Hello Chris, My web-site is: www.berridge-photography.com It is very
new, so I do not have many images on it yet. Also, some friends of mine
set it up for me, and I don't know how to maintain it by myself yet. So I
cannot update it yet. My e-mail address is also very new. Thanks for
writing. Bernie
