After almost 6 years, I finally got around to updating this website. I am not done yet and still testing so bare with me. I had started this web site 2004 when there were no good ways of sharing large amounts of photos. Over the years I have been totally winging how to manage this site with the dinosaur program Front Page. There are many ways I have presented the photos galleries over the years. The latest Lightroom generated galleries seem to work well. My ultimate goal is to redo the entire site to one cohesive site. One day...
Until then, enjoy, Mark

Note: Some may experience a problem with the some of the older automated slide shows. There should be a link in the top left corner above the index pictures that says "Click here for a Slideshow." If this is not visible, your browser is blocking it. (You might have heard a beep and see a yellow shield). You must right click on the warning plan (look for the yellow shield) below the tool bars and allow blocked content. The automated slide show pictures are bigger and make viewing easer.
Note: that some browsers will not allow flash content. Some of the newer galleries are in flash. If a white page appears instructing you to get Adobe Flash. First look for line above it with a yellow shield warning you "to protect your security.....," try and left click and allow blocked content. This is harmless!

The goal of this site is not to sell pictures, nor is it to show off my best photos. Rather this website is a pet project of mine put together to share my photographs with my family, friends, and anyone else who happens along this site while surfing the net. I started this website in 2004 before there was Facebook, Flicker, Instagram to share pictures..... This web site is a dinosaur at this point, and may be out dated., but one day I will figure it out and redo it all.
Sometimes I will post pictures that I am not happy with just because the subject is of interest to me and other people. For those with a critical eye, sorry take the good with the bad.
All pictures are optimized for web viewing. This unfortunately compromises their resolution thus quality.
