Bare Trees December 2010

Please be so kind as to remember that I started this blog in August 2010. So these figures only cover a five month period. I think that skewed the numbers down, as far a usage goes. For instance, they figure I uploaded 3 pics a week. Wrong! Almost 7 days per week. I rarely missed a day, except for the hiatus for Thanksgiving. Oh, well, I find numbers so very interesting and I know some of you like them too.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
