Photography Site

I have been looking at online photo sharing communities for years. I just discovered 500px. It really has great options for sharing and meeting other photographers. You can sell and license your photos with them. They have the option to watermark your work as well. It seems to be a really useful and friendly community for sharing your photography. It was Created in 2009 from Toronto. It’s a global online photography community for sharing and licensing photos. Images on 500px are the work of professional and beginning photographers. Through its marketplace, 500px works with thousands of agencys and brands that use 500px images in their campaigns.

The Poets and the Peddlers

I switched to WordPress’s Twenty Fifteen theme. Everything is up and ready. Enjoy the new site.

  • Added social media links; I rarely use on any of these, however.
  • Moved the navigation bar over to the left; if you’re on mobile or have a small screen, you can find these in a drop-down menu at the top-right of the viewport.
  • New theme has responsive web design. This means the site will rearrange itself for optimal accessibility depending on the size and orientation of your screen.

If you run into any issues or have any suggestions, let me know. (I can’t customize the site’s HTML unless I pay WordPress half my paycheck, unfortunately, but I can always add or remove pages, fix links, and other little things like that.)
