In virtually all the various places which I visited during the past year, I brought my Nikon digital camera with me to record all the sights in exquisite, colorful detail. It's hard to imagine how I ever got along without it. In February, I took a group of students on a field trip to Richmond, which was a big success that I hope to duplicate this coming semester. At the end of July I visited Washington D.C. (and also Baltimore), on the first leg of my long-distance journey through the Midwest (broadly defined to include Ohio and Kentucky), en route to Colorado, where I saw many wild birds, including nine (9) "life birds" (i.e., the first time for me). Finally, the snow we had last month provided a great opportunity to take some pictures of the scenery and architectural treasures right here in Staunton. The photo montage below summarizes the above travels in highly condensed form.
And so, I have updated the main Photo Gallery page. I also added a "new" Autumn 2009 photo gallery, but the photos on it are actually a few months old.
