What's New?

Last Updated: October 24, 2009


NOTE: If you wish to donate photographs, please see Submissions Guidelines. HvH -- January, 2007

Noting that I haven't been updating as often as I'd like ... life's been busy which is a big part of it. I have in the stack to be processed: I will get to these as time permits, really. I am not ignoring anything that's been sent me, but time is a factor ... please keep your eye out to see if I've updated anything, and if I have, feel free to send those corrections. And many thanks to those who have donated photos over the years -- without you, this site would be rather dull. ~ Hirsch
