Hi folks,

Before I proceed any further with my website, I decided to do some editing. Looking at some of my earlier website pages, I noticed that some of my photos weren't cropped and/or rotated properly. Now that my cropping skills have improved, I've decided to go back and re-crop any improperly cropped photos.

I just did my first batch.

Hi folks,

I finally finished re-cropping my Greek Italy/Sicily photos. Tomorrow, I'll probably begin re-cropping my Augustus photos.

Hi folks,

I finally finished re-cropping all of my improperly cropped photos. It took me about 10 days. They look much better now.

I know that some of my photos are a little blurry, especially the small coins. For some reason, my iPhone has trouble taking clear photos of small coins. I also know that some of my coin photos are now a little "cut in". When I re-cropped my photos, I also rotated some of them a little because they were crooked. When I rotated them, my computer "cut in" on the edges of the coins in the photos. It isn't bad. It is very slight. It's one of those "annoying things". The coins are still 98-99% there. I will probably correct both of these issues at some point in the future, but not now.

Next, I am going to edit the text in my earlier website pages. My later pages contain text that is more descriptive. I want to bring my earlier pages more in line with my later pages. So, I'll be editing the text. I'll start today.

Hi folks,

About 2-3 weeks ago, I started the process of making some changes to my website pages. First, I re-cropped (and rotated, if necessary) my improperly cropped photos. Then, I edited and re-formatted the text in every one of my website pages. And I re-uploaded every page and re-cropped photo to Joe's server. I wanted to bring my earlier pages more in line with my later pages. I wanted to give them a more uniform look. I finally finished tonight. I am pleased with the end result.

Now, I can finally get back to posting new photos again. I'll probably start tomorrow.

Hi folks,

Today, I thought I was finally going to be able to get back to posting new photos, but I got sidetracked.

First, I have a Roman Imperial Elagabalus denarius where my tag contained an incomplete description and no reference number at all. I looked it up in Wildwinds and found the full description and reference numbers (RIC 146). So, I decided to write up new tags for it. I took photos of them, but I didn't get a chance to crop or upload them yet. They are still in my iPhone. I also edited the text in that website page and uploaded it. There is a photo missing in my website page because I didn't upload them yet. The tag is increasing from 1 photo to 2.

Second, when I edited my website during the past 2-3 weeks, some of my Magna Graecia photos needed to be rotated. In the process of doing that, some of the edges were "cut in". And I needed to re-shoot the photos. Also, looking through my website, I noticed that some of my Magna Graecia photos are still a little blurry, even after making several "revisions". So, I decided to address these issues today. I think this is something like my fifth or sixth "revision", as far as my Magna Graecia photos are concerned. The new photos are still in my iPhone. I haven't had a chance to crop or upload them yet. I'll probably do it tomorrow.

Consequently, my posting of new (Roman Provincial) photos got pushed back at least another day or 2.

Hi folks,

I just uploaded the Magna Graecia photos I shot yesterday. They look much better.

Hopefully, tomorrow, I can get back to posting new photos again.

Hi folks,

Today, I swapped out 17 blurry Magna Graecia photos.

This is something like the 6th time that I am revising (re-shooting) my Magna Graecia photos. Obviously, I started replacing the worst (blurriest) ones first. Now that I am doing my 6th revision, I am replacing the ones that are even just a little bit blurry. They look much nicer now.

The whole problem here is that I posted my Magna Graecia coins first. I was new to coin photography, and I didn't really know what I was doing. Now that I am more experienced (and more skilled at it), I am swapping out my earlier blurry photos. And I am replacing them with sharper, crisper photos.

I especially like the Domitian / biga of centaurs. I don't recall seeing that type before.

That is an interesting type. And do those centaurs have horns?
