Refresh and Renewal isn’t a “version 2.0” but a new focus on what the CATALOGUE is supposed to be.

2019 sets off a new direction with a refresh providing opportunity to renew the passion on the hobby and collecting, then putting it all together through creative photography.

Reviews would still be present, definitely, but they’ll be more of featured articles.

Photographs.

I’m hoping to further expand my visual story telling through more photos across the site. Whether it’s an old section like The CATALOGUE, the relaunched One Shots galleries, or even quick blog posts. That also includes the new photo-oriented and responsive site layout.
