I’ve reached a plateau. After a year of taking a picture each day, I believe my photography has reached another level of competency. To celebrate, I wanted a new look for my blog–something clean and crisp that would show off my images. So here it is.

Of course nothing is perfect! Wouldn’t it be nice if it were? The one and only thing I don’t like about this template is that you have to scroll down to the bottom to get to the archived posts. And, as my photography level has grown, my technical capabilities have not. What does CSS mean anyway! I mean, it isn’t going to change. So, I hope you don’t mind scrolling down. Let me know what you think.

Now on to Discovery Park in Sacramento. Lately we’ve been concentrating on short, local outings. It’s amazing what photographic opportunities Sacramento City and County have to offer. This park is at the confluence of the American and Sacramento rivers, is 302 acres, and is the beginning of a 32-mile bike trail that runs along the river. We were there about 3:30 and the park was still hosting runners, bicyclists and boating enthusiasts.

I had never walked on the I-Street Bridge that links West Sacramento (which is in Yolo County) to Sacramento. There we found homeless returning to their camp and workers returning to their homes on either side of the river.

It was a beautiful evening and set the stage for a New Year and this new look.

  1. CSS is Cascading Style Sheets, but they work very differently in WordPress than anywhere else, I can’t work out how to do for here, but I have done my own CSS for other websites I’ve been involved in. Go figure.

    I like the new site, it looks good.

  2. Anne, to add to Leanne’s comment, CSS is what makes the page look like it does. For example, I use CSS on my daneaffaire page to do things like set the borders on the cells in a table and the way the copy sits within the cells, make my headers and footers, etc. I could do it all in html, but every page would have to contain the html to do it. With CSS, I create a CSS file and “link” it to the page(s) and it handles the formatting for me. That way, I can change one file and reformat the entire website. I’ve got probably 100 pages on that site – so much as changing the copyright every year would be a nightmare without CSS.

    New page looks great! Happy New Year!

  3. Thanks for the explanation Laura and for the positive feed back. You do know you’ve opened your door to helping me! The only thing I would like to change is to make it easier for people to find the “like’ button!
