Places Web Design and Photography
This site will be revamped - please stand by!
Please allow me to entertain you with an excuse as to why our very own web site is STILL awaiting a remodel...
Storytellers have on occasion told a parable about an old cobbler wherein they ask the question: "Why does the old cobbler have no shoes of his own?!?!!". The expression refers to the fact that an old cobbler was so busy working on stuff for his own customers that he never got around to pounding out the leather needed for making footwear for himself.
So what does that have to do with a site devoted to doing websites and photography for others?
This old parable applies to our situation at MemorablePlaces Web Design and Photography wherein we have been so busy making websites for our customers, and doing photography for the local newspaper and other clients that we have just not had the time to re-do our own website.
So, why would we as webmasters neglect our own website? The answer is the same that of the old cobbler's... There are only so many hours in a week and our children and customers must come before our own needs - including putting together a new site for ourselves.
In the meantime, please visit the websites of some of our clients and the other websites we have created over the years.
Here are just a few examples from the present to 'ancient':
