Visiting small churches in isolated villages and various neighborhoods, or colonias, in the larger towns and cities was a big part of our summer trips to Mexico. There were always lots of curious children… The people we met were always incredibly kind and eager to share whatever they had with us — even when they had very little, compared to what […]
The more I look through my dad’s slide collection, the more I wish he had kept notes! I know that he shared these slides often, and he had his reasons for arranging them in their present order (which is definitely not chronological), but his presentation notes were all in his head, so now I can only guess.

In this challenge you can show off your train photos as well. Have fun with […]

And so I decided to post 2-3 images each week, at the very least. Also, one of my awesome readers, Galen911, has asked about the scanner […]
