I'll not get into everything that hasn't gone according to plans lately when it comes to my photographic life, but rather share some good news.
First of all - I did some design changes to the site. It now looks like every other photographers page (minus bold-colored pictures), but there's a reason this layout is among the most used. I wanted captions, but I didn't like Squarespace's lightbox and the way it renders picture captions (it cuts the lower part of the photo). I wanted single pictures to be linkable. There're downsides too - project intro has to be presented as picture, there's no place for any other text you might want to add. And I don't exactly like the thumbnails view that gives more space to portrait-format photos. But all in all, I consider it worthwhile update.
Secondly - my work got some positive feedback on Andrew Molitor's blog. Not a huge impact or publicity, but I'm happy that what I wanted to achieve with Blood Unquiet is not completely lost. There've not been too many people who get to the bottom of it and like it. I always prefer the first - being understood and disliked for a reason is better than superficially dismissed (because you know, focus wasn't where it should've been on one of the pics).
I also added some new pictures to Blood Unquiet from last two years. And most of them have captions now - something I resisted doing before. The reason - I want to be understood after all and captions add some pieces to the puzzle. So lets see how it works.
(And if you ask about the picture above - I shot it in my backyard when I got home really late one night; I really enjoy living outside of town).
