THANK YOU to everyone subscribing via feeds, email and coming from all over the web to view these great photos from friends on flickr and more!

What started out as a blog to say thank you to flickr photographers who placed their photos in creative commons for use by online writers like me has become something bigger.

This blog is also a home for genealogy photos I've restored over the years. After years of searching, it's pretty cool when you finally run into someone who has a photo of your great-great grandparents that your family line used to own but somehow changed hands over the generations. What's beautiful is how much a computer can restore old photos to near pristine to look like the photo shoot was just yesterday!
