Adopting my blog to “HTML 5” – part 2 – the structure


Today I have selected this photograph of leaf veins as it reflects closely on the subject of my code changes behind this blog. Similarly to the leaf’s vein structure, which creates here a beautifully presented hierarchy pattern an Internet page has its own structure called HTML.

There are some beautiful websites on the Internet, created by graphic designers using a “paint” applications, which totally fall apart if seen without CSS style templates. This happens because these graphic designers do not understand information architecture offered by HTML.

If you are here just because of my photographs you may find the text following this point too “technical” and it does not relate to photography directly.

Castlereagh street scaffolding


Today, Castlereagh street reminded cordoned off by police after the 20m section of scaffolding has partially collapsed threatening a major disaster. The structure is still very unstable as you can see from the photograph and is a major concern for both engineers and police. As it stands there is no easy and safe way to recover it nor is there a way to dismantle it without endangering workmen involved.

It will be interesting to see how the authorities and builders resolve this issue. I am certain a lot of questions will be asked to explain how it could have occurred in the first place. Luckily no one got hurt.
