1st post - background

Several years ago I blogged. This was before the word existed. The entries were always based on photos I had taken, things my friends did, and things I was interested in. Today I am writing because I can't break into that old website (hosted on yahoo's Geocities - my username and password combo that I do remember don't seem to grant me access to the HTML of that site). I like the fact that the site remains up though. There are some pretty cool things on the site. I will eventually move some of it over here.

So my purpose for this new site is currently two-fold. One - I can't seem to get Google to find any of the images in my Photoshelter Archive. The Photoshelter Archive is a great tool, but if I can't get the search term "Denver Tour de Fat photos" to link to my album titled "Denver Tour De Fat Photos" then we have a problem. If by chance you are looking for photos of the event on September 13, please see my Photoshelter Archive page. You will find the photos there.

Two - I have ideas. I plan to share some of these ideas here. They involve voting with your dollars, supporting local, sustainable economies, among other subjects. I am a photographer with interest in the current state of the profession of photography, the tools of the trade, and other photographers, particularly photojournalists.
