Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

"It is proposed to found in the city of Washington, an institution which...shall in the broadest and most liberal manner encourage investigation, research, and discovery [and] show the application of knowledge to the improvement of mankind..." —Andrew Carnegie, January 28, 1902

2017 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
(April) a 48-hour jaunt for a Civil War Trust conference in Pensacola, FL,
(June) an 11-day trip around the Civil War Trust annual conference in Chattanooga, TN including sites in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee,
(July) the annual San Diego Comic Con trip with a sidetrip to sites in Arizona,
(August) a family reunion in The Dells, Wisconsin including sites in Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin, and
(October) the Civil War Trust Grand Review in Fredericksburg, VA.
For some reason, several of my photos have been published in physical books this year which is pretty cool. Ones that I know about:
"Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture" (David Lemmo),
"The Great Crusade: A Guide to World War I American Expeditionary Forces Battlefields and Sites" (Stephen T. Powers and Kevin Dennehy),
"The American Spirit" (David McCullough),
"Civil War Battlefields: Walking the Trails of History" (David T. Gilbert),
"The Year I Was Peter the Great: 1956 — Khrushchev, Stalin's Ghost, and a Young American in Russia" (Marvin Kalb), and
"The Judge: 26 Machiavellian Lessons" (Ron Collins and David Skover).
