Predictions were made that the Internet would spark an online Renaissance.
Instead, we got spam bots, Trojan horse viruses, a plethora of porn, and annoying
popup ads. Referring to the Internet as The Information Highway to Hell is
my dry, wry characterization of cyberspace.

"Go to heaven for the climate, hell for the company" - Mark Twain
 
"If you're going through hell, keep going" - Winston Churchill
 
"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise." - Adolf Hitler

What's on this site? Travel photography, but not just a cavalcade of famous shots. I try to capture the entire experience including getting to the famous shot. In the Louvre and Munich art museums I provide the background for each painting that struck my fancy along with my observations (e.g. great art reviewed by the ignorant). I also document the flora and fauna for one calendar year along a small rural road in 2006, the last year of glory before the process of urbanization began to destroy it. Are there bald eagles on your walks? All the pictures enlarge to full screen (in a new window) when you click on them. To close the enlarged pictures, click on the "x" found on the upper right corner of the new window. Your browser security might complain about "active content that could access you computer" - it's just complaining about the code that enlarges the pictures. The poetry section is a tribute to Dr. Robert Morgan, no longer with us, who reads over ninety minutes of poetry and some bible verse. I hunt pheasants and have been known to fly fish for trout, and have the pictures to prove it. The rest is just the flotsam, jetsam, lagan, and derelict that is my life so far.
