Winter brings a level of hibernation that at first seems cozy, but after nearly four months of snow cover begins to feel like a cross between lethargy and freezer burn. I have tried to find ways to inspire myself this long winter. Photographs of spring flowers just dont cut it when it has been weeks since there's been any sign of a blue sky. Imagining a Caribbean vacation is nice, but unrealistic. What's a guy to do?
I decided to work on my website. Yeah, I know... not terribly romantic. The frustrating reality is that I would much rather be out photographing icy landscapes than sitting indoors, plugging away at the code for this new website. In fact, I prefer almost anything to having to do website work... so much so that the last update I made on my website was over a year ago. It was overdue for a major revision. So much of my current focus is on portraiture and yet the old website just had pictures of puppies. Hmmm. Not very representative. It also lacked a means for people to contact me. Not very professional.
I would like to think that the revision is looking good. I am still struggling with a few minor issues which have not been released onto the live website yet. Hoping to wrap up those loose ends this weekend. In the meantime, if you find things you aren't happy with on my new website, please let me know. I am always curious to hear how things work for others.
