This a collection of personal pictures in
galleries assorted by time. I'm sometimes (quite) slow about updating
this bit, but here's a gallery of pictures of my family (for other
family members and the curious alike). There's lots and lots of
pictures up now. Rather than post them all to one page, they're split
up topically. This should help people find the ones they're interested
in (and keep page sizes down). I have changed all the JPGs to
"progressive" JPGs, so you shouldn't have to wait as much to see something,
even if you're on a dialup connection.
If these galleries don't work for you, you may need to temporarily
disable your popup filterer.
