Thank you for your interest in my pictures. I live in Burlington, Iowa, USA, on the Mississippi River in the southeastern part of Iowa, a community of about 30,000 people in the middle of the United States. With the state of Illinois just across the river, it is a mostly agricultural economy, with lots of smaller businesses and industry, a large regional medical center and a community college. The area is blessed with lots of people involved in and interested in the Arts. Settled in the 1830's mainly by German and Irish immigrants, it is the namesake of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. I am happy to share views especially of my hometown with the Panoramio Community, just as I enjoy seeing the people, places and things that are important to my new friends from around the world. Hopefully this can lead to better understanding and communication with peoples around the world we share.
Some of my photos also are included in a blog set up for a writing group I belong to, The Society of Great River Poets, http://greatriverpoets.blogspot.com/
