The More Things Change

I hadn’t actually planned to make a full blog post this weekend, but inspiration comes from the oddest places. I had wanted just to take a few more photos for the Inkpourium.

Introducing the Inkpourium

I’m starting to catalogue my pens, inks, and related items, and the photos are going into a Flickr Photoset, which keeps them separate from the scans for the ink reviews and my other photos. This photoset can also be accessed through the “Inkpourium” page. The dependent pages filter out the relevant tagged photos and will be added to as the collection expands. Look at the pages and you’ll soon get the picture (boom, boom).

The Flickr widget stream had become a mess so I’ve replaced it with one just for the Inkpourium tagged images.

Unfortunately Flickr tagging appears to be badly broken at the moment which means that some tagged photos may not appear when they should, even though they have been properly tagged. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
