Gallery is an online photo album. You can install it yourself on your webserver, and it will allow you to upload pictures and have others make comments on them. And while I wouldn't swear to it, it looks to my untrained eye that even such lumniaries in the "post family pictures online" game as Ofoto are based on Gallery.

It is written in PHP and is extremely customizable. The website for Gallery is http://gallery.menalto.com

Memory is a gallery
scenes and faces cramming
the long corridor’s white walls
My mother : a Gainsborough,
very detailed, very deft, very sure -
very flat.
Vermeer light makes Dad golden,
while my brother, inevitably,
is a Munch (although, as I recall,
it was always me
Who screamed)

Lowry painted you, though,
featureless as you move
through a grimy , smoke-palled landscape:
you, me, the eighties,
hazy unkept promises,
hints of unrealised hopes,
deliberately blurred into indistinction.
Intellectually, I know you have
eyes, skin, hair, teeth;
I know their colours
(blue, tan, brownish, not-quite white)
remember that you often used to
blink, and occasionally
to bite. I know all this.
I have not forgotten your face.

But you do not wear it here.
I think I need to smudge or
I could never look at you
and then look away.
