Street in Barcelona redone

Facebook comments are no more active

After a lot of consideration I decided to disable Facebook commenting system on my blog today and only leave Google+ for that (I used both up to now). There are several reasons for such a decision but the main one is that it slowed down the blog significantly.

In my tests it seems that loading Facebook social plugin could take as much as 30% of blog's loading time (even a few seconds)! Perhaps I implemented something wrong or maybe Google doesn't like FB and artificially slows it down :) who knows.

The other reason is that not so many of you used it in fact. Most of the comments on my blog are done via Google+ commenting system. Funny thing is that even those of you who visit my blog by clicking on the links on Facebook decide to use Google+ to write comments. So hopefully this change won't impact number of comments much.

Daily post - street in Barcelona

I don't like to repost my photos but sometimes I just have to. Previously I shared this photo here (with a short description). But recently I gave this shot yet another try... and in fact I like this new version much more. It has sort of vintage feel to it due to its tonality.

BTW to get such look I used one of my autumn presets for Lightroom. You can download whole collection for free by clicking on the link in previous sentence.
