    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    When our kids were young, they always snickered when we bypassed this Kentucky state park.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Thank God I live west of Richmond, so traffic is not as bad.

    At the risk of being indelicate... This exit in Troy, MI says all you need to know.

    LOL, I've an old photo of that exit that I have been looking for to post to this thread. My undergrad was in Toledo, Ohio, and at one point my mother was traveling to Troy (from the Cleveland area) for work for several months. I decided to visit her, and my father gave me directions. He said, "You want to exit at, and I'm not making this up, Exit 69; Big Beaver Road."
    That is the only reason I'd brought a camera with me.

    Queen Elizabeth I of England. She was the virgin queen and Virginia was named after her.

    Overall, place names rarely make much sense. But it would beveven more confusing if you change them.
