As some of you know, I enjoy taking pictures – and then finding something to say. Here are 12 from the past year that I hope will provoke some thoughts.

      Thank you, Karen. It was quite a year! I think you and Todd should do an annual photo album.

    Wow great photography ! I am always so amaze that we see same things is such a different ways .Capturing the beauty that someone else has not even noticed is interesting ,but then our eye opens and then we see the unseen! Yet still different but more reveling. The power of focus of our eye and our mind is unlimited yet biase by our life experiences. We are so different yet so similar in the end .

    How nice to have a “slow” time at work so I can enjoy something as beautiful and inspiring as this. Thanks for sharing, Fred.

      Thank you, Michael. One of those was taken over your shoulder going down the escalator to the subway in Boston. Sorry I had to edit you out!

    Dear Mr. Smith, your photos exude a truth I learn over and over…. beauty, really is in the eye of the beholder. I believe you have what Solomon describes as “a bountiful eye”
