Wabi Sabi and Tulips

 

 

 

After months of preparations, I am proud to announce the NEW GAIL BERREMAN PHOTOGRAPHY WEBSITE. Same name and internet address only with a whole new look.

My new website features includes

  • A New Home Page with a brand new slide show
  • New Portfolios
  • New Images
  • An updated Profile and Welcome Page
  • New Features on my Blog Page
  • A Shopping Cart

Now, lets talk about the Blog page. If you’re reading this, you are on the Blog Page. There is a new feature on the right hand column called Subscribe. If you would like to continue to receive notification of new blog postings, you will need to “subscribe.” It is easy and straightforward. In the box on the right side of the page enter your email address. When you hit the “SUBMIT” button, you will be sent an email with a link to click on.  This proves you’re a real person with a real email address and not a robot.  Then whenever I post a new blog, you will be notified by email.   Please Note: your email address will NEVER be shared PERIOD. No one will see or have access to the your information. There is also an “unsubscribe” feature that is easy to use. All you have to do is click on it.

I hope you will subscribe. Why don’t you do it now so you don’t forget? I will send out two reminders so folks who haven’t t subscribe will get another chance.   After that you’re on your own.

On the Portfolio Pages you will see a small shopping cart icon on the bottom left hand side of the page. Click on the icon and a price list will open up for the image currently displayed.   The prices shown include sales tax and shipping is free. Therefore, the price you see is the total price you pay.

Currently, the website only accept payment by PayPal. You may “Contact Me” for other payment options and any questions you have.   I am working on adding more payment options online.

I hope you will take a peak at my new website and let me know how you like it. Be sure to subscribe to my blog as I have an exciting rest of the year ahead of me.   Plans are either in the works or already complete for visits in 2015 to:

  • Redwoods National and State Parks
  • The California and Oregon Coasts
  • Point Reyes National Seashore including an Update of my “Death of an Icon” Blog
  • Grand Canyon during monsoon season (think thunder and lightening)
  • The Big Island of Hawaii
  • The Grand Teton National Park
  • Route 66
  • Sedona, Arizona
  • Arches and Canyon Land National Parks
  • Bryce Canon and Zion National Parks

Hope you will allow me to share my upcoming adventures with you. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog.

Please let me hear from you and your thoughts on my new website. You like it? Hate it? Love it? Or it really makes you no never mind.   I value your opinion.   To leave a comment, click on the Blog’s title in the list of blogs on the right. The Comment Box will be at the end of the blog.

I’m excited and pleased to have the new website up and running. Please note that this is a “work in process” and there will certainly be some missteps along the way. I will do my best to make the transition easy for you.

The image above is entitled “Wabi Sabi Tulips” and was taken three weeks after I brought them home from our local Safeway.   Normally, I would have discarded them when they started to wilt and lose their petals. This time I watched them day after day as they continued to shrivel and wither away.   Each day I saw unique beauty develop as their petals twisted into grotesque shapes and developed interesting texture. To me Wabi Sabi means “The Art and Beauty of Decay.” Ask 100 different people what their definition of Wabi Sabi is and you’ll probably get 100 different answers.   Could this be a topic for a future blog?

Remember to get out and enjoy the outdoors whether it is visiting a national park, local sites, or walking around your own neighborhood. Always look for and

SEE THE EXTRAORDINARY IN THE ORDINARY!
