. . . So I think its time I do a bit of catching up. Firstly, the slider gallery here are images for the upcoming Gurushots competition entitled “Fun with Shadows”. This should be a very interesting competition and I am looking forward to seeing what the other photographers around the world come up with this time around.
Secondly, I would like to thank all the new Followers on Twitter who have joined in on the journey. It’s been great so far sharing thoughts and ideas on using social media to expand a business, and also to connect with and see the many fine photos from other photographers around the world. It is quite a humbling experience and leaves me challenged to continually try to improve.
If you are new to this site, and the Invictus WordPress Theme, a couple of things. When a visitor first lands on the homepage, it is set to display only a random 50 of the photos contained in the image gallery. To see a different 50 random photos, simply click on the SJPhoto logo on the top left or hit Ctrl-R (Cmd-R on the Mac) and this will force a screen refresh with the next lot of photos. Secondly while browsing, if you wish to move through the images quicker, simply use the Left and Right Arrow keys. The Up and Down Arrow keys will raise and lower the thumbnail scroller. A patch is available by the developer of this theme, which will now enable the Space-Bar to be used to pause and un-pause the main Gallery (Ahem, now just to find the time to take care of that next . . . )
In these blog posts, where there are images in the Nivo Scroller, to have a closer look at them while listening to the video, simply click on the mini-scroller images and the photos will expand for viewing and sharing on Twitter and Facebook.
Lastly, as with most blog posts in the past I try to end by sharing a song which I find meaningful or which is just one which is on my mind at the moment. In editing the photos for this post, and in the past few days I have been listening a lot to Mumford & Sons. Great music! This one however, I like a lot because of the nature of the video imagery and also the lyrics. I hope you will always believe in your dreams and goals. Enjoy!
