(In-process note: slowly restoring earlier posts, for © pics check)

Only around 60 of ~150 posts originally published here are visible at this time, because as you may have heard certain large copyright holders were not just informing blogs that they had (perhaps unwittingly) copyrighted images on their blogs and demanding their removal, but presenting said bloggers with hefty bills and the lawyers to back them up.  Ouch!

So I real quick-like unpublished every post with a picture I hadn't taken or verified, and am slowly restoring them… at the leisurely pace that befits the project.  When you've put up over 150 posts, and is hardly what you'd call a urgent task, it's going to take some time.

I do want to point out that every single graphic I published, and every quote, was attributed and linked back to the source. But apparently they're demanding payment regardless; so in all such cases we've been forced to denude a number of early posts, unfortunately, reducing them visually to just thoughtfully-formatted clusters of words.

This Year's Spring View

The view across the street here in Catskill, NY, of the middle of the eastern range of the Catskill Mountains, three miles west.
