This site has been my baby since October 31, 2003. I've written all of the text on every page, striving for accuracy. Please use the big Contact link to the left if you find anything that's either inaccurate or could use further clarification. Almost all of the photos are mine, and as I grow toward 100,000 photos and beyond, it just amazes me that this started out with a few hundred photos in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, most of poor quality and not even road-related. In fact, back in 2001, I started putting material online without even an HTML framework, not sure why I wanted to bother sharing my photos with anyone, with cryptic text explanation files written in chronological order. (That made it very difficult to figure out where the photos were when I went to a location-based navigation system when I learned HTML.) So, to conclude this introduction, I would like to assert my creative rights over all text written on this site and over all photos that I have taken. For photos contributed by others and for support over the years, all I can say is
