Photos from Belfast

There’s not much to say about these photos. I experimented with some hdr water photos, some random night shots and street art. They were all shot in, or on the way to, Belfast.

Instagram for Android is a Joke

Blogging about blogging: As some you are aware of, my fruity device couldn’t handle the Norwegian climate and became rotten, which meant I had to spend some of my hard-earned cash on a new phone. Obviously I didn’t want to get another fruit phone, so I went for a weather resistant Android phone.

One thing I quickly noticed with my new Android phone is that when I share photos to Instagram via Flickr, the quality is total shit.

First I upload my photos to my Flickr account then, on the Flickr app on the phone, there’s an option to share the image on Instagram. This app works for both Iphone and Android. On the IG app for Android you have the option to enable or disable High Quality uploads, but even the so-called High Quality is, at best, a pile of feces. Instacrap.

I did a web search with duckduckgo (because they don’t track your searches like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc, etc, do) and quickly learned that this issue isn’t a new one: the post I read was more than two years old and they still haven’t fixed it!
Why?!?

The Titanic Afterparty

A photo gallery from the Titanic International Tattoo Convention after-party that was held at Cabaret Supper Club in Belfast.

Once again thanks to Mr. Carson & his family for arranging the convention and thanks for inviting me to the after-party. Much obliged.

Surprise, surprise! I got this message from the WordPress team today:

WordPress Anniversary - 5 Years
Let me also add, for those of you who don’t know, that I’ve had my tagline: «Encyclopedia Miscellaneous – ‘quality’ blogging since August 2011», since September 2011.

Both this after party and my WP anniversary is  definitely a rare event, nothing you’ll see every day.
