CSS, HTML and an Old Picture

x-400.jpgI’m still learning how to utilize CSS and the finer points of HTML. The banner background image is a Time lapse shot I took of Grand Central at about 10PM in 1991 with my Minolta X-700 with a Vivitar Series 1 70-200 Lens. I figured it’s as good as any image for a background. Here is a link to the full image. BTW: If your taking time lapse shots at night, Wait till it rains. I’m playing aroung with a CGI perl script to randomize the image. For the Text on the Image, I’d like to use an black outline font, but I haven’t quite figured out how to do that just yet.

I took hundreds of pictures with that Camera in college but I haven’t used it since 1995. That particular shot took me close to an entire roll of film before I got one that I Liked. I took a simular shot in black and white which was good and didn’t cost as much as I developed the roll and printed only the ones I liked.

EDIT: Valuable Lesson! Don’t edit the Stylesheet in a Text editor without applying the changes to MT! When I added THIS entry, It automatically overwrote the Stylesheet on the Filesystem…
Fortunataely, I still had the file open and saved it in MT.
