I'm James and this is my trip blog. Here you'll find photo-centric travelogues most likely of no interest to you. But if you insist on looking you'll notice some are posted in real time (for example, a month in Paris) and some are posted after the fact (Cappadocia by balloon). Doesn't matter, but don't be confused.

Note that while orange text is always a link, grey text can be a link, too. I know, confusing. For example, if you click on the caption under a photo the photo's metadata is displayed. I did this because, while I like orange, there's a limit to the amount of orange that I want to see.
Home shows either the latest post or, if it's been awhile, a random photo. From here you can navigate forward (to right) or backward (to left) in time.

Posts shows a chronological list of posts.

Trips shows a list of, well, trips.

Rand(om) picks a post and shows it.

3x3 shows a grid of up to 9 photos. The photos are in chronological order with newest in upper left. From here you can navigate forward in time (to right) or backward in time (to left), in 9-photo chunks.

Photo shows the last photo or a new random photo. Random is fun, eh?

Find (post and photos) has two paths because posts are categorized by keywords and photos are identified by location.
 - Find post by keyword. The list of keywords is organized by category, usually country.
 - Find by keyword & location. Pick from combined list of post keywords and photo locations.

Help shows this page.
Links in posts and photos
Map shows the location via OpenStreetMaps. This isn't reliable with the x100V photos though because the Fuji isn't good at asking the iPhone for gps coordinates.

Click on a post's title to see the last-edited date; the post's URL; and shortcuts to first/last in set if post is part of a set.

Click on a photo's title (the text under the photo) for more information on the photo.

Click on a keyword (a word, usually a location, after the post's date) to search for posts that share that tag.

Click on L, M, or S to see Large, Medium, or Small photos. This is not always an option.
3x3 photos page
The 3x3 photos page is an unfortunately-complicated page. Here are the essentials:

In the upper left is a left-arrow (<) link that, if present, navigates to an older 3x3 page. The upper right has a similar arrow to see newer photos.

The letters A P C E L A T N F S M correspond to filters for favorite photos based on category: A is for All photos. Others are People, City, Event, Landscape, Art, Transportation, Nature, Food, Structure, and Memorable, the latter being sort of a best of the best.

All dates shows all photos whereas you can limit to photos uploaded (not captured) in the past 31 days, 7 days, or 1 day.

Capture order orders photos by capture date whereas Added order orders by date added.

Photos shows the 3x3 display of thumbnails whereas Locations displays a page of locations for filtering.
