In this section, you will find regrouped articles that are included in a series. All of these posts can be found on this blog, however this is a way to access them in an easier structured indexed fashion.

All of the posts feature photos. I will feature each day a featured photographer, when I am not posting my own photographic work. You can peruse past posts to discover more about them. Click on the images to see the photographers web sites. Credits are given at the bottom of each post.
Please contact me before republishing any parts of these articles.
