Changing to Latitudes

Published October 15, 2006

Beginning next Sunday, you'll find travel stories in a colorful new weekly section called Latitudes.

Besides travel coverage, Latitudes will include news stories, features and consumer information on the fine arts, performing arts and books. The new section is part of a redesign updating the look and freshening the content of the St. Petersburg Times.

A regular Latitudes feature called Globespotting will provide a glimpse at the places where Times readers are traveling. Several weeks ago, we requested travel photos for consideration for this feature. You sent them by the hundreds and we were impressed by the varied destinations. Every continent is represented.

We received far more photos than we can publish so we have started a Web gallery. To view the gallery or submit digital photos for possible publication go to www.travel.tampabay.com. Click on "Globespotting."

We are excited about Latitudes and hope you make it a Sunday destination.
