Photocollect


Today’s link is to Photocollect, which is a useful way to collect photos from group events. The principle behind Photocollect is that everyone involved with the event is able to post all of their photos to the same place for sharing. The site is free for photo collection, however, storing photos at Photocollect does involve a fee.

DailyBooth


If you like taking photos and would love to have a place where you could post them in a way that is like a Blog, you may want to check out DailyBooth. It is a Blog for posting photos on a daily basis – or as regularly as you would like. Check out the site at:

http://dailybooth.com

I have just started my own PhotoBooth Profile at:

http://dailybooth.com/Particular_Kev

It is my intention to continue to maintain this Blog with daily posts of a photo, video, quote or a link. However, with DailyBooth, I’ll be seeking to post a photo a day – but the photo will not necessarily be taken on the particular day that it is Blogged there. I simply don’t take photos on a daily basis – I do however have quite the collection of photos from over the years.

The Three Brothers


The Brothers - David, Kevin and Stephen

This photo is another of the images salvaged from my grandfather’s slide collection. It shows my two brothers and I – in I what I believe to be my grandparents backyard at Marmong Point. I am the one at the back.

The Only Way to Travel in Suburbia


Michael and Kevin Matthews with Grandma MatthewsThis photo was another salvaged from my grandfather’s slide collection. It would have been taken back in the 1970s. I have no idea where it was taken.

The three people in the photo are my grandmother in the lower left corner, my cousin Michael is on the tank at left and I am on the tank at right.

Crossing Over


Kevin Matthews, Michael MatthewsThis photo is another from the slides that I managed to salvage from my grandfather’s collection. I have simply called it ‘crossing over.’ Why? Because my cousin Michael and I are crossing over a bridge. Quite simple really.

I am not entirely sure where this photo was taken, but it does resemble an old bridge that once crossed a stream as you headed into the Barrington Tops from Gloucester, in New South Wales, Australia. Perhaps someone will recognise the location and either confirm or correct me on that.

I am the smaller of the two boys in the photo. My cousin Michael is on the left of the photo.

Follow the Sun: Australian Travel Posters Collection from the 1930s to the 1950s


I thought I might share some websites on Australia this week. The first is a site that has a collection of Australian travel posters from the 1930s to the 1950s. The posters are stored at the National Library of Australia.
