2009: the year in photos
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.
CLOCKWISE, FROM TOP LEFT: Virginia Senate, Goldfinch, Clark's nutcracker, Hunt Hall at Mary Baldwin College, Red Rock Lake and some kind of moth (or butterfly?) in Colorado, and in the center, Emmanuel Episcopal Church with the new copper roof. (Camera icons above denote dynamic rollover effects; roll the mouse over that image to restore the 2009 montage.)
Happy "Binary" New Year!

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.
The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
