SXC Newsletter: The First Issue

I just go the first issue of the SXC Newsletter. Real nice. First, they introduced thesaint, a web designer from South Africa. I have downloaded some of his photos and they are really good.

Here is what they said about him: thesaint (a.k.a Matthew Bowden) is a web designer from Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa who loves snapping pictures of just about anything with his Canon EOS 20D. His images on sxc.hu receive more downloads and comments than just about any other members’. Best of all, his images have no restictions, so help yourself!
