Website, doors, photos & Tate

This week I have re-designed my website, again. I actually got the idea from a flickr-friends twitter background. I saw her new background and immideately got me in the mood to change my design again. I took a look at my web and come to the conclution that it was boring and not as cool as I wanted.

It’s less than four months since I redesigned it.  Lets hope this design will stay up for a bit longer!

It didn’t take me long to figure out how I wanted it. Quite quickly I had a vision of how I wanted it. I wanted it to be clean, hip and cool. There is only so much I can make with the limited html skills I got, so I’m pretty satisfied with the way it turned out.

Of course it wasn’t a painless operation. Not only once did I almost pull my hair out. When I found out that the design looked differently in FF (firefox) and IE, I almost resigned. I was so close to quite and forget the whole thing. But I didn’t, because I wanted to badly to get this to work.

In the end I’m not 100% satisfied, but that’s not my fault. It’s IE/FF fault and I can’t do anything about it.

The door project is going on. I’ve had two days now where I’ve been a bit blah about the whole thing. Yesterday I had to drag myself out to find a door. Today my mood was better, but I didn’t find  the door. It’s an ok church-door, but not it! I guess when you’re gonna find 365 doors, not everyone can be it! But in my head every door must be top notch! I have to lower my expectation/ ambition maybe? Ugh, that doesn’t sound good. Not at all. No! NO! I can’t think like that. I have to work on getting the it-door every day, but I must remember to not be disappointed if I don’t find that door every day.

I put up all my doors on the website. That was quite a job. But it’s good to have them up. Now it will be much easier to add new photos. I think it’s a good idea to add new photos to my web once a week.

Now that I’m so focused on doors, I don’t shoot other things that much. I miss that. These the last week has been all about doors. I know this project is important, but I don’t want it to take over me completely. I want to focus on other pictures as well. I have to find a way to balance it all.

Today I bought some food to photograph again… It was only cheep things like an red apple, an onion and carrots. I did have carrots in the fridge, but they were not as photogenic as the ones I saw in the supermarket. haha. I have to eat lots of carrots to get rid of all these! I better go get one now.

I visited flickr a short while ago and I found this supercool link about Tate Liverpool who collaborates with Flickr and wants us to share colour monocrome pictures (pictures with one color). If they get accepted into the flickr color chart group, it will be displayed on Tate’s website (as you can see in the link).  In the end they are going to select 36 pictures and make a poster out of them. I have found two pictures that I’ve submitted.

white eggs

blue wall

You can upload max five pictures. These two are the only who I have found so far that fits the theme color monocrome. I like the white eggs the most. Hmm. when I come to think of it, I have one more that might fit into the description. Not sure… I’ll think about it and maybe upload this one:

290309-1

Maybe not 95% of one color as they requier…

250509-1Maybe this one?

I’ll think about it. No use to debate withmyself in this blogpost. haha.
