Happy New Year my dear followers!
I’m still alive and still taking pictures, but the space-time continuum must have had a tear because all of a sudden it’s 2015 already. In other words: I’ve been and will be busy but I’ll try to at least occasionally post new photos. Thanks to all of you who have not given up on me and are still following.
