Description of Pictures: Using Setting to Increase Mood and Suspense

Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
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 email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2023 photos: Equipment this year: My old staples the Fuji XS-1 and Nikon D7000. In April, I bought a Google Pixel 7 Pro since DigitalReview.Com said it was the top camera smartphone and it wasn't an iPhone (so it's not evil). In June, I took the plunge and bought a mirrorless Nikon Z-5 camera.
The only trip so far this year:
(May) a visit to see Dad and Dixie in Asheville, NC and visit with some friends in Brevard.
