    The Endless Sunset, Volume 4, by Dead Man Walking

    Note to all viewers: While I am very grateful for being able to share my accumulated work, and more importantly, perhaps provide a temporary escape from the fear of cancer, the popularity of the original multi-page thread has put a strain on the actual server(s) themselves. Dayum!! In order to try and remedy this, I am breaking up the original thread into separate 1 page threads, and once that page is full, the pictures in it will never change, so you won't have to keep going back to that thread to see if there is anything new. If you do find a picture that you would like to have a full resolution copy of, PM me with a web address and I can send it to you. The pictures in here are 1600 pixels wide, and my original images go anywhere from 3,000 to 15,000 pixels wide with 24 bit color, and are suitable for high resolution printing and framing, if you want to spend the money. Hopefully, this work will survive me, and in so doing, and if I can provide comfort to others after my passing then my death will be nothing more than a trivial biological occurrence.

    Christmas season in New Orleans 2015, a few days after the birth of my grandson, who now appears to be a clone of what I looked like 66 years ago .
