First post in Gutenberg

Well, it’s finally here – WordPress 5.0 and blocks in Gutenberg.  While my professional use of WordPress is still a bit off from using Gutenberg, it’s interesting to give it a shot on this largely-readerless site of mine.

So here’s a pretty picture from a few days ago in an image block to get things started.

My annual picture of Chicago

While working in Tribune Tower I made it a goal to take one great picture of Chicago every year from our company holiday party on the 25th floor ‘Crown’ terrace.

Now, this party is generally in December and on a VERY cold night, so people look at me like I’m crazy when I show up with a big Nikon DSLR and head out on the terrace, but this year I am particularly pleased with the finished product.

Details:  Nikon D7100 with Nikon 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR – 5 image (handheld!) bracketed HDR processed in Lightroom with the camera dangling over a 25 story ledge (but securely attached to me).

Leaving Tribune Tower

Here are a few photos as we move the office out of Tribune Tower and prepare to move to our new space across the river in early 2018.

Loving the Carneros Inn near Napa

Every year work takes me to an amazing place to work with the great team at WordPress VIP; the Carneros Inn near Napa.  While a significant amount of work is involved it’s wonderful to be able to spend time early in the morning and late at night in the vineyards of Carneros.
