A New Look and a Little Chaos

My photography website host Smugmug released a major upgrade earlier this month. It involved a complete re-write of the underlying foundation, which means those of us with heavily customized sites have to completely re-do our sites because the code and customizations of our old sites will no longer work on the new platform. Ugh! I've known for two years that the release would be coming so I procrastinated on making any major changes because I didn't want to spend all that time customizing only to have it go to waste.

I decided to do a complete revamp of my site and I must say that customizing is SO much easier when you don't need to learn javascript hacks and other workarounds (once I understood the new interface). I finally unveiled my new look tonight although I still have some tweaking to do. I've been working on cleaning up 8 years of a mess, re-organizing and re-categorizing images and I'm ashamed to admit how much of my new work had never been uploaded to my own website. Plenty of work ahead of me still!! Please bear with me and if you run into any problems please do let me know.

The navigation bar you see here on my blog is not the right one. Please visit my main photography site and use the navigation bar on that site.

Right now my blog obviously doesn't match my photography website. I need a few days to figure out the customization code. I'll be out shooting at an event tomorrow so I hope to everything integrated this weekend.

I hope you like the new look!
