    Hello everyone. I uploaded many of the decent photos I ended up with. Roughly 200 out of the 600 I took. These are medium sized. The large versions (for anyone who would like to have one) are posted on my Flickr photo page and free for the taking, printing and sticking on your wall if you choose to. Just go to Flickr. The name is dreadeddennis. Go to a set, click a picture which will open up in a new page, right click the picture and choose the size. The larger the size, the better for printing. Thanks for good time this year. So many photogenic people, so little time. Someone remind me to bring a hat next year. That sun is a killer.
