Its time for another Trip Down Blog Memory Lane (still trying to make the photo seem relevent). (Also if you missed October’s Month in Review, you can check it out here) L’appel du Vide Highlights This month I did several Photo Essays about a variety of topics. A few, such as one covering the McPherson Square Occupy DC camp, and another with images … Read More
