A New Look

The photos posted here are from our road trip yesterday out Ísafjarðardjúp. We spent most of the morning today working on getting everything transferred over to the new domain, and organizing the new look. Whenever you go to the old blog you will be redirected immediately here. The URL is easy to remember: http://focuswestfjords.com. That takes you to the title screen from which you can enter the rest of the site.  We are still working on navigation and developing site content, as well as maintaining the blog which we will both be working on from here on out. Right now there is content under the people link to the left, a profile of Sigurjón Samúelsson, the farmer/record collector whom I wrote about yesterday on the blog, and an additional album of photographs from our visit yesterday. By tomorrow there should be more content about the project, the car farm, and our visit today to Netagerð, the fishing net factory in Ísafjörður.

Gústi and I are getting into a working stride, with each of us working to our strengths. When we visit a site or subject, he generally goes with a wide lens and I with a long lens, giving us different perspectives; when our subjects speak only Icelandic, he shoots and talks and I attend to getting notes; when they speak English, we both talk and shoot and take notes. Then we pull it all together. It is good.

Hi Matt:
Your new blog site is nice. The pictures are fantastic, and the journal is interesting.
Does your daily diet consist mostly of fish, and do you have access to fresh vegetables?
Looking forward to following your updates, and seeing you this summer for a "live update."

annar fyrir fˇlki­ og hinn fyrir bÝlana.
