Apparently, the rainy clouds of gloom hang out for the better part of winter here. In an act of desperation to post something, here is a photo taken at Manzanita Beach back in September.

It seems every time I get a chance to go out and shoot something it is either raining or everything is engulfed in a dense fog which hangs around for days. In some ways this has been a good thing. I have been able to keep myself tied to this chair while working on other projects. It is good to get stuff done; however, my shutter finger has been itching. I expect to awaken from this rainy dream at any moment with a camera in my hand and a great source of light which plugs in the wall.

I'm back and it only took a month and a few days to get here. I've been literally tied to this chair re-working this site and a couple of other web projects.

In the event that someone actually finds this site I have added a contact form linked on the About me page and on the bottom-right corner of the footer. The form enables visitors to email me questions, comments, secrets, or their favorite recipes.

This website should now render and scale on mobile devices. This functionality is something I've not bothered with in the past. But the miniature screen revolution can no longer be ignored. Of course, I have not tested this website on every mobile device in existence; however, it looks great on my Palm Pilot and Pocket PC--just kidding. Also, I have redesigned the gallery because mobile devices exist.

I will pick up the camera soon... Since the move from North Carolina to Oregon I have managed to unpack my lighting equipment and test it. Thankfully, everything survived the ten day road trip. Extra clothing makes for pretty good packing materials.

I'm itching to go out shooting but the rainy clouds of gloom don't want to go away. Therefore, I shall return to hammering at this keyboard for a little while longer.

Over the past week I've been burning up free time re-doing this site. I still have much to do but it is functional. And functional is good!
