About This Website


In the early days of the web when it was smaller and friendlier it was commonplace to have an "about this site" page that gave visitors an idea of who was behind the site. Those days are gone but some of us still like the idea. Without doing any research, or a simple search to attempt to verify my opinion, I find that most sites don't care to let you know who's behind it which may very well also give away the real reason for the site's very existence. You know, selling you something, gathering your personal data, swaying your beliefs, etc. You wont find any of that here.

Prior to moving to Florida my wife and I lived in Minnesota for 25 years, Colorado for 17 years, and now Florida. As 4x4 enthusiasts we spent a lot of time exploring the mountains in Colorado and now I'm turning my attention to photography since Florida is one very flat state forcing me to find new activities. I've been building websites since the early days when pages were gray with black text and adding a logo was cutting edge. Things have come a long way and while I no longer keep abreast of the technology I still like to have a website to give me something to do when I feel like messing with one.

I've been building websites since the early days of gray pages with black text and adding images was still a dream. I kept up on the techniques for years but haven't lately as I'm retired and happy to let it pass me by. I do want to thank a few of the generous folks out there that make building a website easier than ever before though. Thank you to these people.

While I miss the Rocky Mountains I don't miss the thin air at altitude or cold air that make my COPD worse. I love the wildlife of Florida and am grateful to live close to the Everglades and all it has to offer.

These photos are pretty much just as they came out of my camera, no extensive Photoshop adjustments, maybe a bit of cropping but my intent is to learn what I'm doing rather than learn how to make changes afterwards. I don't claim to be an accomplished photograher and posted photos cover a range from good photos to snapshots. I hope that as time goes on I'll see improvements from the early photos to the newest.

Most websites have some sort of commenting system allowing guests to post a comment of some sort. It's always nice to have some interaction with guests so please don't hesitate to leave a comment yourself. No registration is required, your e-mail is used only to prevent spam and is never visible and always kept private. If you have a website and enter the full URL your name becomes a link to your website. Of course I'd appreciate it if you let me know if an inapproprite comment gets by me so I can remove it.

Lastly if you're wondering the significance of my domain name (c12s.com) I'll explain it now. It means nothing and it's my opinion that domain names don't have much value any longer. I thought maybe cs.com (my initials) would be good but IIRC it is owned by CompuServe which will sound familiar if you're my age. Since cs.com is taken I started adding numbers between the letters. I got to 12 before I found one available and that's the story which I explain simply to close this out on a rather boring point.
