    In case you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in Banff, Alberta this is what the last 5 months have looked like through my eyes & lens.

    September 2005 - February 2006

    I'd have to say that pic number 6 was my favorite. Keep up the great work! You're an excellent photographer.

    It's a pretty area! Is it mandatory to lick skis there?

    nice

    Some really artistic photos in your collection, I am impressed. You're a great photographer. I used to live in Calgary, so I know the Banff area pretty well. I'm in Montreal now... nice city but the culture is much less inviting.

    Did you write your own slideshow software? I love how it fills the screen exactly with each photo. If the software is available somewhere, please let me know. I use the Gallery server-side software (written in PHP), and there's a plugin for iPhoto that makes publishing photos really slick. But it doesn't have the same finesse as your slideshow software.

    Cheers,

    Hey Thanks! I actually lived in Calgary for a year before ending up in Banff and I do plan on getting back out to Cow-town some day, perhaps when ski season ends.

    As for the software, it's written in flash using XML to pull in external jpgs. I used the basic code from the macromedia tutorial here

    As for the full screen I used this tutorial for a liquid layout as they call it.

    I had to do some tweaking of my own but most of the code I got from those 2 sources.

    wow.... really beautiful...

    And those pictures of the slopes made me REALLY want to go skiing again, and I won't get to for AT LEAST 2 weeks :( :(

    I spent much of last year living just up the road at Lake Louise.

    Gorgeous area - shame about the season....
