New Content!

I have finally gotten my lazy rear-end moving and uploaded some new content to my website. Three new galleries are now online (links below).

I am also making moves to reorganizing my website. Step one has been to implement a new gallery format. The galleries were created using SimpleViewer Pro. Unfortunately, my long-lasting resistance to using Flash has lost. However, if you do not have flash, the galleries should default to a simple thumbnail view that should still link to the full-res images. (this is important for folks viewing on mobile devices)

Step two is to update the portfolio part of the website. You'll notice a new link to a "gallery". It's under development right now, so there is no content yet. But I will be working on this soon!

Anyway, on to the new images....

This gallery contains random images that I've taken this year. It isn't a big gallery, but I will add to it as time goes on.

In late February, I went on a fishing trip to Toledo Bend Reservoir on the border between Texas and Louisiana. The lake is enormous, and we only explored a small part of it. It is a man-made reservoir that was created by flooding a heavily wooded valley. You'll notice this by the numerous bare stumps sticking out of the water.

This last gallery presents my recent efforts to shoot the local wildflowers. I have been exploring Barker and Addicks reservoirs (particularly George Bush Park and also Bear Creek Pioneers Park) in west Houston.

Local Wildflowers

Lately I have been exploring the "wild" areas nearby in search of flowers. I've been exploring Barker and Addicks reservoirs on foot and on 2 wheels.

I've also been using a new camera - a mirrorless system. More about all this later.

This is also just a test post. I'm still figuring out how to keep my blogs updated from my mobile devices :-)
