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.
Happy "Binary" New Year!
