grandmother by Atala

It’s always a treat to take some time out from life and go play in nature. Every once in awhile I’ll join a photo outing with photographer colleagues to some interesting site in America.

Figure in Basilica - by Kristol

I’ve received a number of emails lately from folks whose experiences are out of my range of knowledge but are, to them, very real.
