Naturally Focused on New Years Eve... A Holy Family Event...
January 2, 2011
Note to self: ........When not traditionally a fan of New Years Eve parties use the following directions:
1. Fly by the seat of one's pants.
2. Get dressed up like you have somewhere to go.
3. Take your favourite possession in hand and grab your coat! (said possession is camera btw!)
4. Head to a place where you know the people are warm and friendly.
Note to Holy Family Parish:
This year I decided to take a step outside my comfort zone and go to the New Year's Eve dinner and dance at my church and had a great time. For anyone who is a member of the Holy Family Parish in Whitby who hasn't been to a dinner & dance I highly recommend you attend! The evening had ballroom dance instruction, a DJ, Filipino dishes, sweets table, champagne at midnight and door prizes but it doesn't even begin to cover how much fun the night was! I cannot say enough positive words about the night and I know that those who attended were so gracious enough to allow me to take their photos are going to want to see the ones that were taken. I hope you are not disappointed so let me begin to explain how you can access the pictures and why I have chosen this format to offer the pictures to you!
Right now as we speak 350 photos are uploading to a website called www.4shared.com from my computer. Unforunately 350 pictures takes time so......When the pictures have been compiled you will be able to go to the 4shared site, do a search for either Naturally Focused or Holy Family Parish and be brought to the page where the photos are stored. After emailing me for the password for these photos you will be able to have complete access but photos on this 4shared account are *not viewable to the general public*.
The reason for the use of 4shared is... When taking a picture from a website and simply right clicking on it and saving it to your photos on your own computer you are degenerating the quality of the photo and if you were to print it off at your local developers the quality would be mediocre at best. But when taking it from 4shared it is the same quality as it would be if you had taken it straight from the original computer or from the camera for that matter so the quality of the photo remains in tact. Best feature besides having a higher quality photo..., its also free! Consider it a New Year's gift from me to you that I hope you enjoy!
.... lastly please be patient...350 photos do take time to completely upload to the site and glitches may occur over the next 48 hours in setting up password protection and search/keywords to make use of the site and its features.
*side note* ...I understand the importance of privacy and of personal preference in appearance of photos and that some people may request their photo be omitted from the view of the parish. *If* the reason for omitting the photo is for purely cosmetic reasons (yes we ladies do like to always look our best) please remember that while you may not like how you look an artist who sees the beauty you possess does and did take the photos. That being said... If after consideration you are still unsatisfied and still absolutely unhappy with a photo of yourself being on display in the pictures please do not hesitate to contact me to have the photo removed and I will do so without question.
