I just bought another 5 m bandwidth totalling 35 m per month
my site is too sucessful or my photos are to PHAT

Dear Chris,

Your “addiction” Web site has reached its monthly
bandwidth(data transfer) limit. As you know, your hosting
package includes a monthly bandwidth allotment, and we reserve
the right to stop serving any site whose bandwidth exceeds its
allotment.

I've noticed that you're posting more images to LJ lately -- I think that LJ may be the main suck on your the bandwidth.

Part of the problem could be that every time someone whose friended you or belongs to the same LJ communities that you do refreshes their LJ friends page, and you've img'd an image from the intervention site on your journal and/or on any of those communities, it "calls" the image and debits your bandwidth.

I'd suggest putting images behind an LJ-cut or to post a thumbnail that people could click on to get the full picture. Just cutting out the calls from people refreshing friends' pages who have already looked at your image will probably cut out a significant portion of the bandwidth use.
