Welcome to the New and Improved!

This weekend I quietly rolled out the latest version of this website. I completely redesigned and reprogrammed it and along the way I added a ton of new features.

Over the years I have released several iterations of with various feature enhancements along the way. This release is my most ambitious yet. Some of the highlights include much bigger images, print ordering with greatly reduced prices, enhanced navigation and tagging and much more.

Here is a fairly complete list of new features:

  • Nice BIG images.
  • Gesture and keyboard navigation. When you're viewing images or blog posts, try using your arrow keys to navigate through the images. Fun stuff. On iPads/iPhones/other iOS based devices swiping left and right accomplishes the same function.
  • Full HTML5 implementation using HTML5 Boilerplate.
  • Enhanced tag cloud and tag viewing.
  • Better archive system, showing photos, blog posts and tweets.
  • Prints of every photo in my entire archive are available for purchase. Click on the BUY PRINT / LICENSE button. Now with much lower prices!
  • Shorter URLs for tweeting/linking goodness:
  • Improved cacheing for faster browsing.
  • Aggregated home page displaying blog posts, tweets, links, photos and videos.
  • Replaced missing flickr image embeds in my blog with local versions of said images.
  • 1024px wide interface for iPad glory.
  • Removed all advertising from entire site. Please buy prints to help offset my hosting cost!

There is more to come, I still have a bunch of features I will be adding in my free time over the next few weeks. In addition to those features I have tons of photos to post and dozens of blog posts that I've been meaning to write.

Let me know if you have any issues with the site in the comments below or by emailing me directly.
