Just a quick note that I have enabled a cool service I just discovered on WordPress that enables sharing buttons at the bottom of a post, so you can quickly share something you like on my blog if you choose to. You can share on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and on many other social networking sites. Oh, and if you’d like to get updates to this blog in your email, make sure to subscribe in the upper right hand corner of the blog. Just enter your email address, and you won’t miss any of the updates. So share away minions!
Last week, I decided to move my blog BACK to WordPress from Blogger. On Blogger, I never really appeared as high in search results as I did on WordPress. Plus, I think the WordPress blog is a cleaner look and feel for the reader. So anyway, I’ve been working on the new setup which includes adding links to a lot of my friends and families blogs or websites. I’ve been trying to find dead photo links and correcting or removing them. I’ve also given my blog a name. I sat here for quite a while trying to think of an appropriate name, but nothing seemed to fit all the types of photography and art that I enjoy. Then suddenly a J. Geils band song popped into my head, and so now I have a name for my blog. What do you think? Is it lame? Cool? Just blah? Help me out with your opinion. Thanks!
Suburban Chicago, IL – 31 Dec 2009 – Midwest area photographer Richard Nagle of Night Owl Photography announces the first Night Owl Photography public art exhibit at the Kindred Spirits Intuative Arts Center, and in conjunction with the Fox River Academy of Music & Art’s public art exhibit.
Mr. Nagle travels the midwest photographing the nature and wildlife we have right in our own back yards. All of the photography featured in the exhibit has been captured within a few hours of the Chicagoland area. Mr. Nagle endeavors to capture the decisive moments in nature, that ensnare the heart and soul of those who view his work.
Kathy Stinson says “Rich is a fantastic photographer. I bought some of his eagle photos for my father’s birthday and he just loved them. He has a such great eye for detail. You will not be disappointed.”
Mr. Nagle’s photography varies in subject matter from American Bald Eagles on the hunt, to majestic fire sunsets, to dramatically gleamed plants and flora, to backyard birds and wildlife. His photographic eye was gifted to him through his parents and grandparents. Everyone in his family has the gift of art in some way. He learned photography on a completely manual 35mm SLR, and grew up in the darkroom with his father and 2 godfathers. They harnessed his gift, developed it, and then released him into the world, armed with a camera. It wasn’t until his mid 30’s, when he discovered the digital SLR that he rediscovered his gift and created Night Owl Photography.
The Night Owl Photography Art Exhibit will be held from 12PM – 6PM on Sunday January 17th, 2010 at Kindred Spirits Intuative Arts Center / 4025A Route 34, Oswego, IL 60543.
