Aquatica Launched

Alpengraphik‘s mission is to disseminate ideas and information about the role of photography (and its companion “graphies”) in the modern world.

This is a complex and involved task, and we are moving to address this most interesting and important mission through a narrowing of our activities by looking at a smaller number of topics.

To this end, we offer up the first of several new Web tools: Aquatica. It comprises graphic presentations across the range of topics relating to living on the water planet.

Here is where to find it:  http://aquatica.alpengraphik.com

 

The New Web Site

We’re diving into the worlds of WordPress, Flickr, and cloud computing to rebuild the world of alpenGRAPHIK. All its constituent elements actually fit together quite well in practice, but things got awfully jumbled in the area of management and presentation of content. The beauty of the Web and the core concepts of hyperlinked data is that they mimic the ecosystem of data and information in the “real” world, but, happily, can also serve as tools to grab back control of everything when shortages of time and resources work their mischief on daily operations.

Last weekend’s challenge of three major photo shoots (National Championship Race Walk 5k, Freihofer’s Run for Women, and Saratoga Springs Tour de Cure bike extravaganza) and the resulting task of dealing with thousands of images provided a needed requirement to act …. and this new home for the alpenGRAPHIK “family” is hopefully the needed response.

Here we go.
