Problems Accessing Pictures

As some of you have noted, the links to our pictures no longer work. It appears Google (where the pictures are stored) has implemented new security procedures that block our access. We are working on fixing this, but in the meantime, our apologies for the inconvenience.

UPDATE: Albums marked with a “*” now work, using a different program. Let us know what you think of the different software.
