Description of Subject Matter: The Hessian Barracks building is part of the Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick. Originally built around 1777 to accommodate two battalions of soldiers, these barracks soon became a repository for mercenaries fighting for England. The site is listed with the National and State Registry of Historic Sites and it has been used as a Revolutionary War prison, staging point for Lewis and Clarke expedition, State Armory in 1812, Civil War general hospital, and First Maryland School for the Deaf.

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
