In a search of all my digital folders (total inventory), no images showed up for February 15th. Apparently I have never taken even a single photo on this date since 2003 when I bought my first digital camera. I also looked through the envelopes in a file cabinet where I store my 35mm negatives. February 15 was not written on any of those either. Many envelopes had only a year and month written on them. That is why I selected this one. My fiancÚ was helping me remodel the bedroom in our future home to include closets. The house, built in the early 1900s did not have them. Our wedding date was April 1, 1993. 

Photo tip: Horizontal and vertical lines do not need to always be perpendicular to make a good photo. In this case, I chose not to stand in a spot where the image would look too boxy. It is a bit more difficult to balance a shot. I did so by lining up the left edge of the closet, and the vertical corner of the room, with the edge of the frame. Notice extra letters after the basic photo number. I use those to tell me when I altered the original for display. The CR stands for cropped. The S43 means I resized it to the 4:3 ratio of my digital camera images. Even if I did not use the 35mm prefix, the three digit roll number, along with the two digit negative number would identify it as such. The six digit number is always the date.

If your screen resolution is 800x600 pixels (as I use), you should be able to get a better view by pressing the F11 key on your keyboard. Pressing the F11 key a second time returns your screen to normal. 



Occasionally, after uploading the new picture of the week, I must click on the refresh button in order to get the new image to appear on my screen. If you still see the image from last week after Thursday, try clicking your refresh button on your screen (it looks like the symbol at left), or F5 on your keyboard. 


This william's picture of the week page had been under consideration for a while when I finally decided to put it together. As I was working with my images, and one would strike my fancy, I often knew it could be a long time before the photo might make it into one of my website pages, if ever, and from those moments the idea for this page was born. One of my concerns, which delayed doing this page, was the need to update it regularly. Traveling out of town, or just getting busy with other demands, can become an issue which prevents me from having time for my website work. So, the term "of the week" is used loosely. I will endeavor to make it so, but at times, a picture could run for as many as three weeks. I have chosen Thursday as the usual day of the week photos will change because it is rarely a travel day for me. Your best bet would be to add this page to your favorites, so you can easily check. And please, share the link with your friends and family. For sheer lack of time, I do not place my photography anywhere else on the Internet. 

Each time a change is made, the new picture will be uploaded with the same "WOW" file name as the previous image. The net result is that the older one is replaced and gone (note: you will need to change the file names if you wish to save more than one). These two pages are the only spot in the entire wsharing site where I use image files that are this large (except the single 724 x 543 image on the last page). Normally I reduce dimensions and quality levels until pictures are around 50 KB or less, to allow pages to open quickly (including backgrounds where I often trade quality for dimensions). These larger photos will not be archived on this site (see the Scrapbook Photos index for pages with smaller versions of past images used). 

The pictures on this page will not always be my very best work. Like with everybody else, the mood of the moment will influence my choices, so explore the rest of the site. There is a lot here to see. You are free to use these photos for personal non-commercial purposes. Usually a size large enough for use as a desktop image, greeting card, or even basic prints, will be available. Get creative . . . use your imagination.  Enjoy! 

To copy the above photo just right click on the image and select the "save picture as" option. If the original was large enough, there is also a 1600 x 1200 pixel version accessible using the link below. If you have a need for the original size (if larger) you must email me and request it. If you display my work elsewhere please be sure to acknowledge it as "courtesy of www.wsharing.com."  click here for details
