Hello Cole,

 

I've been quiet lately. I've only sent out one newsletter in the last several months, very few blog posts and almost no social media.

 

Where have I been? Well, mostly travelling...and thinking.

 

What have I been thinking about? Social Media for one thing.

 

What have I learned? That there is life after social media and in some ways a better life. It's easy to get caught up on all of that popularity stuff.

 

Is there a place for social media in my life? I think so, but I'm still trying to figure out what it is. There has to be a better option besides "all in" or "all out."

In this newsletter I'm introducing the complete portfolio of new images from the Faroe Islands. The project is named:

 

Nature is Rude and

Incomprehensible at First

I'd like to wish all of my friends a Merry Christmas. I know this is a politically incorrect thing to do, but at my age...I don't care.

 

In the world of Cole, a person's intent should be the measure of offense, not how the words are received.

 

I sincerely hope the true meaning of Christmas will cause us all to be a little kinder, a little more considerate and a little more tolerant.

 

Cole

Here are the final images from my Faroe Island adventure and the resulting portfolio:

 

Nature is Rude and

Incomprehensible at First

 

I started out with some 1600 images and have whittled it down to 45.

New Website!

I am pretty excited about my new website. It has a similar look to the old one but now it's mobile friendly, cleaner and easier to use.

 

My friend Steve Ellis has been responsible for this project and it's been a very smooth process, much simpler than I expected.

 

Steve has had some very large clients, but he's also had small clients like me. And very importantly, Steve has a photography background and so he understands how a website must work for a photographer.

 

If you need a new or redesigned website, talk with Steve at Ellis Ideas.

Newsletter/Blog Signup

In the past I've had a website and a blog, with two signup lists. Now with the new website, I have a single signup for both.

 

This means that if you've signed up for my website, you will now also receive my blog posts...and visa-versa.

 

The website and blog do have different content. The blog is more about words and ideas whilst the website is about images.

The Lone Man

While in the Faroe's I was able to add a new image to "The Lone Man" series. What makes this image extra special, is that this "lone man" is my daughter-in-law Erica!

 

My son Cody, his wife Erica and their daughter Margot were visiting me in Torshavn. We were able to see many sites and photograph together.

 

While I was photographing the enormous cliffs at Trćlanípan, they were on top looking down. And at one point as Erica stood there alone, I created this image.

The "Road to Nowhere" series is one that is taking a very long time to complete. Here are two new additions from the Faroe Islands.
