Believe it or not, we're not done yet :-) The pictures thumbnailed above are the ones I thought were the best. If you want a more complete collection, please click on the links below to check them out. [If you are interested in the large-sized (though unfortunately not hi-res) versions of these pictures, or if you want a complete set of all the smaller-sized ones that are on this website, please email me and I'll send them to you as a zip file. You should be aware that some cropping, color-correcting, brightening, and sharpening work has been done on the smaller versions -- the bigger ones are exactly as they came to me, and so may look rather different than the versions on this website.]
