Birthday In Absentia

Yellow Flower

Today is my mother’s birth­day. She would’ve been 63. I went up to the near­by food mart this morn­ing to grab half a dozen samosas to cel­e­brate. I don’t know if my moth­er had ever had any samosas in her life, but I know she would’ve liked it.

To mark her 63rd birth­day, I’ve decid­ed to open my hum­ble pho­to­blog, Chro­mat­ic Life, for pub­lic con­sump­tion today. I used to have a domain for it, but I didn’t get to work on it before the domain expired. Yeah, I suck.

I’m using Pix­el­post to pow­er my pho­to­blog, which I high­ly rec­om­mend. If you can’t be both­ered to install any script or just don’t have the web space to build one, Shut­ter­chance seems like a good alter­na­tive. Shut­ter­chance is more pho­to­blog-ish than Flickr-ish in nature because you can only pub­lish one pho­to a day, but it’s free and you get a nice URL to go with it.

Any­way, I hope I’ll be able to keep post­ing to my pho­to­blog because the last time I had one, it didn’t last very long. Wish me luck!

  1. Hey, beau­ti­ful site, I checked out “Chro­mat­ic life”, your pic­ture of Elo­ra is pret­ty neat, there are some great pho­to­graph­ic oppor­tu­ni­ties there — tub­ing in the sum­mer and the late Octo­ber evening pho­to­graph­ic oppor­tu­ni­ties with the “shop­ping pigs” dis­play along the street that par­al­lels the riv­er.
