Image Counts in Different Ways

On Dictionary.com there are 23 different meanings for the word “Image”.

Most people would consider number one first when thinking of the word – 1. a physical likeness or representation of a person, animal, or thing, photographed, painted, sculptured, or otherwise made visible.

I liked number three – a mental representation; idea; conception.
Image, not just a picture – it’s about how we choose to represent in many different ways.

Image is in the details. Since I started going through and looking for photos to highlight for the Lonely Planet Blog Awards, I could no longer ignore the fact that some of the text in older posts is not uniform. Image wise that is, something I needed to fix in order to make myself happy. Which is why I made my first task of the day going back and editing my blog to remove all the html code that is making the text messed up; Talk about a princess and the pea moment, ha ha.

I managed to make it through the first 247 posts, which is pretty good. I was only stumped by one post which would not show half of the pictures, even though when I went into the html while in edit, they all still show as there. May have to consult tech tacoboy on that one. Break time for me, I have an errand to run. Will likely write more later.

Still working away on the next 370 posts. Good news is I’m getting faster and spotting what I need to remove to make the text the same. While going through some posts from March 2008, I found with some pictures by Cullen Walker and travelqueen. Since they are both entrants to the photo contest, I decided to share them with you, as well as these pics of another contestant,Miclele – Life’s a beach blog. The count is up to 19 people who have submitted photos to the Belize Please photo contest.

1/3 done. I’m so ready for a break and Madame’s cottage pie that Paul brought home from Lime this afternoon – it’s only 7 PM, but I am starving.

I will leave you with some pics from my walk with Court yesterday of a young girl who was balancing cups and a kitten while riding her bike home.

If you like what you see, please nominate tacogirl for “Best Image Blog” in the Lonely Planet Blog awards.
