Gratuitous Fall Picture

<- Click here
There's a strip mall in the City of Lancaster. When they built it- it became apparent that Red Rose Commons would not be able to spill onto an adjoining wet land. So imagine this... here we have a wild bird preserve that's the result of and virtually a part of a city mall. Cool, huh?

Oh, as for the image look. It's Fall. I take pictures. So I've got to take at least one picture of Autumn in Pennsylvania. Those are the rules in the Ancient Book Of Photographers,right? And this week was the high color. Yesterday I went to Barnes & Noble at the mall, and took this on the way out. Another annual task checked off.

Ted, just a technical comment: I am here in China and can read your blog but not see any picture. If you have any idea about the reason for this and want to try a solution, I can re-check for the next 36 hours.

A beautiful treatment of an easily worn out subject. I like the way you combined the images into a coherent whole.

Hello Markus,

I just looked at the Blogger help center. There are others who have reported problems with Chinese visitors accessing their blogs. There may be a problem with Internet Explorer. Perhaps if you try FireFox or Mac's Safari browsers the problem will go away. There may be a problem with government blocking of some images.

I've posted this message on the help forum to see if anyone can give us additional direction.

Can anyone help me?

Perhaps if you stop back in 48 hours, i shall find a solution? Your problem may explain why this blog has a lot of traffic from most of the world but very little from China?

Sorry about your problem.

Ted

Ted, checking this morning http://imagefiction.blogspot.com/2008/11/gliding-light.html, I noticed that the thumbnail of the virgin image is displayed from the url http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_WSqm7aiCpgY/SRYNyRDXqfI/AAAAAAAAAGI/TxMSBbQfK_I/s1600-h/skateboardguy_orig.jpg

The main image, which is supposed to be served by http://homepage.mac.com/byrneprintmaker/.Pictures/People/skateboardguy_srgb.jpg ist not visible. So I guess it's not a blogger problem, but a problem of homepage.mac.com.
