These are very low-resolution thumbnails designed to load quickly. Click on each thumbnail to view a high-resolution picture suitable for use in print or electronic publications. When viewing a picture, use the "Save As" command under the "File" menu of your browser to save the picture to your harddrive. You can then import the picture into another program that accepts JPG graphics. Many photo labs (such as Camera Company and Snapfish) can print photographs from digital files, or you can also print these pictures off on your own printer. Please contact me if you need technical assistance.

Please feel free to use these graphics, but I would appreciate receiving credit for them in any publications as well as a copy of the publication.
