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.
2012 photos: Equipment this year: My mainstays were the Fuji S100fs, Nikon D7000, and the new Fuji X-S1. I also used an underwater Fuji XP50 and a Nikon D600. The first three cameras all broke this year and had to be repaired.
Trips this year: three Civil War Trust conferences (Shepherdstown, West Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Williamsburg, Virginia), a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean, my annual two-week trip out west for the San Diego Comic-Con (plus side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc), and a week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana)..
Ego strokes: I had a picture of Miss DC, Ashley Boalch, published in the Washington Post. I had a photograph of the George Segal San Francisco Holocaust memorial used as the cover of Quebec Francais (issue 165). Not being able to read French, I'm not entirely sure what the article is about but, hey! And I guess what could be considered to be a positive thing, my site is now established enough that spammers have noticed it and I had to block 17,000 file description postings for Viagra and whatever else..
Number of photos taken this year: just below 410,000.
