New Website = Time To Get My Blog On

The process of moving my blog from blogger to word press made me realize that I did not do my job in keeping up with things.  Now I’m moving to a 100% blog based website for www.bephotography.net – and after I transferred, categorized and prepared all of the previous posts, I realized the last time I posted anything in my “Politics” category was over a year ago!

So with the launch of the new website that will force me to do a better job in keeping things on my site up to date (and also allows for a much easier interface to be able to do just that), I thought I would post a few images from what I didn’t keep everyone up to date about over the last year!

Stop and smell the roses

Among others, my wife is known to give me hard time for not taking photos of “pretty things” — She is right.  I often get caught up in the people and events that I am shooting, and providing images for clients, that I often neglect to just “stop and smell the roses”.  I’m trying to make it a point to slow down with life in general –  take a look around me and start taking some “pretty pictures” — here is attempt number one.
