Dark Anniversary

Today is the dark anniversary for me. My father died 2 years ago today of a massive coronary.  Somehow it just seems ironic that he would die of heart failure.

My father was a great man. I understand that, according to his peers, he was quite a fantastic  lawyer as well as an extremely intelligent person. Of course we all knew he was book smart. He wasn’t so much of a family man, though. At least not to his blood kin.

I put together a bunch of photos that I had shot two years ago, durring the reception following the memorial in his honor, at the West Hartford Country Club in Connecticut. I apologize for taking so long to post these, but maybe today was a more appropriate day to do so, anyway.

I put them on facebook and I made them accessible to anyone.

Unlike usual, I used no Photoshop, so sometimes the light is a bit dark as I haven’t corrected it.  This is kind of unusual for me, as I am a graphic designer.  I just felt an urgency to get these online today.

If there are any particular shots that you would like me to clean-up, by all means ask me.  I also didn’t throw away any of the blurry headshots when other people were in the frame because I don’t get to take photos of this side of the family very often.

You can right-click any photo and save it to your local PC if you want a copy, I am sure.

Be sure to share this link with anyone whom you might think is interested.  Every photo there is for sharing with family and friends.

Thanks…
Love & Peace

twidrops: twitter backdrops & website backgrounds

I am happy to announce that I have finally gotten twidrops online.

Although only a small collection of twitter backdrops and themes are live, I think that anyone who checks it out should be happy with the quality of what is available there.  I started with some photographs that I took at the 2009 Sioux Falls Air Show on July 25th. So there are at least 3 shots of the Blue Angels on the site as I write this.

The twidrops site also offers a default theme allowing you to upload your chosen twidrop and simply plug-in the suggested color codes to produce a handsome looking twitter profile right away.

I also have about 20 repeating psychedelic pattern tiles available on the website, so far.

I am still working on the twitter backdrop design tutorial, but it is quite far along and is online now in the blog.

More will come, I am scanning my image files for some other backdrops and background tiles right now.  Now that I have a little online I want to add some other files to add some variety and diversity.

Be sure to stop by twidrops (twitter backdrops & website/blog backgrounds) to check it out!

twitter is a social blogging platform where you share bits of information 140 characters at a time.  If you would like to follow me on twitter, I am Domainating (of course).

Thanks for reading!
