Hello all and welcome to my most excellent web page! My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings will fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through a device called "MIDI", and I have a link page or two of my favorites for you to cruise. Also, in commenting on an issue or interest of mine, I'll write some essays filled with links for you to read.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below this section to find out what I've added this week. I'll also be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
Here is this week's nanofic.
The Bum Report
I'm titling these web pages "The Bum Report" until I have some more worthwhile achievement to mention. I seem to have come down a bit from my earlier inspired painting &c of this year. This lack of steam is the one thing which is causing me to consider bringing this sabattical to an end. I'd rather not waste the time. Well, we'll see...
But anyhow, I do in fact have something new for this week, something I've been working on for a few months in fact. Below is a picture of a photo essay I've put together entitled "9909"
It's a chronicle of one year of the changing seasons at my beloved homestead, the Gilder-Murray House. I began keeping this log by accident. After repainting the board showing our house number last year, I took a picture of it surrounded by the lush foliage which dominates around here every year. In the fall, when that foliage exploded into the equally impressive color riot, the sign made a good focal point for several photos, including one already posted to f1.7, my photo archive. In one of our two lonely snowfalls of this year, I began actively working towards the final product with the winter shot, and I took several dozen shots in the spring, hoping to get the last picture which would tie it all together. All of this was made possible, of course, by Andy's generous gift of his old digital camera. Signed and numbered prints of "9909" will be available..
