Elegant Themes

WordPress provides the content management system for this blog, but the stylistic theme (presentation formatting and structure) is based on one of the many beautiful wordpress themes available from Elegant Themes.

This site provides a huge menu of professional grade training covering all of the basic skills and technologies necessary to build a website or blog, and much more. It is available on a monthly subscription basis, at very modest cost. As a university lecturer, I recommend it to all my students, and I refer to it often for up to date information on new platforms and programs.

All of the photography on the SeasonalMuse is shot using a Fuji X100s digital camera. I love this camera for its retro design, beautiful image quality, and optical viewfinder which means you get to look through the lens (if you want to) instead of staring at a screen when shooting.  You can read an in-depth overview of all its features by visiting photographer Ken Rockwell’s site.

Eye-Fi provides a wireless connectivity card based on both the SD and micro-SD format that a large number of digital cameras use for image storage. The card provides for both local storage and the ability to connect directly to a local iPad, iPhone and other display devices wirelessly. This link will connect you directly to the version of the card that I use:  Eye-Fi Mobi Pro 16GB WiFi SDHC Card
