So, here I am driving to work on a very cold morning just going about my routine.  I am listening to the radio, driving the same route that I could drive in my sleep without even thinking twice about what I am doing.  Then, I pull up to a red light and am really just looking straight forward at the light waiting for it to turn green so that I will get to work on time when something lands on my windshield right in front of my field of vision…a snowflake.  Now, normally I would start to look around and see a bunch of flakes falling and smile because I like snow, but instead this particular snowflake kept my attention.  It landed right in front of me and was completely intact.  It looked like somebody drew a perfect snowflake, shrunk it down to size and stuck it on my windshield, it was amazing.  Now, I have seen quite a few flakes in my life, but there are usually so many, or as is the case in Georgia, they melt as soon as they come in contact with anything.  But this one didn’t melt…it stayed just the way it was long enough for me to stop going through the regular routine and slow down and focus on the extreme detail of God’s creation.  Pretty cool for a really cold Wednesday morning.
Well, the light turned green and I couldn’t exactly pull out my camera while driving and away goes the snowflake.  For the record I still made it to work on time, but I went back outside while a few flakes were still coming down…in the very very cold weather, and was able to capture a few flakes that landed on my truck.  Enjoy!

New Website!

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

The time has finally come for a website redesign.  I made the previous version of my site in 2005 and let’s just say it was a little old.  In the time that it was up and running I changed the look and feel of the portfolio and added a few pictures…and that’s about it.  The new site is far from complete, but it was time to say goodbye to the old design.

A few of the new and improved changes:
The site is now wider.  Gone are the days of having to fit a website on an 800×600 screen.  So, if you have a widescreen monitor now, it will fill up more space and hopefully look better.
The portfolio now has categories and is a lot more organized.  All the images that were in the old portfolio haven’t made it over to the new style yet, but they will.  This will make it easier to see what is new without having to scroll past all the stuff you may have already seen.
The blog.  Well, this is probably going to be the most writing you will see on the blog.  I take a lot of pictures randomly and they just sit on my hard drive and usually nobody but me ever sees them.  So, I’ve decided I would upload a few and share them with the 5 people that may visit this site.
Other than that, the only things that will be changing will be the pictures as I take more.  If you do happen to be on here, please leave a comment and say hello.  Who knows, maybe there are 6 of you out there after all?
