Photos - Page 1:

For more than 50 years, I've taken photographs from various locales. Here are some of my favorites. The first 20 are in alphabetical order and were selected based on geographic diversity. Numbers 21 through 25 are an unalphabetized mix that didn't quite make it into the top 20, and 26-30 are from Oklahoma and Missouri. Numbers 31-40 are in Chicago, while 41-60 are in New York City and Washington, D.C./Arlington, Virginia. Numbers 61-80 are Dallas and Moscow. Page 5 (81-95) meanders through New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. Page 6 is devoted to Washington and Oregon, Page 7 San Francisco, and Page 8 Mexico. Page 9 is devoted to baseball.
