Add another to the blogroll

I follow somewhere around 130 different blogs. Yes, it is a bit excessive I agree, but I just can't help myself. Most are photography related. Others have to do with digital preservation and curation. Then there ones that are simply fun, like Bent Objects. A friend posted a link to this one Facebook and I was hooked. Below is a You Tube video promoting a book being released in a few weeks. I think I may have to add this to my library too.

Admittedly the initial image of the cat had me intrigued enough to press play.

Oh Binx...

I have spent the majority of this past weekend with my butt firmly planted in front of my home computer. I've been taking care of a long list of tasks that are way over do such as sorting photos, cleaning up files on the computer, learning how to build a website, catching up on blogging etc. etc.

Tonight resembled many of the last week. I was fighting html code. Bianka was is in the backyard. After a little while I heard a familiar whine at the door. As Bianka, whom I often call my little black dash, breezed past me like usual I noticed that she wasn't jingling. See, on her collar are her licence and rabies tag. They usually jingle when she walks, which is helpful if you are trying to locate a small, black dog in a dark yard at night.

Anyway, I didn't think much of it. I made my way back to my desk and continued my to work on my site and check Facebook. (You know the important things.) Just then Bianka ran into the room and tagged me with her front paws, as if to say, "Hello. I want your attention right now." As I pushed her down I noticed some dark spots on my area rug. Then I turned back to the dog who had decided to it was time to play "Chase me" and took off running through the house. I finally caught up to her in the kitchen.

Oh, Binx. What have you done now?

Well, this explains the spots on the rug.

And this is why you were so quiet.

Oh Binx.......

Why? Why do you do this to me?

It's bath time tonight for you Little Dog.

I know you hate it.

Clearly, this is some form of torture.

But, look how cute you are when you are all nice and clean.

Okay, you got me.
I'll admit you can be pretty cute like this too.

My first Client Website part 2

Yay! I did it.
As promised I've embedded the my first client website here.

I did this session Sunday morning. Thank you to my dear friend Ashleigh for orchestrating it. It was quite an undertaking to get five individual couples living in three different cities together for a photo shoot. The session comprised of Ashleigh's family as well as her husband, George's. You might recognize one couple, Patrick and Liz, as one of my brides and grooms from earlier this summer. They were seasoned pros at this photo thing, but honestly, they all were amazingly cooperative and everyone had a lot of fun. Thanks for being so awesome guys.

(You'll also notice that I snuck one image into my new header. I just had to do it.)
I put the disclaimer in that these images were SOTC (Straight Out of The Camera,) but I wanted to put together something quickly for them to view. See, Patrick is getting ready to go overseas with the army next week. A perfect time to try out my new Showit Sites. This way they can enjoy their photos. In the mean time I can go in and put on the polish.

My first client website

So I made my very first client website. It is very basic, but at the same time I think it turned out well. I'll probably embed it in the blog but for now you can view it by clicking the link below.

PS. Check out my photography blog. It has a flashy new header.
