.: welcome to our site

Welcome to the  Hocking's at Canberra web site. This web site is hosted on a server located in our home in northern Canberra, ACT, Australia.

This means that it's upload speed is constrained by the speed of our internet connection & may further be affected by internet traffic  from other computers sharing our connection. So please be patient!


.: what it's for

The main purpose of this web site is to allow us to display & share photos taken at family events & on holidays & other trips.

Naturally, all the photos on this website are copyright to me, Peter Hocking, unless otherwise noted.

If you'd like a copy of one or some of these photos or wish to use them somewhere else, please click here to send me an email asking for permission.

.: to check out the photos

The photos are sorted by year, so click on the button for the relevant year, then click on the links for the set of photos.

To best view the photos make sure that  your screen is calibrated so that you can see all the shades in the image below;

Grey scale bar

You must be able to see all this:
-- 20 sections of equal width and different tone
-- the darkest section must be pure black
-- the lightest section must be pure white
-- there must be no hint of colour anywhere along the grey spectrum
If you don't see 20 different tones, you may need to lower the contrast.
If black is not pure black, you need to either darken the monitor or adjust the black point.
If white is not pure white, you need to either lighten the monitor or adjust the white point.
If both black and white are not pure, try to boost the overall contrast or adjust both, the black and white points.
If there is a colour cast, try and adjust the colour balance. Some software allows you to do this separately for both ends of the
grey spectrum

.: thank you!
