EarthPhotos.com Facelift

ep

As you may know, we’ve got a little collection going, comprised of our travel photos – about 20,000 of them – on the web site EarthPhotos.com. If you haven’t browsed over there lately, please drop by and see the changes we’ve made to freshen it up a little bit. And if you find anything out of place, please let me know.

Thanks to Jerry at JR Customization for the help!

Time to Lighten Up a Little

It’s important to talk about wars and rumors of wars, but CS&W was originally about travel, travel writing and photography. So today, back to that.
