Tweet I have finally attempted to integrate my smugmug photo site into this one. Theoretically I should be able to make the header of my Smugmug pages appear exactly as it does here.

Tweet I love the idea of websites that host pictures. I have photos scattered a few different services on the Web. I started with a service called PBase.com. I liked Pbase (my account has expired, but the pictures are still there) because of it’s classy interface and because it categorizes the equipment used to take [...]
