I am an avid photographer and digital photography has allowed me to "bring along" lots of family and friends on my travels as well as through my daily life. I keep some of my better photographs on the web. There image are free for use and in the public domain so if you see any you particularly like you are welcome to save them to your own computer. I normally send these images as "virtual postcards" to various people. I am in the process of rearranging the images but feel free to view my photo gallery.
