While in Aruba last week, Kathy and I spent one afternoon viewing reefs, sea life and shipwrecks 130 beneath the ocean’s surface through the oversized porthole of an Atlantis VI submarine. I posted more photos on Instagram:

I photographed Philadelphia’s early News Year’s Eve fireworks over the Delaware River near the Ben Franklin Bridge Thursday evening.

Next, I am starting 2016 with a trip which may keep me off the grid for much of the next week or so.

Happy New Year!
