working on it. If you'd like a prerelease, send me an email.
The skin has finally been released, you can click here to go to the support site for the skin itself.
There have been major technical changes to the skin which generates the album. Most changes are not really visible to user. The skin is almost ready for release, should only be a few more days now...
I've made some minor changes to the scripts which build these photo galleries, in preparation for finally publishing my custom "skin" known as ExhibitPlus. The layout as it is now will be identical to that found in the final published version.
The pictures from my recent trip to Jordan are now online. They have been split into two sections, underwater photos and non-underwater photos. These can be located in the Underwater and Travel folders respectively.
The pictures from my recent trip aboard the Susanna I in the Red Sea are now online in the Underwater section. Susanna I is without doubt the best ship I have seen in the Red Sea, and the crew were absolutely fantastic!
Photos from a recent diving trip to Austria (Fernsteinsee) are now online in the Underwater section. Photos from a recent trip to London / Bern are now online in the Travel section.
The pool session pictures from the Open Water course on the weekend are now online, as well as some pics from the last wakeboarding session.
The new and improved photo gallery is now online. It took quite a lot of work to customise all the layouts
and the scripting, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to visit the forum and let me know! Many
thanks to David Ekholm and his wonderful program JAlbum without whom
none of this would have been possible. Ok, well it would have been possible, but would have taken 50 times as long :-) Thank you
also David for answering my endless scripting questions!
Please note that some minor things are going to change in this section, as the layouts of the index and photo pages still have some work that needs to be completed, mainly concerning the formatting.
As I add new photos to the gallery I will add announcements to this page (and probably in the forum as well), so check back here every now and again to see if there is something new. It is now much easier for me to add new content, so I will be doing so as soon as it becomes available. Enjoy!
Still on the "to do" list:
Conversion of entire JAlbum skin (I've named it ExhibitPlus) to fully use CSS.
Minimise the amount of wasted space when the browser is resized to smaller proportions.
Add comments to images.
Add link to download original version of each image / movie.
Movies currently don't work properly, I need to fix this.
Time frame for this work will be within the 2 weeks.
