Thoughts on Photography

Mythology of Photos - Saturday, 27 Feb 2016 23:00 -

We all have our favorite photos, some we took, some were taken by others.  We print them, save them, buy them and share them.  We share the story about the photo with everybody that will listen or we hide it away and keep it all for ourselves.  We create a mythology surrounding our photos.

The mythology of photos is interesting because it can be made up of feelings, memories and dreams.  The stories about how we took the photo, how we found just the right place and the people that were there.  We weave a tale about the photo and give it a name.  We would be crushed if we lost the photo, not because the photo was precious but rather the mythology surrounding it.

The photo is not what is special, we forget this sometimes, it is the mythology we have created around the photo that is special to us.

I Am BACK - Friday, 26 Feb 2016 00:00 -

I have been busy, too busy.  I have edited my website's code, I have sorted through a huge backlog of photos.  The long days of not posting should have come to an end long ago but the time has finally come.

Don't expect much on the blog, no tips, no tech, no tricks, just my thoughts on photography.


Sharing - Wednesday, 15 May 2013 06:00 -

I have been trying te clean up the UI here and as part of that effort I was struggling with how to add social sharing buttons.  I didn't watch them to be big and obtrusive but I wanted you to be able to spot them.  I have added them to the strip below every image and after every blog post.

You can now share via Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and eMail.

I don't really use social networking sites but I understand that the rest of the world does.  I actually think it is nice for some things and I know that it is a big part of the internet.  I want you to be able to click and share from my site with minimal effort and make it easy for your friends to see my photography.  Click, Share, Spread the Word.

On a side note, I have some basic info for the photo sales posted.  I hope to have the checkout and cart automated soon but I will not promise a date.

Print Sales - Thursday, 14 Mar 2013 22:38 -

Changes to print sales and the way orders are taken.

I have been working on a plan B for quite some time but have not been able to complete it in time for this change so the coding will go on in the background and one day there will be a new shipping cart.  Until this happens you can visit my ordering page linked from every image and this will put you in contact with me and I can provide details for ordering an image.

Thank you and I hope to be able to fulfill your photographic needs.

This is a funny little comic that I thought was appropriate to here.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Expectational Debt - Friday, 28 Oct 2011 16:00 -

I posted some time back that I was changing things here.  The transition to the new site has been delayed over the last couple months for various reasons.  This has created a case of expectational debt where you are expecting something and I have not delivered it.

The site will be updated but it will soon go into splash page mode to relieve some of this expectational debt.

Thanks for your understanding and check back later.
