Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
UNTC_031009_01_STITCH.JPG: Trusteeship Council. This group is designed to try to get rid of colonies. These days, only four countries have colonies--the United States, France, Britain, and Belgium--so the work of the council is a little vague.

Description of Subject Matter: Trusteeship Council Chamber
Finn Juhl was just thirty-eight years old when he was commissioned to design the Council Chamber, which stands today as one of his major works. The chamber was designed to form a comprehensive whole. This means that Finn Juhl designed everything in it, from the colorful ceiling light-fittings and the curtains to the wall paneling, carpeting, lamps and chairs.
In the delegates' portion the walls are lined with ash wood designed to act as acoustic baffles. The multicolored striped carpet was made in Denmark as were the curtains, railings doors and latticed ceiling which repeats the fine woods and the light, clear colors used. A large wooden statue carved from the trunk of a teakwood tree also was donated by the Danish Government. Selected as part of a competition, the sculpture created by Henry Starcke shows a young woman dressed in a patterned robe with arms upraised towards a large blue bird with outstretched wings. It was carved especially for the Trusteeship Council Chamber.

2003 photos: Equipment this year: I decided my Epson digital camera wasn't quite enough for what I wanted. Since I already had Compact Flash chips for it, I had to find another camera which used CF chips. That brought me to buy the Fujifilm S602 Zoom in March 2003. A great digital camera, I used it exclusively for an entire year.
Trips this year: Three-week trip this year out west, mostly in Utah.
Number of photos taken this year: 68,000.
