1500 Images of My Past Work!

I've learned that once you've been on the internet long enough, it becomes like a closet in the real world. You start stumbling across old things you forgot you bought or did. I completely forgot about my old Flickr account. I stopped updating it once I decided a blog was more what I needed, as opposed to a simple image dump.

More than 1500 images of my past work, mostly Victorian, but including pieces from many time periods. Take a look! I am slowly, but surely, downloading the photos to my new computer. I thought most of them were lost forever when my old computer died.
