I've been plugging away at the new website,
experimenting and tweaking.
It's going to have a simple, clean fresh look to start
with, yet have
the ability to be easily re-themed (made-over) with new
'skins' in the future.
What I find that I'm coming up short on though is high
quality images to
make it look interesting and inviting.
I really want to continue to use the website as a shop
window for the
club going forward, and try to generate as much interest
as possible in
MSARS throughout Sussex and beyond.
That said, I'm pretty sure that you lot will already
have a whole bunch
of media sitting around in your filing systems that
deserve an outing on
the internet. I'd like you all to have a think and a
your photo folders and see if you have anything that
might be worthy of
Some guidelines for you:
You MUST have outright ownership of the image rights. I
don't want any
legal surprises in the future. Please be mindful of
faces (or children) too, unless it's your own beautiful
boatrace of course.
It must be original and professional. I don't just want
yellowing Polaroid of your battered old radio balanced
on your open sock
It should be bright, colourful, hi-res and well framed -
something within it that meets those criteria that I can
I'm looking for a mix of vintage stuff, modern stuff,
construction projects, antennas, event-based stuff etc.
etc. The more
varied the better. Outside photos tend to be good, as
bright and cheery, and tend to have less
in the background.
Please see what you can do. I don't promise to use any
given image, so
don't be offended if I don't publish your most treasured
images will be stored and possibly used in the future if
theme/colour scheme/story or context calls for it.
Please send your images directly to me at
include a brief description of what they depict, in case
I want to
incorporate them in a future article for example.
No time like the present - do it now! :)
