IT IS UP !!!!

It is up! As promised to Christi and the rest of the world I have finally put up a new website, with a new look, new images, a contact section and flash slide shows. All the bells and whistles expect the annoying music that so many people force you to enjoy (if I could hack computers, that would be my objective to correct the crappy music on people’s websites) the only Glitch! With the new site is that my domain registration service is down, at least I am unable to contact them… So I (no actually Justin, my geek friend and co-worker) created a redirect to the site. So until I get back from Tibet, you all will just have to live with whatever abritary address it says in the “url” and take solace in the promise that by mid September is will say www.photo444.com so go check it out comment, complain and if you are one of my friends in Japan, China, Nepal or Africa please put the new site through its paces and let me know how it functions on the slower speeds etc.

So when I was selecting some of the images today, I kept noticing over and over again that because I  use only  short lenes to photograph with, most of my portraits are also my self portraits. I used this Amdo girl as an example. Notice I appear in both her eyes.

The white on her face is her makeup and sunscreen, they make it from Talcom & Yak butter, Since Tibetans traditional bathe only 3 times in lives, Birth – Marriage – Death, their makeup has a tendency to stick around although I think this little Amdo  girl might be due for a reapplication…
