The Old Coffee Mill and a Call for Flickr & Facebook to increase their small pic sizes

It is old indeed! This is from my newly discovered ghost town and favorite place outside of Austin to go for a fun afternoon shoot! As much as I love coffee shops, I hate to see one fallen apart into such a state of disrepair... but it does make a good candidate for some HDR!


If possible, zoom into the Flickr one and see the original size if you like all the details in these sorts of places. The one here on the blog is 900 pixels across but the original is 6048 pixels across, so the blog cuts out about 6x of the detail! But, it's better than the paltry Facebook or Flickr sizes which are so tiny that it's kind of depressing... I think that is a major problem with those two services... the very small default size of the image usually does not do it justice. They should have two interfaces - a low and high bandwidth interface. That's not too much to ask here in late 2009, is it?
