A Year In Photos, 2016: Inanimates

Many photos I took last year didn’t make it to the blog for various reasons; so, to complete the picture (pun intended), here are a good many to fill the gap a little.

Unfortunately, none of these were taken with the newer camera (higher resolution, better color accuracy), and many of them are the opposite of extraordinary. …Maybe, you’ll want to get something to eat or drink…

The answer is yes, if you’ve wondered if I’d captured more of the USM Portland building… a.k.a., the Albert Brenner Glickman Family Library.
