This is another of your exceptionally good photographs, r.w., and an excellent illustration of why civilization needs to preserve its artists as national treasures with generous--nay, lavish--compensation and benefits. L+F even though I am confused by your title, which seems to refer to nothing we can see in the picture, although one can certainly infer "flotsam" on any Virginia shore from long familiarity with the wretched refuse . . . .

Thank you Douglas. I clarified the title. I've noticed that this pic is still not to be seen on GE & GM.

Well I was right about the wretched refuse part then. It is true that I have not attempted to find it in either GE or GM. You are pretty hard to find yourself, which is why I cling to your Panoramio manifestation. Besides GE takes too long to load anyway. ;-)) But gee, what a photographer! Hope to see you in person one of these days!

After enjoying a few days off for Thanksgiving I'm now being shipped off to Leonardtown MD for a week. Expect to see some pics of Southern MD soon. I thought I was supposed to have off from Dec 15th till Jan 2nd according to what was told me when I was hired, but as with everything else that was told me when I took this job, it too is a lie. Am I allowed to say.... I hate my job.

Heh heh! I told you professional photography was more rotten than anyone would admit. But at least you get to travel and meet well-behaved people, many of whom will have bathed. If you don't find images jammed together in that tiny state waiting for you to tease them out into the open I miss my guess! B.M.G. will be so thrilled with all the R.C. churches you will be able to notch on your camera that she may vacation in MD next year!

As corporations are people, they have a Constitutional right to lie just like everyone else and get away with it just like everyone else. When the British soldiers played the tune, "The World Turned Upside Down" on the Yorktown Battlefield after the surrender, they weren't just whistling Dixie! Please address all complaints directly to the Supreme Court in the future--evidently the Constitution has turned Greek to me overnight, and I can't help you.
