Greetings, all. I am announcing that this site will be on hiatus for around a month. I am finding that the time I have to devote to image preparation is more constrained lately and rather than feeling stressed about it I'm just taking some time off to build up my store of postable photos.
I will be back sometime in February. Happy 2015!
