I'm not going to promise that it's not going to be another 2 years before I write a journal entry, but I do have a blog on my website (www.alainarkraus.com) and am doing the photo-a-day challenge for 2012. I tend to post in batches because, well, life is busy, but I do post on there regularly.

Also, I went to Europe for three weeks earlier this year so more photos may surface from that trip as well as from my day to day camera activities.

Thanks for stopping by!
