Description of Pictures: David McCullough: David McCullough is the award-winning biographer, historian, lecturer and narrator of some of television’s most distinguished historical series. His books have been praised for their exceptional narrative sweep, their scholarship and insight into American life, and for their literary distinction. His John Adams (Simon & Schuster, 2001) was on The New York Times best-seller list for more than a year. His most recent book, 1776 (Simon & Schuster, 2005) is following the same pattern. He is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, the National Book Award and the Francis Parkman Prize, and has been honored with the National Book Foundation Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Award and the National Humanities Medal. He lives in Massachusetts.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2005 photos: Equipment this year: I used four cameras -- two Fujifilm S7000 cameras (which were plagued by dust inside the lens), a new Fujifilm S5200 (nice but not great and I hated the proprietary xD memory chips), and a Canon PowerShot S1 IS (returned because it felt flimsy to me). I gave my Epson camera to my catsitter. Both of the S7000s were in for repairs over Christmas.
Trips this year: Florida (for Lotusphere), a driving trip down south (seeing sites in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia), Williamsburg, and Chicago.
Number of photos taken this year: 147,000.
