About the photographs
In December 1999, I traveled to Vietnam. My guide and companion was my son, Jonathan, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin. After he received his Ph.D., Jonathan married Nan and moved to Singapore, then Hong Kong as a university professor. Jesse was born in Spring, 2008. In December 2008, my husband, Mark and I traveled to Hong Kong then we all headed to Hanoi where Jonathan introduced his friends to baby Jesse.
About the presentations
I have been experimenting with various software options for presenting my images on the web and am using this section about visits to Vietnam to illustrate some of approaches I could take.
- a) Vietnam 1999 and b) Hanoi 2008 represent the linear presentation that can include a narrative.
- Hanoi SV is Simple Viewer Gallery
- Hanoi nexgen is a gallery program that includes a slide show. It also will show each image against a dark background if the thumbnail is selected.
- Hanoi-FlipBook uses Flipping Book software. Images can appear on a single page or be split. I am still working out dimensions and use of text, but this presents the idea. (a navigation bar is possible but I chose not to include it in this example.
