Welcome to my new PhotoBlog!

As you can see, my new photoblog is up and running!

The blog now matches/blends in with the new web design.  My goals are the same –  to share my thoughts on landscape and nature photography in general, as well as sharing information specific to my own photography.  I will continue to include links to the work by other photographers I find inspiring, plus products and resources that I find useful.

Please update your bookmarks, RSS feeds, etc.

New Photoblog address: http://www.williamneill.com/blog/

The photo included was made in my backyard pond.  When I noticed the pattern that the pads form, I visualized a B&W photo.  This was unusual for me, but since John and I developed the Meditations in Monochrome ebook, I am “seeing” in B&W more often.  I also made dozens of color frames on Saturday and Sunday.  Sunday was especially good since it rained here!

I look forward to your comments and feedback.

Be sure to “follow” me on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter too!

  1. Dave,

    Bill’s assistant, John, here. Glad you got the RSS feed to work, but I wanted to mention to others that I changed a preference for syndication that should’ve fixed the problem with the “AddToAny” widget. I’ve just tested it with Google Reader, and it seems to be working fine, but if any one else out there is using Google Reader, or any other reader, and seems to be having problems, please let us know.

    Thanks,
    John

  2. David – it seems you are right. I just resubscribed using the RSS URL provided at the bottom of the page rather than via the widget at the top of the page and I now see the images correctly. Looks like the “AddToAny” widget may have a problem adding to Google Reader.

  3. I really like how you are incorporating your blog in with your web site. The new site looks awesome, and I will look forward to continuing to be subscribed to the blog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, expertise and time… it is very much appreciated!
