Pictures that Should Have Been in Yesterday's Blog

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Wasn't it Mario Puzo who said if he'd realized how popular his novel, The Godfather, would become he'd have taken a lot more time to write it better? Well, that's kind of the way I feel this morning after seeing the Popular Blog Award on my post from yesterday. But thanks, SparkFriends.

Here are a few of the pictures I promised yesterday of my niece, nephew, and me before the race:

You can see a bit of the lake where we often run or walk or jog and frequently local races are here. Lake Hollingsworth, 2.84 miles around, has hundreds or probably thousands of birds, a rich variety, as well as Florida Southern College, rich with Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. You used to see lots of boats and water skiers on this lake, but not so much recently. There are more water plants and run off is thoughtfully treated before it gets to the lake, so the ecology has improved in recent years. It is a beautiful spot and yesterday we just overlapped a little more than a quarter mile to make a 5K. The Rotary Twilight 5K I'm planning to run on Friday, February 1st, goes around this lake, but ends with the last quarter mile up a hill lit with illuminaries. I can make it!

That's all the pictures this blog will take, so I'll put the finishing pictures in the next blog. I know some of you get more pictures than that in blogs, so maybe it is my computer's limitations, although it likely is the limitation of the computer user!

Edit: Need help again from SparkFriends. When I tried to put the finishing pictures in this blog, and when I tried to put them in a separate blog I got the error message, "File too large to save." Any clue how to overcome this issue?? Thanks for any help.

I get that file too large a lot. I discovered my photos have to be under 5 MB before Sparks will take them. Unfortunately, I have never figured out how to make them smaller :( As my camera is on automatic, I never have any idea what size they are until trying to upload them. If its just under 5 MB, after many tries, it may accept them, but usually not. Good luck with it! The resolution didn't seem to matter, just the file size being uploaded.

    Thanks so much for sharing the to get to know your family better. Looks like a great place to run.
Sorry I have no idea what to suggest for the photo uploading. All I know is that my DH set my camera that I carry with me on smaller files so that when I do take things I can upload.
Have a terrific Sunday.

    Great that you have your own family group of runners now! What a great example you are! Marsha, when I email pictures I'm often given the choice of reducing the size so they email faster. You could email them to yourself, save them to a file and upload them from there. Worth a try. Congratulations on the blog award!

    The pictures help complete yesterday's bog. Probably the finishing pictures will too once you can upload them.

    Great photos, by the way. If the photo you have that you want to attach was taken with a different camera with higher resolution that couild be a "file size" error. You might try editing the picture, cropping it to reduce its size, or saving it with a lesser resolution in your picture editor (MS picture editor is on most computers these days).

And... on occasion there are upload errors associated with the site itself, and trying again later works.

Good luck! And by the way, did you notice your blog from yesterday got featured in Spark Mail? Congrats!
