I want each to be accessed by a link within the site and each to be a slide show, assuming the slide show can be manually operated by the viewer.

Well, I’ve got to start somewhere…


I’ve been noodling around for days now trying to figure out what to put in this first post. I really hate that fake Latin stuff so I’ll just have to write my own, natter on about this and that.

I doubt I will be doing much posting in the future but you never know. Perhaps I’ll want to tell the world about trips, adventures as well as images. Still, that’s not why I’m here.

So why am I here?

I’ve been saying for years now that I need to get/do a web site. Friends, family who are not local often ask where they can see my images and, aside from a few shows and the now defunct Red Dot Gallery, the answer is only if I send you a file. Further, colleagues say “if you want to be in the game you have to have a web site.”

My impression, from taking numerous advanced project Media Arts classes where there was an astounding mix of disciplines, is that creating a web site, even the ones that are supposed to be all set up is an incredible amount of work. Not that I object to work; I do it all the time, slower these days but continuously.  It’s the old language applied to peculiar concepts that I shied away from. I just didn’t get it.

A couple of years ago a friend, a photographic artist, took this course and created a web site she uses mostly for travel blogging (she recently created another for her HOA). She had good things to say about the course, even offered to help me set a site up via WordPress, but it never happened. I knew, though, that I could do this if, when, the course was offered at a time I could take it.


OK, so I want to make a portfolio web site. I want to upload images that I’d like others to see and, perhaps, comment on. I am not creating a vehicle for selling images although I will offer then for sale if anyone is interested.

I want to be able to show a variety of images in one place. I mostly do landscape photography, in color and black and white. Some abstracts, some portraits, some composites, some nonsense. I’d like to organize them and present them in such a way that they hang together nicely, that they make sense as a whole as well as individually.

So with that in mind I think I’m try putting an image in this post, just for starters.
