Please note that I had anticipated spending a day or two buffing up the content, in particular reestablishing expired links to material. That will happen soon. In other instances, such as the Keith Burgess post a little further below, the thumbnails no longer work for reasons not apparent to me, but you can click on the boxes to see the images in their original location. Alas, that won't be true of all posts, until I track down the photographers and find out where there images are. Incidentally, all images are used here with permission.
New material coming out soon, as I am finishing a half-year intensive work project and am renewing my interest in this blog. If you have any comments, please include them in the comment section, and feel free to email me: jrm underscore rr, my id for yahoo email, with comments or suggested topics, and especially images or web pages worthy of my consideration. I especially seek out images which fall in an "artsy" category; those seem to be hard to find.
As this is a rush intro - I will polish it down the road, or not, maybe I'll put my energies solely into my next post - I show you merely an image of no particular quality, one of my own, just to add some color and life to this particular post. I much prefer to write about images created by others. I critique better than I shoot, at least I hope you come to that conclusion.
