I’ve added a new section to my site which I am calling “Heap”. Heap contains a large number of images, roughly selected. The idea is that I can add to it easily without having to edit selections down, which is hard for me. Heap prioritizes quantity and quick viewing, and I realize it definitely isn’t for everyone. Aside from viewing a grid of tiny images, you can move your cursor over an image to view a medium sized version, or click it to view a large one.
For a long time I have had the idea to include a really large number of images as well as intentional selections from that pool, but for now here is the many-images part. Heap currently contains 800+ images from the beginning of 2014 onwards. Most of these are from traveling to Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Albania, and Montenegro between leaving Victoria and settling in Toronto.
I’ve also decided, at least for now, to have these images included in the Random Pairs pool, which has the side effect of increasing the number of possible pairs from 300k to 1.3 million, which may or may not be a good thing.
Additionally I’ve updated the front page of the site so that every section has a preview image to entice you, and converted the sidebar navigation to a header, which might make better use of space at some screen sizes.
