White as Milk

follow me on twitterWhite as MilkWhite as Milk is a clean wordpress theme that puts focus on the content rather than the design. Its easy to use and customize and the design stays out of your way. I started using this theme for a photoblog, but then realized that there wasn’t a good clean theme around for others to use, so here it is, download and enjoy!
