Photos on this page were taken by Mike Crane, who should be congratulated for his skill in using a borrowed camera he'd never touched before. Blame for the failure to insert a new battery in the camera, thereby leading to the shutter not fully opening on many shots (although that does add an artsy touch in a few cases), should rest with the camera's owner, Tom Baerwald. Web-apprentice Baerwald also bears primary responsibility for the fundamental HTML programming found on this page.
