Ruth and Hannah – thanks for your work on the website.  I’m very pleased to see that we’re using it to share our ideas.  If anyone has any suggestions for continued improvement please let us know, or just go ahead and make the changes.

I’m wondering what everyone thinks about having a separate page for photographs.  On the one hand, it makes sense to have all our pictures together in one place.  On the other hand it might create an artificial distinction between visual documents and textual documents.  In my two experiences of traveling out to Scots Bluff, I found that a lot of my research questions and ideas were stimulated by what I was seeing.  Why was it Scotts Bluff, for example, which became famous, rather than other fairly similar features nearby?  Perhaps the best approach would be to post pictures to the photographs page in general.  But it would also be good to see photographs posted to the main home page when they are integrated with what we’re thinking about in the blog posts.  What do other people think?
