Please do not ask me to send you all the photos in my collection. I would be happy to send you five or six photos. Send me the file names and location for the photos you want and I'll do my best to reply quickly. Thank you for visiting.

These photographs on this page have been reduced in size to about 6 6/7 inch x 6 inch. Links to the photographs have been added. If you click on the photo a larger image will open up on a new screen. If you use Google Chrome Hover you will be able to point your mouse at the photo and see a larger size photo without the photo opening on a new page. Also try Thumbnail Plus for Foxfire. I haven't ever used the Foxfire add-on so I'm not sure how it works.
