You may find my little website kind of primitive...

First, while having some experience as a (ahem) content provider, words 'n pix, I do not claim any residual talent for graphics-web design - you may have already noted this! Building this site years ago, on a Mac laptop with $10 WYSIWYG software, was a learning experience - and time consuming, not least because all photo images were shot on film... Since putting this up, I've discovered the true meaning of WYSIWYG: that some rare technologies - PCs, for instance, and cell phones - don't recognize certain fonts or graphics (possibly like my lovely walking egg, above...), that careful alignments of text boxes have jumbled, and riveting captions sometimes lop off mid-sentence... alas. Otherwise, the links seemingly still do - hope you enjoy my little photo-reportages! I'll rebuild someday, with better software, when I know what I'm doing! DS 6/2017
