I have worked with several enterprise implementations of Drupal and it is a
great CMS, but it is probably overkill for what you are going to do.  I
would recommend, instead, going with a blog type system (like Google's
Blogger or Wordpress.)  If you want to host the site yourself (i.e. with
your own hosting account or server) then Wordpress is your best bet.  If you
want someone else to handle the hosting and you just purchase a domain name
(URL) and point it over to the site, I would recommend blogger.  I use
blogger for my tech blog and I absolutely love it.  You can upload pictures
etc just like any other blog and even full photo albums (galleries.)

Good luck.
