Harvard, Massachusetts History: The “Brown Building”

Not alot of dramatic things happened in Harvard when I was growing up. It was a small town so we got used to small things having relatively big importance. So when they decided to raze the grade school I attended for three years, I got out my camera and shot an *entire roll* (12 exposures) […]

What is a “snowshadow”

Traveling through Bryce Canyon National Park in December, we witnessed a neat combination of temperature, snow and sunshine.
