A very special thank you goes out to this month's sole contributor of the photographs, Dr John of Dr John's Fortress. Here's a copy of the email he sent to me last month:
For a future time if you need a quick group here are mine. All the pictures are from my personal archive and are over 35 years old. They certainly can be used. Just in case you're busy.
The age of these photos, which are scans from actual film, (remember those days before digital?) give them a much different look than the ones I typically pull off of Flickr. I figured they'd be fun to use and also wondered how their style might influence the stories this month. There is one photo of flowers that I almost subbed out because we had one of roses last month, but John was gracious enough to send a whole set to use and I wanted to honor that, so I kept it in. Thanks again John, it's appreciated.
If anyone else would ever like to have one or more of your photographs used, please feel free to email them to me and I'll do my best to include them.
The fifteenth falls on a Thursday next month and with Christmas and New Years coming up, I've opted to set the posting date later rather than sooner. Therefore, January's stories will be due to be posted between Mon 19th - Wed 21st. Happy writing!
