Description of Pictures: Calvin Trillin
Calvin Trillin is a journalist, humorist, food writer, poet, memoirist and novelist. He is best known for his humorous work on food and eating, but he also writes serious journalism, comic verse and fiction books. After a stint in the U.S. Army, Trillin worked as a reporter for Time magazine before joining the staff of The New Yorker. His books include “Jackson, 1964: And Other Dispatches from Fifty Years of Reporting on Race in America,” “Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff” and “Alice, Let's Eat: Further Adventures of a Happy Eater.” Trillin was inducted into the New York Writers Hall of Fame and received a Thurber Prize for American Humor. His latest book, "No Fair! No Fair! And Other Jolly Poems of Childhood" (Orchard), is inspired by Trillin’s real-life experiences and celebrates the humor of familiar everyday topics. He lives in New York.

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.
2016 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Seven relatively short trips this year:
two Civil War Trust conference (Gettysburg, PA and West Point, NY, with a side-trip to New York City),
my 11th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
two additional trips to New York City, and
a Civil Rights site trip to Alabama during the November elections. Being in places where people died to preserve the rights of minority voters made the Trumputin election even more depressing.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 610,000.
