Call for photographs

I'm currently building the new DLOC website and it's very visual with lots of photographs. At the moment these are mainly ones I have taken and I'm no photographer.

Re: Old Forum

Chris, sorry I meant on that topic you referred me to - there’s 18 pages of posts. So quite a debate.

Re: Old Forum

That’s interesting Chris.
Do you happen to recall how they were proposing to do it?
Maybe you still have the proposal from them?
