    A minor update. I removed my price list for prints because unfortunately, I do not have much time for printing and framing anymore. Since we had our first child, I have had little time for nature photography, much less for selling the photos. I also updated Rich Ditch's link on my links page to his new website.

    Massive update to the travel section. I added several new pages and all of the Italy photos from 2003. There more than 100 new photos in all. I also added a few shots to the wildlife pages. Finally, a few of the large format shots are on the site -- scenics in the travel section. I still have many to add to the landscapes pages, which still need an overhaul. I also added an option to purchase matted prints. I find this to be a popular option, because it saves people money on framing and they can purchase standard frames at an art store. Finally, I revisited my links page, fixing dead links.

    Gosh, I have a lot of updating to do! I have many new photos I want to add, particularly from my trip to Italy during the latter part of 2003. Since it takes me so long to add new photos, though, I might as well start the updates with my pricing, which has been too low for too long. Unfortunately, I barely was breaking even when I sold prints. I have increased pricing slightly, mainly for the framed prints. Frames have become more expensive from my supplier, so I have to pass along the increased costs. The prints are still inexpensive.

    Not much new, but I cleaned up the links page, fixing and deleting dead and broken links. I also fixed the captions for Bixby Bridge and Rocky Creek Bridge.
  • August 15, 2002
    Added thirteen new photos, including some Whitetail Deer photos and a Black Bear photo taken at Shenandoah National Park to the wildlife pages. They are on page five. I had to make that page a little longer than the others to avoid making a page six with only a couple of thumbnails. When I add more wildlife photos, I'll move them over to even things out. There are now 106 wildlife photos, by far the largest gallery. I think the travel gallery is still the best, though. I also rearranged the photo lists in the text index so that they are in alphabetic order. It was pretty much useless before. I don't think anyone uses the text index, anyway, but it helps me keep track of how many photos of a particular subject I have uploaded.

    I received an e-mail today from Jim Erhardt, the Editor of Naturephotographers.net, notifying me that he has chosen my site as the inaugural winner of the monthly Nature Photographers Network "Showcase Web Site Award." I am very flattered, and have added the GIF at the bottom of my index page to show off a little. Since I was messing with the index page anyway, I also took the opportunity to add some ALT tags to the graphic links. I have not added any new images to the galleries, but I will soon. I have some Whitetail Deer from Shenandoah National Park that I intend to add to the wildlife pages.

    Fixed a few typos, added a few links, and corrected the link for Gloria Hopkins's site. She changed her site name, and I referred to it at least twice in these pages. I fixed two references, but I may have missed one or two others. If you find any broken links, please e-mail me and I'll fix them.

    Okay. I'm done for now. I rearranged all of the thumbnails on the pages like I had wanted, putting my favorite shots nearer the first pages of each category and arranging each thumbnail page in a more pleasing format. It didn't take too long to move the thumbnails around, but it was a bit of a problem that some of the descriptions referred to other photos as if they were in a series, so I had to fix that. I ran into even more typos, which really are embarrassing. Hopefully I fixed everything, but if something seems screwy, please let me know. Any future updates will be of more recent scans.
  • March 25, 2002
    I went ahead and finished the descriptions on the travel pages. All of the descriptions are done. I still plan to reorganize the photos, to put the best ones up front, as I mentioned below.
  • March 24, 2002
    I am nearly finished with the initial pages. Tonight, I completed the descriptions for all but the last ten or so travel photos before running out of steam. I finished the other descriptions earlier this week, and added the links page yesterday. I also fixed a few more typos over the last couple of days. Embarrassingly, I noticed that I still had several of them. Because I am writing the pages with Notepad, I do not have a spell checker, and typos are bound to creep in here and there.

    In the next update, besides adding the final few descriptions, I intend to rearrange the photos. Perhaps I will add a few new ones, too. I want to rearrange the existing photos because I now realize it would be best to put my best photos on the first page of thumbnails. Most people don't have the patience to click through several pages of thumbnails to see them all.

    Filled in the descriptions for the first three pages of wildlife shots and the first thirty travel photos. I still have a bunch to go. Added a new photo to the wildlife pages. Cleared up some typos (please notify me of any typos!) and some descriptions thanks to my big and bad friend Obi. I should probably write the links page soon; looking at the statistics logs, I see lots of people click on it only to get the dreaded 404 Error.

    I'm slowly but surely getting these pages written. The problem is that I generally only have time to work on it on weekends, when I'd rather be out shooting. I have put up the rest of the images, but have about a billion descriptions to add to the photo pages. All of the landscape photos are up and have titles, descriptions, and shooting data. The rest do not, but the thumbnails will pull up the larger images now. I also still have to write a "photo links" page.
  • January 15, 2002
    Added a text-only index and put up the travel thumbnails and the first 40 (first two pages) of landscapes photos.
  • December 11, 2001
    Put up the thumbnails on the landscapes page, but they do not yet link to the larger photos. Geez, this is taking long!
  • September 15, 2001
    Made a few changes to the about page, including adding an equipment list.
  • August 26, 2001
    Finally put something other than the "coming soon" page up. Still no photos added. This page, the about page, and the home page are the only active pages right now. Other links will return a 404 error.
  • July 27, 2001
    Put up the red fox at IBSP photo with a "coming soon" label. Only the index page is active.
Return to the home page.
