243Days #123 Currant, Gazebo and Garden Shed

Flowering Pink Currant as seen from the gazebo, with garden shed in the background.

There is something romantic and rustic in this photo.

Yesterday evening was spent processing some of my photos, cropping, sizing down and optimizing for quick loading on the web. The optimization does degrade the quality, but without it the files are huge.

How do the rest of you photographers handle the size. Do you just let WordPress crunch the photos or do you handle that  manually? Any words of wisdom would be very appreciated.

Until tomorrow,

    Love the pink flower (which you told me the name on one of my posts and i can’t remember) against the wood background.

      Thank you, Susan. That is a native flowering currant. Guess they are in the “currant” family but they have few berries. They are very late to bloom this year.

      Thank you, Marlene. I love our little garden shed, so do the squirrels. They chew holes in the floor, walls and build extravagant nests. They also have been know to fill all of our storage boxes with thousands of pine, fir and spruce cones.
