Wormsloe, the Endless Forest of Savannah - 16,000 pixels wide!

    My Biggest Photo Ever and Flickr can't handle it
    The TIFF of the photo below is 984 megs, and the JPG is 124 megs! It's about 16,000 pixels across and very fun to zoom in on as you go down the lane. I dropped it to 12,000 pixels so I could upload, but, I feel a little short-changed!

    You can see the Original Size below...

    I wish Flickr would offer a premium subscription where I could post huge photos. I'd gladly pay $200 a year for a premium subscription that gets me all sorts of extra features, like big photos, high quality videos like my Vimeo sub, tier 1 tech support, and all sorts of other goodies.

    Another Forest Photo, Hanging at HQ of Flickr Competitor

    The fine people at Smugmug (see my port there at stuckincustoms.smugmug.com/) have chosen my Bamboo Forest photo to hang inside their headquarters in California. They are actually building a 60" lightbox behind it. I'll see it in person in a few weeks when I go visit the crew there. I'm looking forward to it!

    Daily Photo - Wormsloe, the Endless Forest of Savannah
    My friend Scott Kublin (who made it to my Favorites page on my iPhone... he was at the bottom, but I just moved him up above the babysitter) lives in Savannah, so it was good to visit him on my little road trip. He commented that regular visitors to Stuck In Customs would probably like to see current shots while I am traveling around! So, here it is! However, this one took about 3-4 hours to edit, five cups of coffee, and several pieces of pie. Did you see my little "Buy Trey Chocolate For Energy" there in the right column? Yes, I burn through copious calories to create these things. This one almost broke my back, but I am very happy with it.

    Some of you may remember this place from Forest Gump... A lot of it was shot down in Savannah. Besides Wormsloe, I also visited some amazingly moody cemeteries, draped in mossy trees. I'll get to editing those photos another time... maybe when I get back home to Texas!

      I was just there and out of interest looked at other photos of Wormsloe on Flickr. I bought 2 postcards while I was there shooting. I hope you know one of them is your shot. Meridith
