Well...okay...he's not REALLY alive.
I saw this statue of Elvis last week in front of a memorabilia shop in Old City and couldn't resist taking this photograph. And not only because of the statue, but also because of the gentleman who is kneeing behind Elvis's legs, repairing something.
Now I have to confess that I was never a huge Elvis fan, but I did like some of his music.
Such as this song.
And the choreography in this clip ROCKS because it's so '50's and natural. They don't look like classically trained dancers, they just look like they're having fun. And boy, can they MOVE!
This week I’ve been busy investigating how to add a photo gallery to my blog, where I could feature selected photographs in a portfolio slideshow; embedding it on a separate page.
As many of you already know, I enjoy learning how to customize my blog by finding tricks and tips on the Web, then trying them myself. And it's so ironic because if anyone had asked me years ago if I was interested in website design, I would have said, "Noooo way...that's way too technical for me!"
However, after being online for so many years and blogging, I eventually decided to face my apprehension and learn how to do it by using a practice blog, and then transferring it over to this blog.
I honestly find the behind the scenes of how a website works, so interesting.
I can't by any means design a complete website, but I do have a basic understanding of web design code, so I can tweak and add things to my blog, such as this new photo gallery slider.
After MUCH research and MANY mistakes, I finally figured out how to do it here.
I had to do a bit of adjusting in the CSS coding to customize it to my liking, and I also had to figure out how to remove the sidebar on a separate page so that the gallery would fit because of its long width.
Thursday at about 2:30 AM, after adding all the photos by hand, I finally completed this project by shouting, “Halleluiah...I did it!”
So if you wish, please visit my Photo Gallery page below my blog header, where you will see the final product.
I will be adding and subtracting photographs each month, so feel free to check it out occasionally.
Thanks everyone and have a ROCKIN' weekend!
