Cool High Calorie images

Check out these high calorie images:

Wormsloe, the Endless Forest of Savannah – 16,000 pixels wide!
high calorie

Image by Stuck in Customs
My Largest Photo Ever and Flickr can’t handle it
The TIFF of the photo below is 984 megs, and the JPG is 124 megs! It’s about 16,000 pixels across and very fun to zoom in on as you go down the lane. I dropped it to 12,000 pixels so I could upload, but, I feel a small fleeting-changed!

You can see the Original Size below…

I wish Flickr would offer a premium subscription where I could post huge photos. I’d gladly pay 0 a year for a premium subscription that gets me all sorts of extra features, like huge photos, high quality videos like my Vimeo sub, tier 1 tech support, and all sorts of other goodies.

Another Forest Photo, Hanging at HQ of Flickr Competitor

The fine people at Smugmug (see my port there at have chosen my Bamboo Forest photo to hang inside their headquarters in California. They are really building a 60" lightbox in the rear it. I’ll see it in person in a few weeks when I go visit the crew there. I’m looking forward to it!

Daily Photo – Wormsloe, the Endless Forest of Savannah
My friend Scott Kublin (who made it to my Favorites page on my iPhone… he was at the bottom, but I just went him up above the babysitter) lives in Savannah, so it was excellent to visit him on my small road trip. He commented that regular visitors to Stuck In Customs would doubtless like to see current shots while I am traveling around! So, here it is! But, this one took about 3-4 hours to edit, five cups of coffee, and several pieces of pie. Did you see my small "Buy Trey Chocolate For Energy" there in the right column? Yes, I burn through copious calories to make these things. This one nearly ruined my back, but I am very pleased with it.

Some of you may remember this place from Forest Gump… A lot of it was shot down in Savannah. Besides Wormsloe, I also visited some amazingly temperamental cemeteries, draped in mossy trees. I’ll get to editing those photos another time… possibly when I get back home to Texas!

Food plotting
high calorie

Image by orangebrompton
On the left, being paid some thought of which meals I would need to pack. I finished up taking with me everything I would need to eat that weekend, including freeze dried equipped meals.

On the right, a list of high calorie foods for convenient carrying. I have a very terrible habit when cycling of eating sweet stuff all day, which gives me honey cravings for days afterwards and is doubtless really terrible generally. So I chose to try a less cake-centric menu. (I didn’t end up baking the peanut butter cookies)
