Ned Martin’s Dot Org Welcome to my website I keep a journal, which details in great detail every little detail of my daily life. It’s not always exciting, but does give a good indication of what my life is like, and presumably in turn what I am like. It’s my collection of daily life, interspersed with my attempts at photography, wit, and whatever else comes to mind. The journal index is probably where you’d want to start. Or check out the most recent entry, start at the oldest entry, browse by year, use the calendar, search, or if you are still lost, the site map… More… Newest Journal EntryWest End Fire FestivalI photograph West End Fire Festival.Sat 4th Mar 2023West End Fire FestivalBronwen, Chloe & I watch West End Fire Festival.Sat 1st Jul 2023Stonewall Rally & MarchI photograph the Stonewall Rally & March.Sat 1st Jul 2023Sunwayfoto’s Faulty Quick Detach (QD) Strap & PlatesI receive more QD swivels & complain about Sunwayfoto’s faulty ones.Thu 15th Dec 2022Arca-Swiss & Quick Detach (QD)Bronwen & I drive to Enoggera Reservoir & I buy camera tripod plates.Sun 13th Nov 2022 A brief history of this page It was a basic welcome page back in v2. v3 started with a newspaper themed welcome page, before adding a tiled background, and finally, expanding on the tiled background, before changing to its current style.

A few little bits of it have been saved. nedmartin.org v2 v2 was a very fixed site. Every page, every section, was exactly the same—stylistically speaking—as every other page. It’s still there—go have a look. It was heavily focused on standards compliance, accessibility, and all that jazz. It seemed the “right” way to design a perfectionist’s site back then. Now I’ve moved on. Order in chaos is my current goal.
