You may have been re-directed to my photography page if you were looking for Shane’s Flying Disc Show. Dream Weaver just blew me away. I could only get so much help from Go Daddy before they refused to help me get through the hard parts of web pages, like connecting FTP sites with Dreamweaver and Go Daddy.
I am utilizing Facebook, FlickR, Youtube, Vimeo and WordPress to bring you Shane’s Flying Disc Show and Shane K. Smith Photography. I have been a photographer and Flying Disc Thrower since elementary School. I made my first money with a camera in High School and my first money with a Frisbee in 1978. I also made money by teaching Tennis since I was 13. I am writing this in 2020.
I am going to set my menus up on my web pages so that Shane’s Flying Disc Show comes up first. Then all my other stories will fill in alphabetically.
Thanks for showing up in here!
Please make time to click on follow and fill out the email alert part near the bottom of the page. Share on Facebook or other sites. I put some tunes at the bottom of each page. Please come back often. I get motivated knowing someone is out there!
As of 20200514, I temporarily deactivated Facebook so I could concentrate on this project. I’ll be back on Facebook soon. I am shooting for a return to Facebook by June 12, 2020.
To get to the best of Shane’s Flying Disc Show please find me in the menu above.
Then I do a 180 round house kick and use the Flickr albums as embedded slideshow panels because I can’t afford the web space on Word Press. Some of the Flickr viewers have between 500 to 16,000 photos in them. That overheats the internet and if you are in an album that should have more photos in it, click around on the viewer and it will take you right to flickr to finish off!
That’s easy for you to say! It took me ten years to find the slideshow button! So We can use two styles. One way you can go through our photos one by one manually. Or I can do an occasional slide show with it.
South Sliders is a little tricky and takes some finesse on the phone especially. I was finally able to get my web page to load on just a telephone connection. I couldn’t break into Wal-Mart’s wi fi so I used my phone’s connection. When you see South Sliders a couple of Slide Shows will move the photos every five seconds or you can push one of those dots to get to another photo. The FlickR slider is touchy on the phone. I found if I barely touch on the far-right side in the middle, the arrows come up and I can surf each slider with my thumbs. If I bump it too hard it takes me to Flickr.

You can pause the Doobie Brothers or let them loop on. I have more tunes at the bottom of the page. You can also click the > or < to make the slides move faster!
Hover your mouse over the albums below and click away. I rely heavily on the < and > keys. I often hold one > down to watch my life flash before me.
The above slider is a tour of Shari Shue Sidebottom’s Older Sister’s gas pump collection.

My 1975 RIP album is not complete. We have been known to put all the way alive people in here. Just ask Frank White or Ricky Morris. Since I have combined 1973 to 1977 my information is piece mealed. I’d rather be honest about it because what I don’t know will totally amaze you!

If this album loads it should play over 16,000 photos. If it doesn’t you have to go to FlickR to see them. The slider has about three different FlickR links built in it. Hover your mouse to find the link that works for you.
This Particular album is a bear! The slider view here only shows 6 pages of 162. The beauty is, you can go to flickr by clicking on the links around the frame.

The Deals gave Shane permission to publish these collections!
All of these SlickR Flickrs are in working order. It took me two years to find the right formula. That means if you line up and touch the middle of the far right of the photo, magic happens. You get a cursor. Keep clicking on that cursor and you can see your friends fast or slow. You can also click on the flickr link if you want to view them the flickR way! Don’t let the top photo fool you. That is called a feature photo. It stands alone.
You might think these albums are duplicated but they aren’t.
Some of your photos may have gotten squeezed while viewing Flickr on WordPress. If that bothers you you can view the photo on Flickr and get back to normal!
Judy and William! Thank You so much for putting this together. The before and after segment had to be particularly tedious and time consuming. I really admire the both of you!
All I can say is Thank You to the man smart enough to code the WordPress FlickR Glitch. He sure saved me a lot of web space!
Are you confused yet? For a year or two I could run large amounts of photos on my WordPress page. This saved me money and web space. Then all of a sudden my flickr “South Sliders” quit working. They would only link to FlickR. Now this was bad magic. The WordPress reps blamed FlickR. Then a really smart beautiful tech at FlickR showed me why the fault was with WordPress. So for a year I couldn’t run South Sliders. I had to use valuable WordPress Real Estate. Then one day I stumbled on SlickR FlickR.
All of a sudden everything works again. I didn’t have to go back and correct many posts. I bought the pro SlickR. But haven’t figured out how to enter the codes yet to present different styles of displays.
So for now you have to figure out just where to put your mouse or touch on your phone. For example this awesome photo of Mar is the feature photo to lead you to the page. The bottom photo is actually 142 photos. Make the slider go by touching the edge of the middle of the right side. A cursor pops up. You can scroll as fast as your memory on your computer will pull. Or you can go slow. Or you can make it go to FlickR by clicking on the hyper-links to Flickr.
Just an info type. Some of the photos get stretched in the process. I don’t know why. But I am always trying to learn something!
These next two albums are located on FlickR. But they will play here on WordPress by magic. You take your mouse an hover it over the middle of the far right side of the album then a cursor appears. They will also bump and hyper-link to FlickR. You can view them slowly or quickly by keeping your mouse of the cursor. They move as fast as your Ram will let it go. Sometimes the jump from FlickR to WordPress bends the photo out of shape. But it is always something! The very top photo is called a feature photo. So there is no need to click all over it.
I have a bonus Beach Babe photo in this album.
Hopefully Julie will aim us at some of her photos.

This is an interesting side effect. I was hoping I could juggle adobe and wordpress. But for now The animation effect is still scrolling or appearing to load on the WordPress end. It may mean that i use the collage on spark but not put an animation in the display.
Update 20210809. The .mp4 created by adobe only takes 844kb. Problem solved!
My theory has some merit. This method leaves me with some space saving options.
I collect many images from my friends and assemble them into one place. Thanks to the Safrits for sharing these awesome photos.
