Title • just chillin'

I'm not entirely sure about this one so I'll be interested to hear your thoughts. When I first processed it, I liked it: it's a reflection, I like the way the characters are posed, and I like the way the figure in the foreground – the one with the skateboard – is highlighted. But I'm not entirely convinced that it works, but I'm not sure why. Oh well, I don't have anything else to put up, and it's certainly not a disaster, so here you go.

On another matter: what are your views on the long-term storage of digital media? The reason I ask is that I've just bought three hard drives: a 400GB internal drive (to replace a 200GB one) and two 500GB external drives. The reason I went for two external drives is so that I can swap them, keeping one backup at work, one at home. Having three copies of just about everything might so a bit like overkill, but I'm paranoid about losing stuff. And I know I could use DVD's, which would probably be cheaper, but I'm not sure that I trust them for any length of time – hard drives seem like a more robust solution. Anyway, I'd be interested to hear how everyone else is dealing with this.
