new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

... or gifts bearing pirates...

i was hoping to find something as cool as this in my kinder, but i kept getting these pirates... they're not very fierce, are they?

in other news, two teenagers are going to raise money for cancer research by riding to different parts of the U.S. on their bicycles... consider donating here.

EDIT: name change - from vikings to gauls!

    AFAIK, that's the pirate captain from the 'Asterix and Obelix' series of comics by Goscinny and Uderzo, so maybe not a Gaul at all?

  3. oh drat!

    this is getting complicated :D

  4. I think Ole Phat Stu is right, it’s Barbe Rouge, the pirate captain, from Asterix.
