This is it.
After more than a decade of designing websites for others, I finally have my own. My very first website was created in the 90s using a notepad and an imaging-software-i-forgot-its-name. I have never heard of any HTML editing tool or Photoshop back then. That site which contained nonsense stuff (such as midis!), was hosted in Geocities. Too bad I wasn’t able to backup those files, it looked very amateurish anyway. I enjoyed toying with the site so much that I decided to pursue a designing career instead of software engineering (Yes, I have a computer science degree).
But computer programming found its way somehow into my profession when website development was paid more than the web design. Throughout those times, I came up with quite a few personal websites, but was fixated more on my design portfolio. I didn’t have my own domain and was completely satisfied to have them run in some free webhosting services. And those free webhosting companies died, and along with them my websites. At some point, the desire of having my own space also died.
Several years later, I am still in the IT industry (sigh). But got hooked on digital photography after I renounced my purist view against digital cameras. I have accepted the fact that film and digital are two different arts. They lie on separate planes and to a great extent, incomparable. Then I thought of revitalizing my desire of making my own website to exhibit not my design folio, but my photography. Thanks to web 2.0, having your own website is easier, more fun and interactive than ever before.
So this is it. Enjoy the photos and hope to do business with you soon. :-)
