Testing 1, 2, 3

As regular readers will know, I will be traveling to Israel in a little less than 2 weeks’ time. I am intending to blog about the trip as it unfolds, and so this is a test to make sure that including photos taken using my iPad in my blog posts will work smoothly.

For the purpose of the test, I’ll post two photos from a rehearsal for a Metropolitan Youth Orchestra concert here in Indianapolis last month.

Here is one included via Flickr:

And here is a second one directly from the iPad’s photo collection (since the photos were taken using the iPad2):

The photos are from the rehearsal for the annual Jazz & Jam concert, when the MYO orchestras perform together with local jazz musicians.

It looks like this should work, but feel free to comment, as a way of nodding your head to my “can you hear me now?”

UPDATE: a third photo uploaded a different way:

    OK, so it looks like ones that are uploaded to WordPress don’t display while ones uploaded to Flickr do…

    UPDATE: Ignore that comment, it seems to work, it may just take a few seconds to display properly.

    The second photo shows as broken in Google Reader (I’m reading on an iPad) but shows up when I click through. Presumably Google Reader has an older version of the post, since it doesn’t show your updated with 3rd photo.

    Thanks. Hopefully when I blog in Israel, people will click through, and so any such mishaps will not be a major problem.

    2nd picture shows up. Just that sometimes it does, sometimes not, click on it and eventually it shows up. I think it is just slow in connecting/loading. No worry…it will work. Make sure not to use public transportation (i.e. bus stops), and be EXTRA careful around markets. Expect many Uzi’s, and being grilled when you depart back to the US by Israeli security. And have a Maccabee, and some shawarma…

    I look forward to pics from Israel, I wish Apple would have put a better camera in the iPad. Outside pics are not too bad, but my inside ones are pretty horrible.

    @google-2e495af83153bef01b686a6c2268489d:disqus , I expect that all I’ll have to share will be outdoor photos – not the inside of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, for instance.

    @648e12af5a5b0bf9cc8f0b9b4630360d:disqus , when I say outdoor photos, I don’t have in mind markets or bus stops!  :-)

    James,

    I am digging at Ashkelon!  If you in the area feel free to shoot me an e-mail and we can give you a tour of the site.
