My work here is done

Well it looks like Buzznet's interface has finally gone 'full retard'. And I'm moving to another pic site, so I'm removing most of my pics…

About Me:

Totally boring Ohio suburbanite who's only here for the pics.

In VirtualTourist mode, I am somewhere near N 40 12, W 83 13.

I do not have a MySpace profile.

Why do I use statuary as my profile pic? Because it speaks of people and places gone by, or in artistic works (like my first profile pic) an expression of... something. People who have done... something. I've had a Native American chief, a Roman noble, a WWI soldier, and others as my avatar. My own visage is much less photogenic... better to leave the stage to more dramatic figures like those guys.


Taking pics.

Favorite Music:

XM Channels 53, 74, 84, 127, etc.
