Salt’s Mill

Image by Alison Christine
Saltaire was founded in 1851 by Sir Titus Salt, a major industrialist in the Yorkshire woollen market. The name of the village is a combination of the founder’s surname and the name of the river.Salt built neat stone houses for his workers (significantly far better than the slums of Bradford), wash-houses with tap water, bath-houses, a hospital and an institute for recreation and education, with a library, a reading room, a concert hall, billiard area, science laboratory and a gymnasium. The village had a college for the kids of the workers, almshouses, allotments, a park and a boathouse. Due to the fact of this mixture of homes, employment and social services the original town is usually observed as an important improvement in the history of 19th century urban preparing. In December 2001, Saltaire was designated a World Heritage Website by UNESCO.

The Old Coffee Mill and a Contact for Flickr & Facebook to improve their tiny pic sizes

Image by Stuck in Customs
It is old certainly! This is from my newly found ghost town and favorite spot outside of Austin to go for a enjoyable afternoon shoot! As significantly as I really like coffee shops, I hate to see one particular fallen apart into such a state of disrepair… but it does make a excellent candidate for some HDR!

If feasible, zoom into the Flickr 1 and see the original size if you like all the information in these sorts of locations. The 1 here on the blog is 900 pixels across but the original is 6048 pixels across, so the weblog cuts out about 6x of the detail! But, it is far better than the paltry Facebook or Flickr sizes which are so tiny that it is sort of depressing… I believe that is a main issue with those two services… the quite tiny default size of the image normally does not do it justice. They ought to have two interfaces – a low and high bandwidth interface. That’s not as well significantly to ask right here in late 2009, is it?
