The Photo Drop Box

It's Back!

Have you ever wanted to go back and look at what was in the Photo Drop Box from the shipboard network? Missing some important photo or just want to take a stroll down memory lane? Well now you can. In Hong Kong I purchased a large external hard disk and made a complete copy of everything in the Public Folder and the Photo Drop Box.

I've taken every photo from the named country folders, created thumbnails and posted them here. If there is sufficient demand I may also post the contents of the Folders By Name folder where many people were collecting various photos. Please note that I have not sorted these photos and as such there are many misplaced items. There are over 87,000 photos in the archive I have, over 50,000 here on this site, and I just don't have the time to go through that many. To the best of my knowledge this constitutes the largest collection of Semester at Sea photos on the Internet.

Nota Bene: I cannot respond requests for the full size images, I will do what I can by my time is limited. Please exercise discretion when requesting that I provide copies. I will also remove photos from this site either at the request of ISE or with good reason but not because your teeth are not white enough. All media remains property of the original photographer.

News / Updates

  • 2008-04-10: I'm currently in the process of rearranging this website. The files from the Photo Drop Box are now located at:
  • 2006-07-18: Ok, scratch that on the request system. I'm scaling all the images to 800 pixels along their longest axis and uploading them all. This should easily fit within my resource constraints and allow large enough copies of the images for anything except printing.
  • 2006-07-16: I'm in the process of adding a system to allow people to request full size versions of the images. Because I can't host all the content I need you to tell me what to host. Each picture will have a link below it labeled Request a larger copy.. Clicking this link will create an entry in a database, once a day a program on my computer will look at that database, prepare the images and upload them. Once this is completed the link on the page will change to View larger copy. I also plan on adding an option to notify you by email when the photos are uploaded.
