I don't normally do this

I try to keep this place reasonably original & don't like copping stuff from other message boards, blogs, or anything (unless, of course, it's super heroes in questionable positions) and if I do happen to do this I'll try to give credit where credit is due.

I've always felt a bit slighted that the scene had died down a bit by the time I hit the streets but there will always be the guys telling you how things "Used to be".
I kind of like to think their influence was felt.


(Actually, my apologies for quite a few of these crummy pics....digital photography sure has come a long way in 10 years!)
