Hard to believe this picture is from over three years ago. I was on my way down to our second gallery show at the Oakbook Gallery—it ran from May to June 2010—and I saw this overturned car and a bunch of police cars at Broadway & 23rd in Oakland. It was 11 a.m. on a bright Sunday morning in Oaktown. As everybody knows, I love street photography!
Anyway, that’s not the purpose of this post.
This is a heads up that I will be suspending publication of P1xels—The Art of the iPhone for about two weeks, probably starting Saturday, Sept. 24: this could change, but it’s the day we have chosen for now.
We are redoing the front end of the site at long last, as per our Indiegogo campaign from last year. We will have a very different interface and user experience, and a number of features we have long wanted to implement. Much has been done in the back end that is invisible. We are probably going to move the site again, which is no small feat: it is over three hundred gigabytes now. When we moved it last time, it was around six hundred gigabytes, but we’ve been clearing it out.
I am not sure if I will keep posting pictures somewhere else. I have a tumblr page, and also the Facebook P1xels page. But, with the move, and the redesign, as well as the launch of iPhotographer Magazine today, I have plenty to keep me busy.
I continue to share information here as plans evolve, schedules develop, and thoughts crystallize.
I have to say that the thought of not doing P1xels—the first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, with much squeezed in during the course of every single day, as it has been since November 29, 2009—fills me with a bit of trepidation, but I am curious what it will be like. And what it will be like after we launch again.
Almost four years in now, P1xels is still an improvisation every single day! Thanks for keeping up with the chord changes.
And we will just keep on truckin’ …
Keep On Truckin’ by Abakus (I was going to post a Hot Tuna version of the old blues song, but the hippies didn’t allow embedding, so I stumbled on this looking for an alternative. I actually like it!)
UPDATE: I am going to discuss closing the site down this Sunday with my developer. That way we could probably be up and running by the first of September, which, coincidentally will be our first afternoon salon at the San Francisco Apple Store at 4 p.m. It will go to 5:30 p.m.
