This account will no longer be updated with new photos. Please see my new account at ~PatrickTCPope (https://www.deviantart.com/patricktcpope) for new updates of my best work--both photography and art--and check out my 'fun' account at :iconcaptain-galant: for any cute snapshots or fun doodles I end up finishing.
Thank you all for your watches and faves. :) The images in this account will remain, but no new ones will be added.
Take care! :wave:
