That I just scanned.

But of course the site waits untill I finally realize my freind beside me has a scanner to decide we can't post image files.

I would just like to :rolleyes: at my luck.

I now have 20 damn pictures of Ferrero, and likely about 22 of others sitting on my harddrive, doing nothing.

ooh oooh good news!

Someone is helping me make a geocities site (alright, so he's doing it all himself, but still) - so that i will be able to post a link and you can see them :D

Excellent! :bounce: I hope it doesn't take too long. ;)

The timing on this really does suck. :( I was going to suggest that you post them on the wtaworld, either in the atp section or in the Marshy Forest thread.

But at least you finally found a scanner! :bounce:

Well I didn't scan all my pics yet.

There is one from montreal last year, and the rest from Toronto and US OPen this year.

www.geocities.com/becca_becca_11

It's a directory, and you have to click on the pics to figure out which is which... half are of Ferrero. The rest vary between Roddick, Lapentti, Fabrice, Henman, Kiefer, Nalbandian, Robredo and some others.

Some of them are huge though.

Since it's the first time I've used a scanner I didn't know untill I was almostdone that i could make them smaller :o

But yeah - if any of them are good, you can use them on your site tennishack - you'd have to resize them first though :o

But a few are good :)

I should so add - the US Open picstures turned out terrible ... I blame it on the hair :o

Layla

OMG, these pics were totally worth the wait. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: Great close-ups. :eek: I love the huge ones, they make Juanqui seem so close. ;) :angel: Seriously, great job Becca! :D You should go to more tournaments and provide us with pics.

Thank you so much for this. :)

And lol, you SHOULD blame it on the hair. ;)

Some of the pics of other players turned out REALLY well - like the one of Kiefer might be the best I have taken.

I have many that I didnt scan, but will eventually.

The site keeps crashing though because the pics are so big or something lol. So yeah - it will be back up in an hour now lol.

And the guy who did it for me put me on there without me knowing LOL.

The two of Fed turned out quite well was all.

And the "Kafelinibutt" photo - as I like to call it - turned out well too. If you've seen it you understand why I call it that :o

Layla

LOL! No, I've only seen some of Ferrero's pics before the sight crashed. :( I'll check them out tomorrow.

*slap* Bagel.

The site has been up for2 hours now and has crashed three times :rolleyes:

But thank the Bagel for doing it even if geocities is dumb :p

Rebecca, you are an :angel: Those pics are gorgeous. It's really great that you can get so close. One of those outside courts, what a view :eek:. I must get to see him before he wins all those grand slams and have to play every match in Stadium Court.

Thank you thank you thank you, for those beautiful pics.:)

Becca, I can't see them.

Geocities is seriously crap. They crash for a variety of reasons, and I have to say I don't think you could have picked a worse place to put them.

I could host them if you'd like, or you can get your own account at www.freeservers.com It's a great service that holds 12MB. I'd be willing to resize some of them if you sent them to me.

Nice pics :D

he's looking at you in one :eek:

Scott- I think that he is thinking "who is that loser standing on the bench gawking at me?" - because when everyone else was getting up and leaving I hopped on the bench and stood up so i could see over everyone and take it :D

Tennishack - if you can see them tomorrow as I said, you are welcome to whichever ones you want to put on your site.

I will check freeservers out though, thanks.

Chloe le Bopper
12-01-2002, 09:16 AM
Okay I put a lot of them on www.queenrebecca.freeservers.com

So those of you who can't get on geocities can look on that one.

However right now it really sucks, I haven't bothered to caption any of my pictures etc etc.

The first two pic pages are Ferrero, the third is other players.

As I said though, untill the other half are resized this is the best I can do on freeservers.

I'm going to fix it up tomorrow so I actually have a good pic on the first page and not just a test image :p and actually have something that makes sense written lol

Nice pix of Rogi and Robredo!! I too was at the Rogi/Wayne doubles match -- he was so fast and it was over before I could blink!!! Nice to see him having fun on the court!

Now to check out Juanqui! ;)

isn't it great how that tennis centre is so damn ghetto that you are w/in stabbing range of the players???...too bad next summer is the last time they'll be using that place....i'll be really ready this time when the wta comes...

Well, I finally managed to see some of the Geocities pics. Wonderful :) It gave me the temporarily unavailable crap after I had seen all but one of the pics :rolleyes: Anyway, I'll resize these, too :)

jcsting - Yes I LOVE courts 1 and 2 for that very reason. Youll notice none of the pics I put up are from center. I have a few of Safin from center but they are too far away etc (and I had decent, lower level seats that day).

Anyhow.. I'm going to MOntreal next summer, which has a court one similar to Toronto's. Which means, that *crossing fingers*, if they stick players I like on the outer courts again, I'll get good pics :D

And if not I will have to wait outside the stadium at the beginning and end of the match in a scary hoard of people :D

Chloe le Bopper

It's my freinds camera I was using. I used my camera in Montreal 2001, which is why all but one of those pictures didnt' make the cut ;)

There are some on the geocities site that never quite made it over yet (one of these days I will do it).

Anyhow Kat, I emailed you a while ago and said you can use some of them if you want, just give me credit ;)

Kat!
12-14-2002, 04:12 PM
I didn't realise you put them on a site Rebecca :D thanks very much!

Chloe le Bopper
12-14-2002, 08:47 PM
No problem.

When they finally all make it over to the freeservers site, and I scan the rest of them of other players and stuff, I'll bump this up and let everyone know.

Becca --

As I put up on my site, I'm still working on the pictures archives; everything else is completely updated as of yesterday. I'm going to retool the pages, then have a look and see how many of your pics I can use, because you really took nice pics :)

I'll let you know which ones I use.

Chloe le Bopper
12-15-2002, 07:13 PM
Thanks - an no problem TH.

I really don't mind if they are put up anywhere, as long as I get the credit *is a nark*

So let me know so i can take a look when it's all done :)

And Kat - I look forward to the reopening so to speak, of your site!
