Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp - Best of 2020

Pretty quiet year for me on the aviation front. Managed a night shoot in March, but most of my av togging took place in September for the Aviano and USMC deployments. First up the two seat Aviano bird, caught arriving back just after sunset. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50594274981_9c8c4b6c98...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Let's not pretend marijuana is harm free, particularly the current strains being grown. Sure, it's less harmful than alcohol, but it can cause depression, paranoia and mania, particularly in teenagers/adolescents.
