Welcome to my new home on the internet, my first self-hosted blogging exploit. I’m not quite sure what purpose this new corner of cyberspace is ultimately going to serve. Right now there is nothing much to see; it’s nothing more than a presence, my presence on the internet. It’ll grow. Into what I’ve no idea, but it’ll grow.

The dMb Gallery
I been busy of late getting my dMb Gallery finished – I always wanted a self-hosted online collection of my favourite images so the Gallery was created to satisfy that craving. I’ve already populated it with images (some good, some not so good) stretching back as far as 2002 & it will grow over time as I populate it with my very favourite images, just like I did yesterday with the above picture captured a few days ago on the nighttime streets of the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea, where I’m presently based full-time.

The dMb Photography Blog
Of course this dMb Photography Blog is a em, blog so every now and then I’ll probably submit here some random gibberish and/or some accompanying eye candy, if only for my own pleasure. From the outset I envisioned this being a blog centered on pictures (Update November 22nd, 2012: While in hindsight that may seem pretty obvious but at the outset this wasn’t a dedicated photography blog & thus I didn’t call it such, it was just the dMb Blog). It houses a lone image as of right now, its unveiling, but again it’ll grow, just like the Gallery. And again just like the Gallery I’ve tried to make the blog as simple to use as possible with the emphasis firmly on the pictures. It took a while to get to this stage (boy did it ever) & whether it looks like it or not it took quite a bit of work, too (I’m new to this). It has been eventful, immensely frustrating at times, and painstakingly slow always. But it has also been educational and, most importantly, fun. Here’s hoping it continues to be going forward. Enjoy. And stick around. Hopefully you’ll see, or read, something you like.
