Welcome "Thinker" !

 

I love Rodin's sculpture, and I feel it says alot visually about who I am too. I have a wonderful large bronze set of bookends of the Thinker sitting on marble bases.

Pleasure to meet  you also......

I Am thinking of posting the maps here  individually as pics instead of thumbnails... I would just post from the 1880's to the early 60's...The maps and pics in those years are, to me, the best ones.

Thank you for your comments Philip. Yes, it was a real honor and one that I'll never forget. So was boarding the The Queens Royal Yacht in 1976 at Rarotonga. I'll post some of these photo's at a later date. Another honor was the Photographer on the Rarotonga International Airport from start to finish during the early 70's and seeing H.M. Queen Elizabeth II open it in person and photographing her doing it. Kinest regards, Bill
