The Wandering Photographers
The Wandering Photographers is a photo blog started by myself, Emily Shearing, and Ted Rysz. As we found ourselves on different coasts after college, we decided to document our our wanderings.
Adventurers. Explorers. Travelers. Wanderers. With every adventure we take, our cameras are there to document it.
The Wandering Photographers is a collaborative photography project. The code is open source, meaning anyone can fork, add their own images, and merge them back in.

Building your own copy
It's pretty easy to build a copy of my site. I used jekyll which is a ruby program that compiles markdown files into static HTML documents which makes it super easy to put on the web.
Clone this repo, cd into the folder,
bundle install the ruby requirements, and
$ git clone https://github.com/Cbeck527/the-wandering-photographers.git $ cd the-wandering-photographers $ bundle install $ jekyll build
You'll have a new folder in the directory called
_site that has all of the
compiled HTML files ready to be thrown at a web server. Pretty nifty!
