January- "2 down, 4 to go"
My regular post-Christmas visit to the Severn Valley Railway turned into a post-New Year one instead, and I ended up visiting on the penultimate day of 2018 season (which I'm going to treat as a 2018 visit, so I consider all of my regular heritage railways visited during the year).  Although the weather was very overcast, it was quite a productive visit, which was perhaps just as well, as at some point, I'd managed to delete the files for "Steam Locomotives - UK Other", a fact that I discovered during the initial work on the new gallery indexes, but the collection was about to get converted anyway, so I would have resolved the issue during January one way or another.
As far as the HTML 5 conversion went, I have managed to lay out a basic framework for the new gallery indexes, although it does need some fleshing out.  My in-situ test on the 27th was for the most part successful, although one major issue with site-searching cropped up, which I think is down to my file structure, and may not be simple to resolve (although I may now know what the problem is).   I also managed to convert nine collections, which resulted in "Transport" becoming the second gallery to be completely converted (I bit the bullet on "Steam Locomotives - LNER and converted that collection, despite the loss of 5 of the 24 photographs from the previous version).  
I've given the matter of the changeover to the new gallery indexes some thought, and I've decided that to delay the changeover until the weekend of 30th and 31st March.   At this point, I feel that it would be a good idea to convert the remaining collections of the "Nature" and "Heritage Properties" galleries before the changeover occurs, and if I can finish "Art" as well, so much the better.   I haven't quite decided on how I will handle the interfacing between the remaining unconverted collections, and doing this should simplify the issue.    As of the end of January, 1 "Nature" collection, 7 "Heritage Properties" collections and 3 "Art" ones remain, with the last "Nature" collection next in the queue.
I also suspect that once I have installed the new gallery indexes, I will turn my attention to HTML 5 conversions of my railway sites (and hopefully finally get "Railways of the Vale of Evesham" onto its own domain).   This is because at some point later in 2019, I intend to do a computer upgrade, and I don't want the hassle of re-installing the old web design software, as re-installing the applications I do need will probably be enough trouble (Paint Shop Pro and Microsoft Office upgrades very likely).   I can probably manage to convert the remaining photo collections without it, but the railway sites might be a different matter.  This probably means that the remaining event collections not listed below may well not be converted until the back end of the year, as I hope to have a somewhat less traumatic summer than I had last year.
I would perhaps like to do some photography in February as well.

I have yet to make a final decision on Evesham River Festival 2011 and the Evesham 10k run 2009; I feel that leaving these as examples of events where I was Official Photographer might not be a bad idea.
