I took a few poor images for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon 2011 "Torch Relay" on Oct. 14. At least one is in today's blog entry in DeHaan Services: "Records and Relays Before the 2011 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon".

Actually, I had tried taking several images before and after this one; but the digital camera did not register them.

Unfortunately this was the best image I captured.

Writing Tip

Today's writing tip is about photography, for those times you want to take pictures to cover some event.

My prior experience in capturing images for articles has been with "still life". I could arrange some object, snap a photo, check the result and try again.

Today I had to point and click while people were working on their own schedule.

Writing Tip: Practice with the equipment and under trying conditions, before the main event. Know how to focus, zoom and take the pictures quickly.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
