None of the Above

Links

In my collection of photos, there are some worth seeing again and sharing, but they don't fit into any of my existing photo albums. Every once in a while, on my morning walk, I take my camera, and one day I collected several photos that seemed to fit this description. This inspired me to create this new photo album, which also includes some picture that go back a number of years. Of course, new photos are added from time to time.
