New Look! / by Mike Daclan

Wasn't too happy with the old layout so I decided to change it up (slightly).  While it's not a complete overhaul, I do feel that this is an easier to navigate layout.  Although I did like the full bleed on the last version, it did feel cluttered when bringing up the thumbnails for the gallery.  When in doubt, K.I.S.S.

To go along with the new change in the site I'm also thinking of new projects to work on.  I'm always on the hunt for commercial work (I need to pay the bills somehow!) but these would be projects I could work on over a period of several months. It all began after seeing Eric Kim's post regarding mediocrity and photography.  On a related note, I just discovered /r/picturechallenge which could help out in this regards.  I'm open to all ideas though so feel free to chime in if there are any you're working on or would like to see.

In the meantime, we just passed through a week of cold weather and rain here in Los Angeles.  Although I personally am a bit saddened (I love the rain), here are some beach photos which show a typical Los Angeles winter scene.
