Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
JHU100_220509_01.JPG: This was the JHU COVID counter at 5:58pm, the start of the National Cathedral's bell tolling for one million deaths. Well, except there are two pages being shown. JHU shows US figures on their main page at https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/ and also on their US region page on https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/region/united-states . Logically, the two pages should be identical but they seldom are.
Global Confirmed: 517,649,231
Global Deaths: 6,252,707
US Confirmed: 81,939,486
US Deaths from COVID-19: 997,664
JHU100_220509_03.JPG: These were the numbers on the JHU site(s) when the bell tolling ended 100 minutes later -- the Bourbon bells were being rung ten times per minute, once for every thousand US deaths from COVID).
Global Confirmed: 517,662,744
Global Deaths: 6,252,738
US Confirmed: 81,951,735
US Deaths from COVID-19: 997,704
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2022 photos: Another year begins. Here's hoping we've finally learned something from the Trump and COVID-19 pandemics. I continue to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras for most things but the camera, which came out a decade ago, is no longer repairable so when the last of my four XS-1s break, I'll have to figure out a comparable camera to use instead.
Trips this year:
(February) a visit to see Dad and Dixie in Asheville, NC with some other members of my family, and
(July) a trip out west for the return of San Diego Comic-Con.
