05/17/14 276 W - + 3 - 1 How Many Photos, Mack?

If you've gone searching for my older fire photos, you've noticed that my Legeros Fire Photos archive page is missing stuff. There are unhelpful notations stating "this collection is incomplete." Why is that? Well, server space is limited. And rather than spend money to keep expanding, I've been deleting older collections after four or five years. Or, I've moved some of them to my Flickr site, notably event series such as the fallen firefighters memorial and the Raleigh fire expo.

Were Mr. Blogger really smart, he'd move everything Flickr, which has an insane amount of space. And is far less costly than my server space. And doesn't require manually rebuilding each album of photos. But that's a consideration for another day. (Were he smart and income-minded, he'd also get into serious stock photography, have searchable indexes, and means to order commercial versions of certain pictures.)

Just how many fire photos has the Hawaiian Shirt Guy posted over the years? Here are the approximate totals, representing both incident and event photos  posted to (or linked from ) www.legeros.com/firepics. Visit this Flickr page, for "best of" albums from each year.

What do you think? Could you correlate trends in my annual totals with trends of working fires in Raleigh, over the last decade? The number of major working fires (now called second alarm or higher) have certainly gone down. That's a puzzle to solve another day.

And maybe we can get Lee Wilson to guestimate his totals. That would interesting!

See you on the fireground.
