This week’s post will be a little out of the established pattern…. hope you won’t mind. I have just started to refine my mobile site for those of you who live on your phones and tablets. Seems like anything that makes the looking easier has got to be a good thing, right? To that end, I am also including a new folder of random favorites in my Wedding Portfolio on this blog.
If you visit here from time to time, I am sure you will recognize many of these images but I think some of the new visitors might welcome a chance to see some of these without having to dig through the archives.
So grab a cup of coffee and come wander through a lot of pictures. Let me know if you have any questions… every one of these has a story behind it even if it’s just a small one. ;0) Continue reading →
So many cranes… it was all bigger than I expected. We walked from Wall Street over to the windy construction site… big enough that you can’t really see across it very well. Caught in the steady traffic of the walking rush hour, we worked our way over to The Winter Garden where there is a place you can look into the site. Couldn’t get past the inner images of the way the streets must have looked that day.
Today, they are dedicating a more beautiful space to so many people… I wonder if we will ever heal.
Well, I’m not sure if this a a loose ends thing or just separation anxiety but I had to do it.
Yesterday was the full launch of my new website. It meant saying goodbye to my very old but much loved site… an unnerving process. It’s a little like that really soft, corduroy shirt I can’t seem to give up… it’s hanging in the back of my closet, elbows pretty thin and it certainly doesn’t fit me anymore but it’s that corduroy shirt.
The new site works well and looks pretty snazzy. Most importantly, I have the skeleton key so if I need to add or change images, I can do so and that is a real luxury. I wrote to my original designer to tell her about the switch and I could read the smiles in her reply… we had a good run. The old site was 7 years old which is like dog years in the tech world… you can look at the images and see a huge shift in quality alone. The old images were mostly film, of course, and scanned from prints which means all sorts of losses compared to today’s shoot and upload directness.
The new site will be a little sparse for a bit…I have just a few wedding galleries on there for now. I had hoped to come out of the gate in full stride but it will take some time to do it right and that makes a difference to me. The plan is to add more weddings and rework my portrait and personal archives with new galleries for those as well. The end result should tell you that I am capable of a range of good work.
Today, I pulled all of the old site jpgs out of their dusty folder and put them up into 3 small web galleries in case you want to see them. There is one for weddings, one for portraits and one for my personal work….the stuff I do for me. The shot above was an infrared day in Seattle with some good friends.I really miss infrared film but it’s nice to revisit it from a good scan like this one.
I hope you can see past the low resolution issue in the old site and just enjoy the content. As soon as I can get my taxes done and my other clients caught up, there will be new galleries to explore. And maybe my lawn will get mowed.
